It’s an age-old question: why do men fear painting wood? I can’t tell you how many times the following has occurred: I have a color consultation with the lady of the house. There are some horrible 1970s-1980s pieces of wood furniture, dreaded fake paneling in the den, or dated wood cabinets in the kitchen.
I must admit that when I think of high-gloss black, I think cheesy bachelor pad. In the 1980’s. Today, the hottest way to play with black is to use remove the gloss – matte black is in. You might just want to go with an accent wall, like here.
