Black and White Interiors
What Do You Think of Black and White Interiors?
There is something so crisp and clean about black and white interiors. The simplicity and contrast using both ends of the color spectrum are used over and over in interior decorating and design. It’s a classic look that remains timeless and that’s why we love it so much. Here are some of our favorite interior photos using black and white…
Black and White in the Dining Room
Typically people are apprehensive when it comes to painting walls black, however, with the contrast of a white ceiling, drapery panels, artwork and furniture, it brightens up the space and makes this dining room feel spacious and dramatic. Don’t be afraid to go dark on the walls, but just remember, you need to contrast the room with lighter colors so that your room doesn’t turn out too dark.
In Kitchen Design
This modern kitchen also incorporates a bit of gray which softens the stark contrast of black and white interiors. If you want to add a pop of color to your black and white interiors, try adding yellow or red. In this kitchen, a simple bowl of lemons adds a pop of color to the room and gives the room a fresh look.
Black and White in Bedroom Design
This black and white bedroom design adds warmth by using a mid-range taupe wall color. Painting the fireplace accent wall in black creates a focal point in the room. Again, notice the fireplace and art are white so they contrast the black wall. For a lighter feel, a white upholstered bed would lighten the room, but a dark room always creates a cozy and relaxing place to sleep.
In the Living Room
The use of black and white in this living room interior creates a light feel since the use of black is used more sparingly. It’s also a room that has a lot of natural light with the large windows. Adding accents of black in the drapery trim and pillows, it keeps the space open and airy. The use of geometric patterns in the pillows and rug also gives the room a bold and interesting look.
