B&W

6.23.2010

While the summer usually has me wanting to lighten and brighten things up around my house... I have really been liking black and darker shades lately. Of course, I like it best when used with white. Love the contrast of the light and dark.

I agree...NEVER get sick of black and white. Or white with an almost black blue, aubergine, green.

Love. That fourth picture MIGHT be my fave interior shot of all time. I snapped a picture of that with my camera phone when I saw it in the mag for the first time. I was just in love and wanted to copy everything about that room.

You are liking black? I was surprised but after looking at these pictures I can see how it fits with you style. I love every single one!

I love black and white. It is a great combination that works well by itself or works well if you want to add a pop of color later. Thanks for the pics. Some of these are headed straight to my inspiration file :)
