Black and White Style

Michael Jackson once said “And if you’re thinking about my baby, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.” Obviously, his meaning here is black is stylin’, white is stylin’, but a black and white combo is simply bitchin’! Eat your heart out colors of the rainbow!

For those of you that dig a B/W vibe but like accent colors, I will have an upcoming series of our beloved B/W combo but with a punchy color included to establish a fine trio of action. 

Commence the formation of an envious drool thread in your mouth:


Contemporary Entry by Dc Metro Interior Designers & Decorators JWS Interiors
What is that glorious wallpaper you ask? It’s actually Patterned Vinyl from Uppercase Living, you know so you can change it around if it starts to feel stale… ideal for a focal wall or small nook *HEAD EXPLODING*
Transitional Entry by Cambridge Architects & Building Designers LDa Architecture & Interiors
These custom doors were done by Borano because you want to know! Feel that ocean breeze kittens…


Contemporary Dining Room by Houston Photographers JONATHAN CALVERT | Interiors Photographer
Can we all just stop our busy lives for a second and look at the black and white treatment of the molding? With a black ceiling to boot!!! Cue saliva! The paint is SW Caviar Black because it knows how fancy it is.  
Transitional Dining Room by Lenexa Interior Designers & Decorators Kathleen Ramsey, Allied ASID
Those chairs though… custom designed by DesignmasterWall plates by Global Views. Black walls pulled off with dark wood floors, gobsmacked. 
Transitional Kitchen by Cambridge Architects & Building Designers LDa Architecture & Interiors
Drooling yet? How about these black cabinets surrounded by glorious chrome accents? Notice how the swirls of gray and black in the Argos marble of the island pull it all together. 
Beach Style Kitchen by Shelter Island Architects & Building Designers SchappacherWhite Architecture D.P.C.
Ah, the chalkboard wall. A prime way to give any room character, particularly when it is a focal wall against contrasting white and light woods. Feel the dribble folks!
Traditional Kitchen by Chicago Kitchen & Bath Designers Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab
There is something about a black kitchen island with white marble that speaks to me in a level I don’t understand. Pair this with industrial accents…I mean really. 
Traditional Powder Room by Minneapolis Interior Designers & Decorators Martha O’Hara Interiors
This is like the Kardashians where you may hate them but you kind of can’t stop looking at them because they are so damn pretty… Would I recreate this look? Probably not but deep down I really want to. 
Transitional Bathroom by Victoria Interior Designers & Decorators The Sky is the Limit Design
Sometimes black and white tile can be too cheesy for me, but this bathroom nailed it! The crystal knobs on the cabinets and the marble sink all work together to create one class act.
Traditional Powder Room by Glendale Design-Build Firms ARPA Design-Build Co., Inc
I know you guys were waiting for the stripes…here they are! You have to love the black paneling with white trim too. The intricate gold accessories are not bad either. Find a similar chandelier on Wayfair, the floor is Nero Marquina Black 12X12 marble and the wallpaper is from Sherwin Williams, 5 1/4″ stripes. BAM!
Traditional Powder Room by Brooklyn Photographers Ofer Wolberger, LTD.
I am feeling the high gloss black and that sink though…
Contemporary Living Room
I am digging this style, how did they find all those white books? Also, I have an obsession with each and everyone of these pillows.

This room is sporting the B/W scheme through the accessories. This is Hemphill’s Beach Stripe Flat Weave RugAlso, find similar pillows from Society6
Contemporary Family Room by Orange County Interior Designers & Decorators Orange Coast Interior Design
This is probably the most elegant family room I have ever seen. Get a load of that ceiling and the chandeliers! Can we just take a second to acknowledge the huge family portrait…..ha awkward. 
Contemporary Home Office by Saskatoon Interior Designers & Decorators Atmosphere Interior Design Inc.
I am vibing with the black leather. See how wallpaper can revolutionize the look of a room. I mean WOWZA! 
Industrial Bedroom by Mexico City Architects & Building Designers Elias Kababie
B/W does not need to be contemporary or traditional, check out this industrial room with white painted brick. 
Contemporary Bedroom by Washington Interior Designers & Decorators Supon Phornirunlit / Naked Decor
These owner braved black trim on a white wall and all different B/W patterns. I know you love the bed, it is Birkeland from Ikea REJOICE!
If you drooled on yourself, DO NOT BE ASHAMED!
These rooms make me wish that Sillywhim never found her colors in Wee Sing in Sillyville, if you also watched this amazing, adventurous movie as a kid, I think I love you. 
Until next time,
