Black signifies strength. White stands for softness. And the combination of both is exemplary.
It is then hard to understand why many of us  not even consider them as 'colours'. Infact, many a times, things in black and white bring out the best.

No matter how we bland we consider the combination, when done in perfect proportion, the charm can defeat the vibrance so called 'colours'.

To know how your home would look in black and white, read on.

Living Room:

A living room ought to be lively. While it is well known to everyone that generous use of various colours can accomplish that to a certain extent, what black and white can do is little known.

The living room shown here clarifies the myth that black and white is a boring combination.
The L shaped white sofa with black and metallic cushions coupled with a black and white ottoman coffee table gives a decent accent to the room. To give depth to the scene, the walls are painted in metallic shade of brown.

Another element that can go black and white is the photo frames.
A room dominated by red gets a befitting colour combination with black and white. The way the frames have been arranged at the corner, also contributes to contemporary look of the room.


Even if you see  no space left to add something of your favourite black and white combination, there is always room for one thing. The stairs. Stairs are something we provide space for.
So why not do them in black and white instead?

Floors and ceilings:
