Black and white is a very celebrated contemporary design trend. Black and White is classic and classy!
A Black and White design can also be called a Yin and Yang Design. Yin & Yang are these two opposite natural forces such as day and night, hot and cold, sun and a moon which both need to exist... In the Tai Chi Yin & Yang symbol, both sides come together as one to create balance. I believe that Black and White are these two colors which by their very essence create a positive and a negative, a mat and a shiny and a hard and soft look and come together elegantly to create harmony in a space.
Many designers have created amazing, sophisticated and timeless designs just using these two colors. Let's discover some fabulous examples together...
Above, a very chic contemporary black white style home design photographed by Moris Moreno. Lots of great contrasts, with soft and hard surfaces as well as mat and glossy objects. Also, the introduction of natural elements such as wood sticks, flower, the horses paint really ties everything together harmoniously.
This black-and-white duo is both flirty and sophisticated! Two floor-length mirrors complement the black wood-framed bed and highlight two glass chandeliers. Above the bed, three floating shelves allow for space to display photographs or other favorite accessories.
Here you can see a glimpse of Nicky Hilton’s 1950/ Rockn'roll LA home decor which she has arranged herself with the help of her designer grand mother. One of my favorites... She has also found this vintage Chanel serving tray. What an amazing find! So Stylish! - Instyle Magazine
The home of Anna Sui, fashion designer is also full of sophistication! Her elegant powder room features a black lacquered vanity with matching framed mirror, white subway tiles and cashmere style wallpaper.
