I am kind of on a black and white kick these days. I’m not sure why. Maybe it is because they are so neutral but so not. These colors are bold and pair perfectly with anything. ANYTHING! I have some favorites and some inspiring ways you can use them.
These are a few of my favorite black and white hues. Isn’t it amazing how 2 black paints or 2 white paints can look so different?

I love pairing bold colors with these simple blacks and whites. My favorite pairing right now is Kelly green with black and white. I typically don’t like green, but for some reason I just love this combo.

Aged brass looks spectacular with a black and white combo too! Light fixtures, cabinet pulls, anything with that mellowed gold tone looks fantastic.
You can amp up the fun factor with black and white because nothing is too bold. Rainbow stripes or bold graphic prints work well when placed against a solid white wall. Black accents anchor the fun colors.
Black and white also play well with beige to keep it calm and soothing.
I see a lot of black and white in my future!
