What color would look good in a black & white room?

I'm redoing my room in black and white and some kind if accent color. I can't decide what would look the best though. Opinions are welcome. :)

I think any color would go good with those. Personally, I would pick like a hot pink, or just leave it black and white.

Get a lot of neon colors and splat them on your walls and then get a black light. I think that would look sick!

First add gray.THEN add red.This is the art school answer.

What's the art school explanation for the answer? Just curious.

Black and white over a large area,like a room,need a transition color.Gray is it because gray is black mixed with white.Once you get the gray going on,its more mellow to the eyes to introduce a primary color,like red.The red will explain itself better in the presence of the gray.They used to make us do these things with colored paper in all white rooms.The paper with the colors was the Pantone color scale.

Red and black. Pretty much anything except extra bright colors like pink and yellow and no neon colours.

The majority of these answers are correct, red would accent black and white the best

Personally I like blue. But basically black and white can go with any color. So just pick your favorite color so that way it shows a sense of you.

Deep red. With the grey like Kitty said. I can see where she's going with that.

I really think that a neon green would really pop... I have these neon green lamp shades that go with these metallic lamps that look great. You could try and source a painter on www.servicerunner.com and find a Pro to do it for you....to be honest painting does not always come out great on one's own.

In the winter, black with pink, in the spring, white and pink. It goes great.

Find an item that means a lot to you, or is an inspiration to you in some way (like a painting, souvenir
from a trip, cd cover from a fave band, gift from a person you care about etc etc)...Take a key colour from the item and use it! Oh, and make sure that the item is displayed in the room somehow. Have fun with it!
