No one wants to spend time and money on redecorating or renovating only to have the end result quickly go out of style. You want a look that will last as long as your TIERTM indoor flooring (shameless plug). We’ve got three words to help you: black and white.
Using black and white may not be considered a style in its own right, but it’s a building block to creating a sophisticated, timeless and just really cool look. Here are a few tips on how to get the most from these two most basic colours.
Since your colours in a primarily black and white room are simpler, use pieces that offer unique shapes and textures to keep the space interesting. Pillows and blankets are there for the throwing and offer you a tactile outlet for bedrooms and living rooms, as well as a softening effect. In dining rooms and kitchens consider table cloths, place mats or even dish sets in funky patterns, whether black, white or one on the other.
A black and white canvas is just asking for a pop. Go funky with a bright pop of colour or embrace sophistication with touches of muted gold. Feel free to repeat this colour pop (or complementary colour) elsewhere in the room. A black and white bedroom is enhanced by a boldly coloured headboard, that may just happen to correlate with the colour of the picture frames on the dresser. Here is your chance to showcase your favourite colour against a stately black and white backdrop.
Your black and white room is all ready for the texture and beauty of wood elements. Dark wooden furniture pieces create a handsome look. Rich tones in indoor flooring, moldings and trim present a polished finish. Engineered wooden flooring can bring the dramatic look without the hassle, but we’ll just leave it at that.
Newspapers may be black and white and read all over, but it’s your black and white room that’s the real story here.
