I believe the reason a simple black and white color palette remains popular is it works so well for a variety of styles: boho, modern, vintage, farmhouse, minimalist – the list goes on. Adding some black and white flair to your existing color motif is also easy to accomplish with just a few items.
Black and white décor items typically add a focal point and a bit of savoir faire to a room. There’s a classic interior design thought that every room needs a touch of black, no matter the other tones in the space.
We’re getting closer to the holidays, which may mean entertaining friends and family. Let me demonstrate how the addition of a few items help create a sophisticated, minimal boho vibe. We’ll add some pieces to your entryway through to the living space and into the dining area, as those are the rooms your guests will spend the most time.
Set the tone right away with artwork that has clean lines such as these Flower Market Botanical Prints. The simple black etching of flowers on a creamy white background is eye-catching and the prints look great in natural-toned frames, too. And if you really want a pop of color in the space, consider using a frame.
If you have floating shelves, a small desk or a console table in your entryway, this Matte Black Pillar Holder is striking. It’s perfect for a large white candle. Faux flowers and greenery are always in season, too, so get creative by using this Snow White Ranunculus. It adheres to our minimal style but is engaging, too.
Moving into the gathering space, I’ll explain how to utilize black and white to add some brightness to the room with lamps and candles. Again, whatever color scheme you currently have in the space will blend well with black and white décor items, trust me!
Now, many of us need to get rid of some clutter in the family living space when we entertain. These Natural Stripe Black Woven Basket 2 Sizes are perfect for hiding bits and bobs that you don’t want out in the open. Plus, they’re adorable and perfect for modern boho decorating.
I think you’ll love the design and shape of the Huck Black Matte Table Lamp and Huck Black Matte Floor Lamp, either one or both to bring some black and white class to the room, and light the space so everyone can admire your style. Ooh, the thin stem that transitions into such a cool shape - we love it!
Don’t forget your mantelscape, shelfscape and counterscape when creating black and white decor. The height and thin shape of this Revere Candlestick really stands out but doesn’t require a lot of space. Add a creamy candle atop for that perfect black and white touch.
And, as the chill enters the air, consider adding this cozy Avalon Stab Stitch Tassel Throw Black onto the back of the sofa or a chair. It’s warm, creamy and inviting, plus has some great black accents in the stitching and some fun, bold tassels, too.
Moving into the dining space, don’t feel like you have to change it up completely. A few well placed black and white additions make enough of a difference to freshen up an entire room.
These Callie Acacia Wood Black Cutting Boards have been a popular addition to the shop because they look great but are also functional. The same can be said for these Ember Black Stain Woodfire Trays, which work well in smaller spaces, such as a counterscape or shelfscape. They add some black and white charm to the dining room, kitchen or even a powder or guest room.
The takeaway is it doesn’t take an overhaul to give your rooms some fresh flavor. Choose a couple items to change things up a bit. You’ll appreciate the updated feel and your guests will be impressed that you’ve always got something new to admire.
