The Glamorous look of Black and White Room Designs!

Black and White living room

The use of Black and White in design can create a stunning and dramatic decor.

There's a rule in decorating that says that "every room can use a touch of black." You might think this is strange if you have a room of pastels or jewel tones.  But using the color black adds a focal point of color that grounds, anchors, and adds a sophisticated look to a room.

Black in accessories, light fixtures, trims, paint, or in one bold piece of furniture will help to catch the eye and sharpen any decorating scheme. It will serve as an outline that sets off specific areas or objects. Black by itself is striking!

But to get real drama and spark, pair black with white.

The use of black and white in design gives a fresh, clean, and unquestionably sophisticated and elegant look to any room.

If you're afraid of using just black and white, add variety by adding areas of yellow, pink, camel, red, turquoise or purple for a striking look. Keeping black and white prominent, however, preserves the elegant effect.

Here are examples of stunning rooms designed with a Black and White theme.

Many shades of Blue!

Elle Decor

Blue brings to mind a beautiful sky in summer and the calmness of a still turquoise sea.

Its coolness helps people relax and take life at a more leisurely pace.

Blue is one of the easiest colors to decorate with. Blue will appeal to a wide range of people because it is a calm and relaxing color.

In Feng Shui, blue corresponds to the water element. This element connects to flowing water, so if you place a water feature in a water room, you are balancing the existing  energies there. Water is a support for the career area of your home. Water is also a also seen as a positive activator that can help accumulate wealth, increasing your prosperity, as it is always moving positive Chi energy around the home.

Blue is a soothing color. Emotionally, it can help release tensions and help you unwind.

You might not want to use Blue in an already cold space, because it will tend to cool a room even more. You also may not want to use it in a room without much natural light as darker shades of blue can sometimes feel depressing and gloomy.

Blue accommodates  very well with Browns as this color is much warmer and balances the coolness of the blue creating a better balance. Blue and Brown make a perfect color combination for a sophisticated office or living room design.

White is also a good color to use with Blue. It will give a very fresh and clean look to any room. You think summer house holidays with this refreshing combination of colors…

Ever wondered how many shades of blue existed?

Well...there are many... some of the most used are: Azure blue, Indigo blue, Cyan blue, Turquoise blue, Teal blue, Navy blue, Sapphire blue, Steel Blue, Midnight Blue, Ultramarine blue, Baby blue...
