black and white interiors

We love color, but every where we turn we are seeing black and white interiors that we love. Black and white is a timeless and dramatic combo that always looks fresh and modern. When decorating with black and white it is important to balance the light and dark so the room is still vibrant. Light can be brought into the room with windows, rustic elements or pops of color. Whether you add a black and white throw pillow, paint your cabinets black or pick a bold wallpaper, black and white interiors are so fabulous!  Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate black and white into your home:

Wallpaper

There are so many amazing wallpapers with black and white patterns. How stunning is this Queen of Spain Wallpaper by Schumacher?

Cabinets

We are so on board with the black cabinet kitchen trend. You would think it would be too dark and moody, but it looks incredible in these kitchens.  We love the kitchens that have floor to ceiling black cabinets just as much as we love the kitchens with black cabinets on the bottom and white cabinets on the top.

Walls

Black walls are definitely a bold move, but in a room with big windows or big doses of white it can work so well. All of these rooms feel very calm and clean. This round up of black paint colors by Jenna Burger is a great resource when choosing the right black for your walls or cabinets.

Black Framed Windows

Black framed windows are incredibly popular right now and we can see why! Black windows look so elegant, especially against light colored walls.
