Default Anyone else tired of basically only one tech / equipment color option?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for a hot pink receiver or a canary yellow DVD player, but I'm sooo tired of everything being black. I currently live in a townhouse, so I never put much thought into my setup. But over time, the constant appearance of darkness in my entertainment area (even my stand is black) is bringing me down. My g/f decorated the living room in a safari theme, so there's even more dark colors picking away at me.

Once we get a home early next year, I've decided I can't take it anymore, I want light colors (pastels) everywhere. The deep, dark is just too much anymore. Plus, I believe on some level (even if minor at best), lighter surroundings will help one's state of mind.

To the point... I've been looking around for new gear for my upcoming HT setup in our house and virtually every piece of equipment is black. Where's the white, the silver...and are those the only three colors (white, silver, black) that make sense. I don't know, maybe a very light brown / tan...

Do companies not bother producing other colors due to costs? Do consumers have no interest in change? Will LG save the dog before the cave explodes (oops, sorry...old timey cartoon moment).

From the furniture, to the wall color, to the equipment itself, I'm surprised more people aren't sick of it by now. Side note, for the HT setups with light colors (the equip is still dark), they looked so refreshing.

Edit... Oh, and if I'm crazy and there is a ton of other colors out there, please point me in the right direction. I've found Onkyo has some of their equipment in silver and Bose has white (but I'm not paying for overrated and priced Bose), but not much else.

I've seen white Samsung LCDs. Kinda cool looking. I still prefer black, but that's just me.

Sony also does interchangable color bezels on their SXRDs and Bravias.(possibly more models but I'm not sure)

Check this out for an example of what I'm talking about...

Edit:

My link isn't working. Just go to SonyStyle.com, and search for "color bezel"
