One of the hottest trends in interior design right now, is using 2 ends of the spectrum such as black and white. Black and white combination makes a modern, sophisticated and elegant combination of colors which can make your living room look absolutely stunning. Black and white combination can be dramatic, dynamic, modern, formal and is also the ideal background for adding other colors. This combination can actually blend equally well in interiors of all sorts of styles including art deco, hi tech, classic, among others. Black and white living room design generally accepts the presence of the other colors which means it gives you plenty of room to get creative and use your imagination.
One of the rules when creating a black and white living room is not to use the black and white colors in similar proportion; you need to choose 1 color which will dominate the design. The choice will depend entirely on your particular taste, and and what you wish to achieve as the final result.
The living room on our list showcases our point to perfection; it is visually appealing and sophisticated without a riot of color. The double height living room relies on black and white elements- and it works! The walls are a pristine white while the furniture is black. A patterned rug and pillows add dimension to the room, while black interspersed with neat white lines makes for a beautiful room.
This room incorporates shades of grey into its color palette. This room is relatively smaller, and the monochrome colors make it seem more spacious and homely. A black marble accent wall behind a modern fireplace is a unique twist on the classic chimney, while the expressive paintings on the wall make the room look interesting. The wooden floor subtly enhances the monochrome colors by being a bit of a contrast. The unique floor lamp you see here is Arco by Flos.
When your living room has a view such as this one, you don’t try and compete, you complement. This monochromatic haven is beautifully designed and understated in a way that is charmingly elegant. It does not detract from the view; rather it is a complement of the stunning natural beauty.
