Black and White: Dynamic Duo Adds Drama to Your Decor

Don't underestimate the statement that black and white can make in your home decor. This dynamic color duo can be simple and chic or stylishly over the top. We love how easy these home accessories can help you achieve a black-and-white theme.

This geometric wallpaper is graphic and ultramod. We found "Christian Classic" at Graham Brown ( Bold patterned wall papers are becoming popular again. They are better than ever, easier to apply and more durable.

If you are thinking about a graphic wall paper like the one above, complement it with other accents that are clean, simple and more subtly patterned. For example, an inexpensive black dome lamp ( like this one adds a soft glow to your room. This will work perfectly in a black and white theme.

Not sure about plastering up a bold black and white wall paper? There are other options. These hopscotch grommet drapes ( make a great accent when hung against neutral walls in tandem with smaller black-and-white accessories. Just as you might only wall paper a single wall, hanging a drape like this over a single window or doorway may be enough to punch up your black and white theme.

Finally, decorating with black and white doesn't have to be entirely black and white. If you find black and white too stark, look for accents that combine classic black with softer off-white or cream tones. You get the beauty of clean contrasting lines plus the flexibility to work with your off-white accessories. Have you ever noticed how pure white throw pillows on an off-white sofa will make the sofa look dirty. Pillows like these fun,  bold floral throw pillows from Pillow Decor ( can solve that problem. This black and off-white floral pattern pillow will work beautifully on that cream or off-white sofa.
