Design Strategies: How to achieve a black and white interior with a splash of color!

Posted on Feb 20, 2016 in Blog


The apple green lacquered tray adds just the right punch of color to this black and white tablescape!

Here is a powerful mix of pattern!  I love how the vivid chartreuse pops the black and white graphic design on the square pillow.  The stripe on the rectangular accent pillow comes to life when paired with the colorful green hue.  I find it interesting how the right mix of pillows can bring a neutral interior to a high style statement in seconds!

Green not your top choice of color?  Try accenting in red, as featured above.  When designing with black and white color schemes, I feel bold splashes of color are a fun way to accent.  Other colorways that pair well with black and white palettes are bright yellow, hot pink, and turquoise.
