Why have you selected this color?

I've always been drawn to all things black. If you ask people that know me they will say that my color has always been purple... as you grow and evolve, things change. I chose black because of its simplicity and its ability to be incorporated anywhere. Black just goes with the flow but it is also very powerful and sophisticated.

Why inspires you about this color?

Black is timeless, it evokes emotions, mystery and formality. It grounds and balances any color palette. Everything needs black and a touch of gold!
