[ seeing in black and white ]

I'M A BIG FAN of white spaces and love how black & white marry so well together. These rooms are all about keeping it simple and while the colour scheme might be, each room has a lot to say with it's patterns, textures, finishes and details. Could you live with black and white simplicity?

Yes, I can live with just black and white--well, I would have to add a little color in!

I love the look and feel of black and white rooms! However I love color so much that it just wouldn't be for me!

I'm a real black and white person, more white than black. I think it's a great backdrop for colours!! That's why it's perfect for big families where each one brings in the colour with their clothing etc.

I mostly where black and white but live in lots of color! The second photo is my favorite --- I love the wall color.

I could do
dark charcoal gray,
but not sure about
black and white!
My mom always said
that a touch of
black was good in
every room, so that
probably has influenced
my own comfort with
how much I could
live with!

I do live in a white house - on the inside anyway. We decided to leave our walls white when we remodelled, it's been two years and I'm not craving any color yet. Black and white are just about perfect.

It is so funny - I love using color and all of my work is very colorful but I LOVE black/white artwork.

I see it and love it but I cant create it - maybe that is why I love it so much!

Lovely. Black and white, timeless, classic, fresh. I always wanted a big black and white tile floor in my kitchen. :)

Love the black and white article. I aspire to achieve it someday. Our entire house has white IKEA flooring....and a black dog. Ooopsy.
