Black and White interior design is striking and timeless. Black and White represents the negative and the positive, the evil and the good. Just like Yin and Yang, black and white means balance and brings harmony to any interior design project.
Some argue that black and white interior design is the absence of color. Others say it is the strongest color combination possible in interior design. This monochromatic palette is simultaneously conventional and revolutionary. It is classic and contemporary as well.
A black and white interior design project will dare you to be bold. To add touches of gold, vibrant pops of color, and designer furniture. Black and White Interiors also allow you to mix – and not necessarily match – patterns like no other color palette.
Black and White interior design is everything or nothing at all. Be brave, design fiercely, let your creativity flow.
