A Black and White Home

A black and white palette in any room, in any home, creates a classic, elegantly composed space...



A stunning graphic entrance/exit to any home... the black and white paint treatment on the door keeps it bold and fun against the pale blue beaded board walls.

Long drapes of peacock-and-leaf print fabric serve as a dramatic room divider between the entryway and living space. Pictures and artwork are framed and matted in different combinations of black and white to create a stunning wall display.

Black-and-white flower print chair and minimalistic modern art makes for a classy and cozy space.

Bold checkerboard walls in black and white. The pattern can be achieved with wallpaper, a stencil, or by using painter's tape and accurate measurements. The tiny sparkling chandelier adds a touch of elegance.

Fun black and white accents adorn the space.. note most of the accessories are portable -- towels, rugs, and a bench -- making for an easy way to transform space.

Soft blue walls and furnishings provide a backdrop for the elegant touches of black and white accents.

Black and white and a tones of pale aqua adds class to this space. The large black-and-white photos bring character and personality to the intimate setting.

A black-and-white tiled floor reflects glamourously in the mirrored furnishings.

Black accessories shine against the creamy white mantel and mirrored sconces.

The black and white colour scheme is accented with patterned pillows, a crystal chandelier, and beautiful china.

The classic table setting can be punctuated with a few pink linens to make a colourful statement.

A stricking black-and-white toile shade adds a classic touch to the neutral workspace.

Ruffled shade arch elegantly in the kitchen and the toile pattern adds pizazz to this black and white kitchen.

More toile and black-and-white fabrics and antique furniture all combine to give this breakfast banquette a charming look.

Showcase black-and-white dishes and accessories in a painted hutch to make them pop.

Elegance is found in the toile print wallpaper, vintage furnishings, and the striking black and white table setting. A splash of lime in the vase and serving table adds a touch of contrasting colour.

A classic black-and-creamy white upholstered armchair with a soft pink throw complement the minimalist artwork.


Black-and-white photos above a white mantel make for an artistic, graphic statement. Thin black frames let the images stand out.

Twin black canopoy beds and other dark elements blend elegantly in the cream, white, and gray space.

Black-and-gold pictures and an aqua sign over the window provides a playful touch in a tiny space.

A comfortable and whimsy space with the black and white accents paired with pale pink and soft blue.


Graphic black and white patterns pop against the unexpected lime and mellow blue. Create your own patterned black-and-white mosaic on a narrow magnetic board or bulletin board.
