How to Create a Classic Black and White Space
One of the easiest ways to transform your space is with wall art. It sets the tone for the entire space, and is so simple to do with just a bit of guidance.
- Select a focal wall.
- Size for balance.
Select images that complement your existing color palette.
Select coordinating art pieces that continue the theme in other ways (without fighting for attention).
- Pull the dominant colors and shapes into the space with textiles and basic decor items like pillows, blankets and accessories
A few pillows and throw blankets.
Goal: Pull the shades of black, white and gray through the room to create balance and mimic the textural elements of the artwork.
A couple classic textures and shapes.
Think: Lines, both gently organic like the tree and dunes, and very rigid like the railings and wood in Wooden Pier.
Think: Green foliage with a gray undertone, like Chinese Evergreen, Silver Bay or Sansevieria Sayuri.
