karmalkween:  I would just go to Sears, K Mart, WalMart etc and get blackout blinds. They keep out a lot of heat.

Failing that, many people use aluminum foil in there windows for that purpose.

To answer your question, black absorbs heat so the room will be warmer, but it reflects light so the room will be darker. The situation is reversed for white. Room will be cooler, but lighter.
