If opposites attract, black and white are a match made in heaven. This sophisticated color combination has become a favorite among designers for its simplicity and modern edge. And did we mention it looks good anywhere in the house?
If you’re looking to incorporate black-and-white furniture into your home, read on. We’ve gathered our favorite ways to make this color combo pop.
A simple black-and-white color palette lends itself to pattern play and texture. Look for furniture and décor made from materials such as wicker and terracotta. These pieces look especially boho with plants – real or silk styles add warmth to the room.
A black-and-white room doesn’t need to be devoid of color – go bold! Pick a statement piece, such as an area rug or piece of wall art, in bright oversized florals. It’ll brighten the room and add a modern touch.
White with Black Accents
If you’re Scandinavian-saavy in style, stick to white walls and furniture, but have fun with black accents and décor. Black pendant lights and chandeliers look especially vogue in these spaces.
Black with White Accents
Black walls are trending and a welcomed change for those who aren’t afraid to paint. Matte black creates a moody background for metal (we love polished bronze) and textured linens in white, cream, and gray.
Transparent accents add a contemporary element to otherwise traditional black-and-white décor.
Black and white looks particularly chic when paired with unfinished wood and Southwestern motifs. Think desert-home-meets-Manhattan high-rise.
High ceilings and plenty of natural light lend an urban edge to black-and-white living rooms. Solid colors complement materials such as exposed brick, wood grain, and iron – a bonus if you want to highlight industrial style.
