What could be more chic and timeless than black and white? Even though it may seem boring to some, a monochrome palette is simply fabulous and probably one of my favorite color combinations. Simple, yet striking, it makes for an everlasting impact. It can stand on its own or can be used as a perfect foundation – like a black and white floor – for example. So wether you’re looking for a full style upgrade or just want to add some interesting accents to your home, you are bound to fall for these gorgeous ideas….and they are anything but boring!
1. Black and White Prints
Tiles and wallpaper can be very dramatic, but are sure to make a splash. If attempting for the first time, an easy and safe bet is to start with a small space like a guest bathroom. If that seems like too much to take on, a black and white rug can make quite the entrance. Or maybe you want to play it really safe and start with the laundry room…love the one below.
2. Black and White Art
A less costly option is to print your family photos in large format and hang them as gallery in your foyer or down a long hallway. A classic that will never go out of style is black and white art and iconic prints.
3. Black and White Accents
The beauty of black and white is that it can act as a beautiful accent to an already decorated interior. A conversation piece at dinner parties or among friends – like ceramics and pottery – are a fabulous, yet memorable mix.
4. Last Impressions
And just because I could never tire of black and white, I’ve included a few more inspirational images.
