A Sure Thing

Color schemes come in and they go out.  Experts in the industry make predictions for the upcoming hot trendy colors of the year.
But, just as it is with the 5 fashion basics, there is one color scheme that never goes out of style.....

BLACK AND WHITE

Whether it's in the bedroom...
the living room.....


the kitchen....
or the bathroom,
It's always perfection.

You can dress it up....
Or dress it down....
Either way, it's beautiful and timeless.

And just as with fashion, you can throw in any accent color your heart desires and pull it off.
It doesn't matter what you are seeking in the way of inspiration, there it will be on Pinterest. 
You can find all of these photos, along with the sources,
on my "Black and White" Pinterest pinboard. 

What's inspiring you today?...

I love black and white too. I have used it in my kitchen and a few other areas of my home. I love it mixed with country accents and furnishings. Love that living room you showed with the large mirror over the fireplace.

I whole heartedly agree! I think color is such an individual thing...different colors resonate with different people and I get tired of all the marketing hype of the "color of the year" and this comes from an Interior Designer.
Great post!

Great post Laurieanna. I base not only my decorating, but my wardrobe around this combination. I love colour too, but it is always the accent or accessorie.

Yes...definitely black & white are wonderful standards. You've proven that in your posts over & over. Lovely! xo
