Black and White - A Timeless Classic

Black and White - A Timeless Classic

A growing trend in the interior design world is the inclusion of opposites in a space.  Combining a traditional furniture piece with modern art, mixing smooth surfaces with textured  surfaces or using light and dark elements make a space visually interesting and appealing. We found the classic opposite color palette of black and white on everything from furniture to textiles to accessories at High Point Market this spring!

While this design trend has always been in style, this season it is hotter than ever.  This design scheme can fit seamlessly  into a variety of styles including classic chic, modern high tech or timeless retro. It is amazing how dramatic and vivid a space can be in all white and black! The patterns, textures and bold shapes really stand out making the space feel energized and vibrant!

The texture on these accessories is very striking and all the more prominent in all white!

Black case goods add drama and elegance to a space.

Silver accents can compliment black and white designs and add some shine without contrasting the grayscale color scheme.

If you put black and white in your bedroom, you get a clean, fresh, classically chic space that feels new and glamorous! Your eye is immediately drawn to the clean lines without the distraction of color!

You can’t go wrong adding a vibrant punch of color to a black and white room! These accessories do not compete but rather compliment the space by being one solid, bold color! You can put almost any vibrant color you like in a black and white room with a similar effect.

Grouping a large amount of black or white accessories together for a big impact is another great design idea! These beautiful white selenite crystals reflect light and add sparkle! They can look so pretty stacked up in a fireplace or displayed in a large bowl on a dining room table!

So even though we adore color, giving this chic, dramatic look a chance can be a fun design alternative for your home!
