The Art of Black: Black with Pop

Black is actually my favorite color. Many present it as the color of darkness and evil, but it can also represent power. In ancient Egypt, it represents life and rebirth.

It absorbs all light in the color spectrum: so its either draining or completely fulfilling. I like to look at it as quite complete, and integrative. Everything goes with black.

I love what has to say about the feng shui of black:

"Black color is full of the feng shui energy of mystery and sophistication; it holds the energy of power and protection. The color of night, deep waters and universal void, feng shui use of color black adds depth, strength and definition to any space.

In Feng Shui, Black belongs to the element of Water, direction North, and it is the color of Yin, or feminine, passive energy in the feng shui Yin-Yang combination."

I love that black is feminine- the Yin of the Yang; and now it makes complete sense why men also love it so much.

I didn't want to appear completely overpowering on this sunny day in August, so here are some black rooms with unexpected pops of color for your viewing pleasure. Happy weekend!

Now that's powerful!
