Interior Design Color Schemes: Black and White

Black and white is a timeless combination. The best way to evoke the past, to “keep it simple.” Uncluttered. Comfortable. Chic, contemporary sophistication that is age neutral and open to accents of color. Stripes, or checkered patterns, white walls, table tops and bookshelves, contrast with black sofas, rugs, or lamps. It is a non-interfering color scheme that usually works with one or two accent pieces perfectly to bring out that edge to space. Below you can check some great examples of black and white interior design color schemes selected by Design Build Ideas team that you will love.
