Have an Interior Designer stop by and take a look. It is less expensive than making the wrong decision and have to change it and do it again. You get what you pay for.
Good luck.

Dear aymeegb,
Thank you so much for your kind remark. Unfortunately I no longer have those records, fortunately they are not important. Every room and city light condition and space reflect light differently as well as color so there is nothing like testing, so you can even do better, I hope. Try different samples. This is a smooth base or background a matt finish.
Good luck and keep me posted,
Jerry

Thanks! It is hard to say there are many manufacturers for similar products. Best thing is to go to your local shop in SF O'kells and see what is available that meets the local codes, size, etc...

@gigaenvy: Thanks for the info. Is "arogant" a trade name specific to one manufacturer, or is it your opinion of the color (in which case the correct spelling is ARROGANT)?

Please note there is black in the floor, the TV, the wall surrounding the TV, the TV frame, the shelves and the chandelier. I guess they are all slightly different, yet they work together. The marble is "Portoro" which my dealers tell me is the rarest and extremely expensive now. All for Black!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Melissa Rudy added this to High-impact Contrasts
The buttery yellow upholstery of these inviting study furnishings stands out especially well against the dark mahogany of the bookcases and hearth.
Becky Harris added this to How to Stage Shelves
I love the chocolate color of these shelves. It's very reminiscent of Albert Hadley.
Margaret Everton added this to Contained Chaos
These shelves are so beautifully organized, but would even work as a more bohemian set-up as the books more haphazardly situated. The rest of the room is so classic and organized (LOVE how the tv is sleekly integrated) and the shelves are so much darker and distinctly set apart from the room, order would still reign in this regal living area.
Melissa Rudy added this to Fireside Elegance
Good books and roaring fires just seem to go hand-in-hand. I love how this hearth is built into a wall of floor-to-ceiling bookcases, creating a wonderfully inviting reading nook. The dark wood and granite are delightfully contrasted by the playful, buttery upholstery of the seating suite.
Margaret Everton added this to Mellow Yellow
This buttercream contrasts well with the dark wood and adds a softness to this library.
Margaret Everton added this to Creating a Working Library
A favorite living room of mine for integrating a library with a fireside seating area with a little theater. This kind of setting suggests that these books aren't just for show, but are a part of the dweller's life as is a bathtub or front door.
Becky Harris added this to Libraries for Everyone
Cushy, cozy, contemporary - this room is part library, part salon, part television room and it's a great combination!
Niche Interiors added this to Tastefully Incorporating Televisions
Nicely done! The black cabinetry disguises the television and looks chic.
Here is the same room from a different angle.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Decorating With Yellow: Neutral Spaces Kissed by The Sun
Create a rich, neutral backdrop with an espresso accent wall and glossy floors. Then invite vibrant yellow furnishings to take center stage.
Most of the popular living rooms we saw were neutral tones, but here yellow and black break that generalization wide open. Traditional touches like wide molding and built-in bookshelves kept the palette from reading too strong.
A black mantle and hearth gives this seating area an updated look while breaking up the look of books.
Margaret Everton added this to Mid-Century Modern With a Touch of Paris
The formality of Mid-Century Modern parlors meets with the living passion and intellectualism of Paris. The French are so great at keeping their stacks of beloved stuff looking artistic and deliberate.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 5 Ways to Decorate Around a Flat-Screen TV
2: Camouflage with a dark color. Still not loving how much the black shiny rectangle jumps off the wall? Camouflage your TV with a background wall of black, brown, navy, charcoal gray — any dark color of your choosing. This room takes it all the way with the black stone fireplace and ebony floors. I especially love the recessed niche with what appears to be a moulding detail on the inside.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to 19 Double-Duty Living Rooms
Add a fireplace, bookcases and a television and this becomes a family room, library and living room in one.
Scheer & Co. added this to Well-Styled Electronics
Insetting and framing the TV and painting the wall behind it a dark color (chocolate brown, in this case) makes this ubiquitous electronic device blend in with its surroundings. Plus, I think there's something nice about ensconcing a TV among throngs of books.
Becky Harris added this to Favorite Blooms: Summer Sunflowers
Subdued sunflower yellows and dark accents create a wonderfully warm mood in this library.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Great Seating: Cozy Up to the Fireplace
Want to sneakily add in more seating in a less than obvious fashion? Replace a typical coffee table with an oversized ottoman. It will still carry the same effect as a coffee table — ground the center of the layout — and doubles as extra fireside seating when you have guests.
Unify. The architecture here, including the molding and the fireplace, reflects the period when the home was built. To update period architecture, keep the furnishings really simple with clean structured shapes. This will lend a modern vibe and create a nice harmony.Here the simplified shapes are unified with color. The sculptural forms of furniture pieces like these will please those who desire strong, clean lines, while the traditionalist will enjoy the overall structure's being anchored in tradition.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to TGIR: The Case of the Disappearing TV
In the business of writing about architecture and design, you quickly learn that televisions are like guilty pleasures — almost everybody has one, but some go to great lengths to make sure no one else finds out about it. I believe I’ve seen every conceivable technique for hiding the so-called “idiot box,” from paintings that slide over the set to motorized screens that rise from custom furniture. But recently I noticed that some designers have figured out an elegant solution: Simply paint the wall behind the set black, and it fades into the woodwork, so to speak. That’s what the designers at Jerry Jacobs Design did in this room, and you might have to look twice before spotting the set over the fireplace.
