    Simple drama

    While I may flirt with colour from time to time, I can never stop myself from being drawn right in to a classic case of 'black and white done right'. Rustic ceiling beams and a rather primitive looking coffee table look sophisticated in a high contrast black and white frame.

    beautiful space!


    Like the black pained mullions, great image!


    Love the lamps and the knitted ottoman.


    Me too! I always find myself going "wow" when I see a good black and white anything.
    Those French doors are beautiful.

    works well I like the light fixtures, definitely a focal point of the room thanks for thes epictures, inspired me to make a black and white themed room using mydeco's 3D room builder thanks! If I can I'll post the link here when it's done.


    i'm the same way... i can't help but love black & white done right! before i was married, i always wanted crazy color everywhere but my husband got me into the modern/simple look and i have to admit, it can look really clean, cool, and classic all at the same time! thanks for sharing these ideas! to match the rustic beams and coffee table, i would balance that with some "worn" looking hardwood
    .. what do you think?
