Nothing expresses timeless style like black and white. It’s the color palette that just keeps going and going. Whether you want to dress up for a fancy event or dress down for lunch with your besties, black and white always performs perfectly. Black and white also creates a sophisticated space when used correctly. Below we see a pair of black leather pants paired with a white jacket. For your home, try pairing a black sofa with a white coffee table and or a white chair with a black floor lamp. However you tie these two colors together, you will create a timeless space. Here’s the look:
Color Inspiration: Jacket.
Use Pure White on your walls, floors and accessories.
Color Inspiration: Pants and Shirt.
Try Domino inspired black in your upholstered pieces, lighting and wood pieces.
Color Inspiration: Shoes.
Black of Night is another fantastic black to use possibly on an accent wall.
Bonus: Try accents of green in plants and other natural objects throughout your room.
Here is a great example of a black and white space done right. It’s simple yet dramatic. What are your thoughts on this color palette? Would you do this in your own home?
