There are a few guarantees in this world, but there is one thing you can always count on: Black will never go out of style. The dark shade may seem intimidating when it comes to home design, but this season, the inky hue adds depth and texture to every surface imaginable (not to mention, three paint companies named black the 2018 color of the year).
