Topical Trends: Over The Black Wall Barrier

Black walls have a bad rap. People associate the darkest hue with vampires, shadows, doom and gloom, but this color that absorbs all other colors is making a comeback. Black adds unexpected sophistication and induces instant visual drama. Lately, black is killing it.
