Black & White

Start with black and white any you will develop a color scheme that is as versatile as it is tasteful and ever stylish.
Strong in it's own right, the neutral non- color scheme gracefully accepts a vivid third element, but be sure to choose a hue bold enough to stand it's own with this graphic pair.

Chic, dramatic and yet so simple . . . black and white make a bold statement in any space. Would you consider this duo in your castle ?

  1. ABSOLUTELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLOR COMBINATIONS, WHAT I LIKE BEST IS YOU PUT ANY BOLD COLOR WITH IT AND IT DOENST HAVE TO BE ALOT BUT YET HAS A BEAUTIFUL IMPACT. lOVE THE ORANGE AND GREEN WITH THE BLACK AND WHITE. ANOTHER AWESOME POST!!!

  4. I was just visiting a home this week which was black and white throughout....the interesting thing to me was that it was filled with antiques and looked so sophisticated and elegant...I loved the look...I guess I had associated the color scheme with a more modern decor and this was very traditional...
    Have a great night!

  6. I have NEVER done black and white but I'm always so envious of people who do because it is SO versatile and you see all the different ways folks change up the look of their entire house by changing out the accent color by season. Maybe my next house? Your sample rooms are lovely!

  9. Love the black and white equation not only for one's home but also for a wardrobe.

    In both instances; classic, modern and chic just by adding an accessory of color. -Brenda-
