You might love color, and why wouldn’t you, but you will fall in love with these black and white inspired retreats.

For any room, the first step is to decide how you want the room to feel. Words like calming, dramatic, sophisticated, classic, chic, and cozy can all be great descriptives. Find inspiration in fabric prints or an art piece. Take ideas from high fashion, and go for bold contrast.  The most important thing is that you absolutely must be ready to make a statement or else it will fall flat.

Black and white floors or larger area rugs lend classic personality and a little whimsy to this otherwise traditional, white look. The high-gloss furniture and chrome hardware keep things interesting and unexpected as it infuses some drama and glamour.

Black and white stripes are classic and can instantly add interest to an otherwise basic space. Keep other accessories simple to allow for maximum visual impact. Also, consider altering the shades of white. By rendering walls and flooring in cream, the exposed painted brick and simple painted floors feel much warmer than they might’ve with a true bright white.

A black leather couch offsets the airy white walls of any living space. Tufted furniture is also going to add an elegance and elevate the look of the room.  If the couch will get much use, you should think about specific materials.  Leather is always easy to clean and if it is of good quality, it will last.  Microfiber is easy for cleaning but can fade over time.  So before any big purchases, think about your situation and need.
