Black + White Home Décor Inspiration

Black and White Home Décor Inspiration

While we certainly appreciate color, there’s something we absolutely love about a monochromatic black & white space – whether it be the living room, bedroom, dining area, bathroom, or kitchen. We’re particularly drawn to the black & white rooms that remind of us of a Parisian pied-à-terre, with sleek lines, a mix of soft and glamorous textures, and unique statement pieces. The contrasting color palette also works well for glam, Scandinavian, modern, and eclectic rooms. Add some more texture and colorful accents & you’ve got a great base for a boho-chic room, incorporate organic woods & you’ll get a sleek rustic space… the options are endless!

If you're looking to incorporate a black & white color palette into your home’s design scheme, it’s important to make sure a few of the key pieces – ex. sofa, coffee table, dresser & nightstands – are either black, white, or a mixture of the two. You can also incorporate pillows, artwork, rugs, and additional accessories in a monochromatic black & white color palette to truly embrace the theme. We love adding black-and-white elements into a variety of our client’s designs as the combination of hues is timeless, classic, and will never go out of style. Some people may say the colors are “boring” but as long as you mix up materials, textures, and patterns, we think this two-tone palette can be just as (or more!) exciting than a colorful space.
