I've never found myself drawn to the use of black and white in decor.
In theory it sounds cold, lifeless and possibly even a little depressing. But lately, I've been finding images that have the opposite effect for me...
Black and white textiles make a bold statement in any room. They're almost like a pop of un-color. And black and white spaces with a single accent color are unquestionably sophisticated.
I don't think I'd ever be happy living in a purely black and white environment, but using elements of this un-color pairing could definitely create some interesting depth and drama.
