The designers I work with all specify black. Black is definitely the new black, till next season at least. Who cares, if she's of a mind to complain about the colour of your plasma rather than the quality of the picture, she should spend less time reading shallow female magazines. It's times like this I realise how lucky I am. We walked past the plasmas in Comet today, 'God! look at the banding on that one!' she said. Her Chairman has Bose speakers, I have trained her to spot the 'woof' when the sub kicks in, she now shows signs of physical pain listening to music on Bose.
I bought Black Panel, Silver Stand a la Pioneer. Thought black might look a bit bacherlor pad when coupled with black ash furniture, red and grey papered walls and that poster of the tennis player scratching her ar** but it is actually far more discreet and less ostentatious than silver would have been (if thats possible with a MASSIVE tele in your lounge)
