Monday Color: The "Un-Color" Scheme

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.

  1. I like b&w...when it's punctuated with some fabulously bold prints (as you show here).
