Using Black Paint In The Kitchen

Black cabinets, countertops, floors and appliances come in and out of fashion in kitchen design. But what about black paint? More and more people are painting at least one wall of the kitchen dark with chalkboard paint. But in this kitchen featured in Swedish magazine Skona hem, the far wall of a mostly white kitchen is painted in a matte black...The dark paint gives the room depth and a grounded feeling (and bright red and pale yellow accents keep it light). It's the opposite of cheery, yet it looks inviting and warm. Would you use black paint in the kitchen?
