If you have been following emeralDesign on Pinterest lately you will know I have been obsessing over dark interiors, especially Black and White. The is something so timeless, simple and calming about the familiar color combo. The beauty of the two colors is it can also be used in a number of design styles from modern to traditional to even an art deco inspired scheme. Take a loot at some of my favorite finds.
This bathroom is a perfect example of the drama Black and White color schemes can bring to a room. The contrast of the black elements against the white create so much interest in the vertical & horizontal lines.
I kind of feel like I cheated on this one. Let's face it, it's not pure Black and White - but it is a monochromatic color scheme (using once color in varying shades, i.e. Black). Using black and white in varying tones creates a more comfortable, relaxed feel. It is especially effective with all the different textures and materials that are used to bring the space together.
Now it is time to swoon over these lovely exteriors. Your eye is automatically drawn to them, whether it be the whole facade or just a glossy black door it instantly makes you look.
Taking a look at something new is always inspiring! Happy October!
