Black and white decor gives any living room dramatic elegance. The two are opposite in every way, yet perfectly balance each other so your living room isn't too dark or too clinical. While black warms the room and creates an intimate feeling, white lightens things up and creates a sense of spaciousness. Used in proper proportions, they play off each other beautifully for plenty of interest packed into the simple color palette.
Create a gallery of images on one wall by combining black and white photographs and prints. Using white matting and simple black frames keep it from looking cluttered. You can use subdued colors elsewhere so the focus remains the gallery wall. When you have an impressive piece like this ornately framed mirror and door, keep the furniture and rugs simple to avoid too many competing elements.
Dramatic artwork can be the jumping-off point for an entire living room. Although there are only three colors in the oversized, post-modern art above this simple, marble fireplace, the white, black, and the caramel spot are used repeatedly throughout the space to create a cohesive style. For texture interest, place a Bauhaus style table like this one on a rustic, informal rug that blends all the room's colors into one gorgeous, earthy palette.
It can be challenging to use black and white living room ideas because the palette can be limiting. By judiciously using the right accents and layering interesting features for depth and warmth, you can create a sophisticated black and white living room that retains an inviting atmosphere. Remember to balance the amount of each color so one doesn't outshine the other.
