Although I am definitely a "color person", I seem to be drawn to pictures lately of rooms done in the simple color scheme of black and white. Clean and crisp, black and white is often used in contemporary rooms, but works just as well in traditional schemes. A white sofa often anchors this color scheme in living room settings, with one or more patterns in black and white as accents. Not only does it work well in living rooms, but also in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms! And if you get bored with the lack of "color", adding any accent color (in pillows, artwork, flowers) can change the entire look in minutes. Add a touch of bright yellow or green for spring, cool blue for summer, maybe rust or chocolate for fall, or a rich red for the Christmas season....and your black and white room will take on an entirely different personality! Check out the rooms below for some examples of black and white at its best.
