Black, White and Gray ~ High Drama


Black and White has always been an infallible
design and color combination. It's always made
for high drama when juxtaposed together.

This entrance is so cool with the jet black walls,
white stair railings and shiny black flooring.
Talk about dramatic and making an entrance!


Not the entire house is purely black and white
although the same kind of drama does flow through
house. The ornate wardrobe really makes the drama
in this room.



Black and white in this room is used for the accents rather
than the main colors. Shades of gray and white are used
instead.


Shelves in the black and white living room.


I love the pop of color from the art piece in
the dining room.



The office adds in dark chocolate brown
for the floors. Never quite seen chocolate
used with gray. It's an interesting combination.


The cowhide covered chair really makes
a statement in the living space.


Hello Shaggy rug :) Looks really soft.
The writing on the walls are a lot of fun.



The unexpedted chandelier is a brilliant stroke in this
very modern black and white kitchen.



A peek into the backyard that has a lovely
dining space for outdoor dinners and living.



Hope this post has provided more inspiration
for all of you black and white lovers out there.

Nice! The colours are really lovely, of course, very stylish - and the arrangment of objects on the shelf and over the bed is particularly inspiring. I love displays like these!
Wishing you very Happy Holidays, Karen!

I wouldn't want an office like that. Too messy.
