It's All Black & White

There's something about black and white paired together. It's can be classic, elegant, edgy, retro- it all depends on the shapes, lines and dosage of each color in the room. I also happen to love a black and white photograph.  Is it just me, or do black and white pictures just seem more authentic and moment-savoring?! {Yes, I just made that phrase up:)}

I happen to love these interiors and think that even though there's barely any color, the rooms have enough interest through pattern and shapes.  Don't get me wrong, I still love me some color, but these black and white rooms are also making me swoon :) I was once told that "every room needs a touch of black to ground the space" and I think I'm definitely on that train.  Even if it's a just a tiny little touch, there's something to be said for that dark, grounding color. 


What's your favorite room from these images?
Happy Wednesday! {Back next week with our regularly scheduled program. She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not took a week off :) The next link up party for She Loves Me will be April 18th!}
Love,

  1. my favorite is the first- i love that it is black and white but not glammed up and still casual and almost beachy feeling.

  4. Oooh, I love that second to last bedroom! That's so stunning how the only black wall is right against the bed, and the rest looks like it's white...plus I love those monogrammed pillows! Definitely pinning this one as an example of balancing masculine and feminine (I think I'm going to have a hard time relinquishing my girl cave-like bedroom someday so I try to pin inspiration haha!) xoxo

  6. I just love the black table with the gallery wall. Those worn medium tone floors are my favorite. Love me some black and white. Especially with a pop of fresh flowers. And I think every room should have one black piece to ground it. Makes such a difference. Have a great day!

  9. I agree - even if you love white, it looks whiter with a little black next to it!
    Kinda like how salt makes chocolate taste more chocolately....or is that just me..

  12. I LOVE the chevron on the entry way wall. I saw that photo before we moved into our new apartment and I tried to do something similar for an accent wall in our kitchen...it's my favorite spot in the apartment now! :)
    Very cute picks!
