Decorating Ideas: Black and White Home Decor

Standout Design With Black And White Home Decor 

If only everything were as simple and elegant as the pairing of black and white. Together, when used in accent pieces within your décor, this power pair adds a fresh, modern style without feeling overwhelming. Separately they are both neutral colors, so they complement just about any color scheme when added into a room. Black and white home decor is a study in contrast. The idea is less about making everything black and white, and more about accessorizing to add a fresh impact to your space.

Black Cabinet

Fresh Look

In an otherwise neutral space, try adding a black cabinet. The contrast looks refreshing and contrasts nicely within a relatively blank canvas. In your kitchen, try adding a bold striped floor runner along a long counter. Black and white bedding is a winning combination for a designer inspired bedroom. Gorgeous!

You can also pair black and white with bold colors. When you’ve turned up the color volume in one of your room’s elements, the boldness of black and white can be the perfect foil. A bold fuchsia side chair looks right at home with an equally bold black and white striped rug. A vibrant aqua bed covering will benefit from a black and white zebra-print throw and matching decorative pillows.


The Little Black Accessory

Just like a little black dress can be your go-to outfit for any occasion, the same goes for the little black accessory. Case in point – hang a classic black mirror above a hallway console table, or switch out your bedroom’s mirror with one that features an ornate vintage frame. It always looks sharp and adds a bit of dramatic flair.

Black Corner Desk

Study Break

Add a corner desk to any room with space challenges. A black one will blend in quietly fill the space. A white one will lighten up the corner and match beautifully within a room that features a lighter color palette.

Inspirational Wall Decor

Wall Accents

Look at how you can add inspirational wall décor in shades of black and white to any room. Their neutral aspect makes them perfect candidates for your wall space. Hang your favorite words of wisdom as part of a wall art collage in your living room for a smart and elegant look.


The Right Ingredients

Black and white kitchen accessories look right at home on your kitchen countertops. Cluster a set of vintage canisters to add charm while keeping essentials handy. Complement them with black and white kitchen linens and a mat in front of the kitchen sink.
