Black & White Decor

We recently had the pleasure of taking a peak into a home that was decorated exclusively in black and white. And to our surprise, it wasn't dull or boring at all. I'm a fan of black and white decor, but sometimes it seems so plain and lifeless. If it's not done right, the house ends up feeling sterile. Well, not this house!

With tons of texture, this living room is cozy, not sterile. Don't you love the mirror on the ottoman that is being used as a tray?

The dining area is inviting and serene. All of the plants in the space make the house feel full of life. Check out that mirror behind the table. Gorgeous, right?

The accessories aren't too stuffy. In fact, they all seemed to be things that could be found at a garage sale or thrift store. Note to self: Go to more garage sales.

Even the bedroom felt inviting. The paneling on the wall added more texture to the room. And the beautiful bench at the end of the bed is on my list of DIY projects.

What do you think about black and white decor? Boring or beautiful?


  1. I love it! Seriously. BUT if you have kids like me, it's a whole different story. I'd prefer the black or brown all over lol
