Whether on their own or together these two can make a bold statement.? Do we love them because they can pack a powerful punch ? Or is it because they are also so classic and timeless?
I love it when the duo is paired with a lot of texture so that it tones down the contrast.
The armoire and picture frame in this Daryl Carter designed room creates a bold statement against the stark white walls. The rest of the room is quietly peaceful.
This textile is the star of this room against a gray wall.
Here the walls are a biscuit color. Notice how the background of the large pillow and the art echo the color of the walls. Here the statement is subtle.
I adore this room. The addition of texture and “the not so black” accessories lighten the effect.
This painting is the star of this setting. Can you imagine it without it?
I am crazy about this vignette….. the clever mix of the art with the folk art.
More Daryl Carter…does anyone do Black and White better than he?
Me thinks a stylist did this. What do you think?
Do you have a favorite? Would you or do you use black and white in your own home? If so how?
