Bold Black and White

Black and white will always make a statement. The combination is clean, clear and can fit into traditional or modern interiors. Some of my favorite black and white design choices are white cabinets with black granite counter tops, white cotton panels with black fringe, black and white toile wallpaper or white slipcovers on black painted dining chairs. Black and white can be very formal (think black tie) or right at home in a beach house. The simplicity of black and white can be made more exciting with bold color accessories in red, yellow or lime green or turned into a soothing space with soft pink or blue accents. I love this black and white window treatment for it's great proportions and bold applique design. (Photo from Domino Magazine, Jan/Feb 2006)
