Day 102: Black and White!

Day 102 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!

Black and white together are never out of style.  It is always crisp, chic and timeless.  Think of adding some black and white to a room in your house and watch it come alive!  Here are a few photos for inspiration...

This room is simple, believe it or not!  Simple white shelves are the perfect backdrop to objects of art.  The black glossy floor reflects the shelves and art.

This is easy to do.  Often the door is painted the same color as the trim.  Here it is the opposite.  Results are stunning!

Love this small bathroom.  The shower is all glass but the steel frame makes it look vintage and industrial.  The black basket weave tile looks great next to the marble subway tile.

There is a lot happening in this bath.  I might just do the floor or the black subway tile.  Classic!

On a budget?  Stock black and white ceramic tiles give a lot of bang for the buck!

Nice mix of black and white.  I like that the island is black and the rest of the cabinetry is white. Very refreshing.

You can even bring the classic look to the patio.
