Technically black's not a colour, it's a shade. Sorry, I have sort of a compulsion to say that whenever it comes up. Blame it on my time in art school. I avoid white clothes because they get dirty child fingerprints and food stains on them and I don't like bleaching stuff. I don't really wear much black either. I'm a bright colours kind of person.
I think it all depends on where and what!
I do not like white clothes for example as I find they show the dirt and can only be worn once, hence I have two pairs of white pants in my dressing room which i have hardly ever worn.
I like black in a lot of things, but not in furnishings as I think they tend to make a room depressing unless you have very bright colours with it.
On saying that I recall building a house once, and wanting a shiny black bedroom. The builder would not do it, so had to get an outside painter, and I had pink curtains, lampshades -obviously I was living alone -and it was FABULOUS though on looking back, perhaps a bit like a bordello.
Yes I have been inside one, and that is another story!
