Classic Black & White
The use of white and black in decorating can create a stunning and dramatic decor. Black in accessories, light fixtures, trims, paint, or in one bold piece of furniture will help to catch the eye and sharpen any decorating scheme. It will serve as an outline that sets off specific areas or objects. Black by itself is striking! The use of black and white in decorating gives a fresh, clean, and unquestionably sophisticated and elegant look to any room. If you’re afraid of using just black and white, add variety by adding areas of yellow, pink, camel, red, or purple for a striking look. Keeping black and white prominent, however, preserves the elegant effect.
Black and white really suits a modern style, I highly recommend Ikea for shopping for this look, I live near in Dundalk, so I am fortunate that Ikea in Belfast is only 2 hours away. If I am working on a budget and my client wants a more modern style, this is were I go.
This is such a fresh room, modern black and white at its best. Love the pictures, in the mood for love.
