Life is not Black & White

But black and white decor can look pretty good from time to time!  Apparently the contrast of black and white is super hot right now.  Some good, some bad.  Personally I couldn't live in a space that's just black and white.  This girl needs some color but let's explore, shall we?

I've always loved this entry way by Rob Southern.  The high gloss walls are stunning. 

Robert Couturier designed this living room.  The room dividers are really cool but I don't think I could live in a room like this. 

WOW. That's quite a wild backsplash.  Black and White. Chevron. Trend alert. By Anne Marie Midy. 

This is monochromatic but I love all the textures: Furs, woods, twigs. Love it. 

I am obsessed with what this painting might be.  Also, the shades of black, white and grey add many layers to this cool but comfortable looking moment. 
So yeah, theres my view on Black and White interiors.  I think the way to accomplish a successful one is to make sure it has many layers, and textures are key.  Add a little fur in there, some raw unfinished woods, and a high gloss piece of furniture or painted walls.  Or just add a splash of color and go crazy with it!
