Black and White All Over

Black and White

Oh, black and white… This classic and clean color combo is having a major moment in the  fashion realm right now. The Spring 2014 runway shows were practically bursting with this bold, graphic look. Motifs ranged from head-to-toe fragmented geometrics to bold awning stripes to a more simplified dip-dyed look. It was so refreshing to see that this trend is coming our way for Spring that I so badly want to incorporate it into my home now! It can be so fun to be ahead of the trend.

Black and White Rugs

The black and white trend is ever-so easily translated into home decor. This striking combo is graphic in nature, so a typographic pillow is an obvious choice to add atop your sofa. Think of it as the graphic tee of home decor! Black and white also sets the perfect stage for most furniture picks. These two rugs are excellent examples–the over-sized awning stripe on the left feels modern, yet neutral, while the rug on the right feels more contemporary and lighter in color balance. Either one would merge easily into most homes, while lending a bit of a trend-forward flair. Lastly, don’t forget a good animal print! This patchworked pillow combines two great home decor accents: black and white and animal. However you decide to rock this trend within your home, it’s a safe bet that it’s here to stay.
