Decorating with Black & White
March 9, 2012
I’ve had black and white interiors on my mind for months now, every time I see one it jumps out at me, not for lack of color obviously but for the way the well thought out black and white space is both classic and modern all at once and with little or no color to assist. Like the classic black and white film or photograph, I find these spaces so sophisticated, elegant and divine! It’s the high contrast that I’m so drawn to – how the whites deepen the blacks, and the blacks brighten the whites.
I’m fascinated how much personality exists in these multilayered spaces both casual and formal. Here are some of my most favorites to inspire, punctuated by a few fun objects for your home.
