Room Decor Ideas: BLACK & WHITE

Room Decor Ideas: BLACK & WHITE

Black is the color of authority and power, while white is the color of purity and cleanliness.  Both are popular in design because they are both neutral and timeless.  There’s something chic adding black and white to your room decor. It seems to never go out of style and black and white is simple and sophisticated. Add some elegance with these inspiring black and white ideas.

Another décor idea is to style your room in black and white with a pop of one accent color as pictured above. It makes a bold statement. I decorated my daughter’s nursery in black and white with a pop of green.  Not your traditional baby room colors, however I used a repeated damask print that gave the décor a feminine touch.  It will also stay in style as she gets older and grows well in to her teens.  I can keep the black and white, and simply change the accent color.

Whether you decide to be discrete with a lamp or kitchen utensils, or go excessive with wallpaper and carpet, black and white adds interest to any room.
