Black Walls. A New Trend??

Lately, in several different magazines, I have noticed the use of black paint as the main wall color and then today I came across a post on Apartment Therapy mentioning the use of black walls in small spaces. What do you think? Does anyone have black walls (or a wall) in their home? Chalkboard painted walls don't count. ; ) 

 I love the look of this dining room! Keeping the furniture and other accents on the lighter side save this room from looking like a cave.

The paneled walls look fantastic and check out the black and white striped wall in the other room!

Black and white bedroom... Nice.

Great looking room. Love the mirrored coffee table.

How about black in the kitchen? The turquoise doors looks amazing with the rest of the room.

I love the black walls they really are striking with the bright white trim and I do LOVE that turquoise door.

I agree, Lynda. The turquoise door adds a great pop of color and really completes the look of the space.

I can see house today where wall are colored black and the designs are just shown on paintings and other accessories. I've visited a house before where their motifs is "everything black", from appliances to furniture. It was a mix of modern and classic design, which made it lovely.
