Some of us use white as the most common “go to” solution, especially if we are afraid of color and are not sure how these visual statements are going to look once on the wall.

Black, in small amounts, intentionally placed, can add a wonderful classy, dramatic, sophisticated element into our environment.

Placed in area with lots of light like on a window frame or entry door can help our eyes to focus and bring the outside into the room more easily.

I especially like it in combination with small amounts of gold (like in the picture frame).
