We have often talked about color in our articles. Psychology, new trends, the right combinations for our homes and the influences they have on our mood.
But today we want to talk of the color-combo par excellence: black and white. So let’s talk about some great black and white interiors ideas
Elegant, classy and always up-to-date, the interiors with black and white palettes are timeless. However, especially in this case, balance and harmony are fundamental. In fact, black and white are the two opposite colors par excellence. On the one hand purity, brightness, positivity, on the other hand the mystery, the shadow and the negation. But together, white and black manage to create welcoming and classy environments.
This choice of colors is not for everyone. Black is often scary, and we tend to exclude it because it is too strong. But if the areas of the house are bright and the spaces are large, black creates unique effects.
But let’s see some examples of the use of this combination in the different rooms of the house.
