Deciding on the color is one of the designing phases that need to be thought of when planning your interior. Do you want something colorful, natural or maybe something bold? Black and white can give you a bold look that will always be hip and works well in most interiors. Why most interiors? The reason is that you need enough natural light entering the room otherwise the black pieces will overpower the area. Let’s look at some areas that we can use this color scheme with the help from Decor8.
Although this style isn’t common for the living room,it still works to bring a sense of sophistication and elegance to the room. Here we use an obvious contrast between the two colors to highlight a specific area. Here we have a Swindon Contemporary Sofa that was added to define the seating area of the room, whilst an exotic Black and White Cowhide is laid in from for some interesting patterns.
Color schemes tend to change with the times but black and white makes a safe alternative that will be perfect for many years to come.
Let’s finish this style with a Brooklyn Coffee Table for an area to place items on when needed.
A great way to style your lounging area is by keeping light to light and dark to dark. What do we mean by this? Notice that the Panthella Table Lamp is paired with a white Leitmotiv Tritable Side Table. No matter the time of day or night this area will be lit up. Again this is the area that will be highlighted the most in this setting giving you a great conversational starter.
Adding a comfy Womb Chair and a Hexagon Coffee Table, gives you a nice black tie affair with a bit of elegance in the chrome finish frame of the chair.
The sparkle of the chrome gives this style plenty of class and will make it a style to be adored by many.
Black and white is nothing special on its own so we need to add items that will pop. Something artistic with a unique design works great. In this setting we have some amazingly stylish items with a fun exterior added into the room. Those are the Imperial Drum Stool to give it that Asian oriental flair, a contemporary Reed umbrella Stand, and a fluffy EOS Table Lamp.
Top all this up with a nice sturdy Woodrow Desk for a strong work surface for those long hours at the desk. Perfect item whether you are completing an assignment, finishing an important report or presentation, or even cramming some study notes for a big test coming up.
In this dining room setting, we put more emphasis on the DSR Style Chairs around the table. This will highlight the seating area giving it more attention.
Keeping lighting brightly lit is important in this setting. Sometimes one lighting over the dinner table just isn’t enough. A way to get around this is by adding a series of lighting in line with each other.
This is where the Acorn Lamps make their debut. These small lamps look brilliantly wonderful when placed in this arrangement but don’t be afraid to vary the heights if you wish.
The main thing to remember is to keep it simple and use the contrast to highlight the area you want to add focus to. Tell us what you think and don’t be afraid to share your ideas with us.
