4 reasons to try black and white decoration at home

by Kate Oftring, REALTOR, GRI,SRES 05/22/2022

If you're searching for a bold and effective color scheme for your next interior design project, consider black and white decoration. While it may seem simple or even dull, the combination of black and white can create dynamic and beautiful indoor spaces. Here are some reasons black and white decoration might be right for you:

It works with any other color palette

Black and white are an incredibly versatile pair. You can mix black and white decoration with practically any other color, either as accents or major elements. You can brighten up a black and white room with pops of bold yellow and red, or add softer neutrals like mossy green or brown. The possibilities are virtually endless when you use black and white as a starting point for your design.

It's timeless

Black and white are not trendy colors--they never go out of style. Because of this, you can feel confident in investing in larger furniture pieces in black or white. While other facets of style may change, your black and white decorations and furnishings will last a lifetime of interior design.

It can be bold or subtle

You can use black and white decoration both to create subtlety and to make bold statements in your design. While the blank canvas of a white wall might seem intimidating, decorating a white-painted room with additional white décor can make any room seem larger and more open. Adding black into the mix will help you find focal points and add drama.

It's easy to find great pieces

Luckily, due to the enduring popularity of black and white in interior design, it's easy to find great pieces for your home. Black and white are always in style and widely considered a standby neutral for décor. Instead of struggling to find furnishings fitting the latest trend or more obscure color palette, you can rest assured there will always be a wide variety of black and white options on the market.
