Design Trends: Black and White

The black and white color combo is often associated with clean lines, simplicity, and sophistication. Black and white pair well together in spaces, but can sometimes come off too stark and boring. When composing a palette of black and white monochrome, it’s important to mix in a few complimentary patterns to keep the space interesting. Symmetry in furniture or object arrangement helps to keep it grounded. To keep the room from seeing too cold and uninviting, use some plusher, more inviting fabrics like velvet, knits, wool, and faux furs.
