Black wall paint is something we usually see in its appearance.
But in the kitchen above, you can indeed see that the dominance of black or the color of the glass is seen in the kitchen cabinet. However, for wall paint, they prefer to use warm colors like beige. You can also combine it with white or brown as seen on the kitchen island and the chair beside it.

One of the characteristics that characterize the gothic architectural style that is most often used is the Vault. This term is used to reflect architecture for curved roofs or buffers.
