Black and white color schemes exude sophistication and glamor all while staying fresh and clean. A simple color scheme such as this can pack a large punch while staying simple. Contemporary interiors often combine black and white with sleek metals. Rustic or Parisian chic decorating is often set off with this color combination with the use of more traditional patterns such as toile.
If you’re a bit timid of using just black and white, add variety by adding areas of yellow, pink, camel, red, or purple. Keeping black and white prominent, however, preserves the elegant effect.
Here are my top picks for using black and white in decor:
I love the classic black and white tiles laid at an angle and paired with rustic wall finishes and light fixtures.
Dramatic and modern living room with matte black walls is easily brightened up by the light flooring. The way the tailored drapery is hung over the window is the great way of dealing with a bay window.
This is a perfect example of pairing a bit of color with a black and white scheme.
Tailored and chic, this design is timeless.
