RL Picks: Top 8 Black-and-White Living Rooms
Living spaces defined by a chic and classic color scheme
Decorating the home can be a tricky process. In finding the perfect style for your personal space, it can be challenging to match furniture and home accessories. To make things easier, you can furnish your private sanctuary based on a particular color palette, like the timeless combination of black and white.
For a couple of design ideas, here are 8 black-and-white living rooms that range from the elegant and sophisticated to the fun and quirky:
In the living area, the plush white sofas and black leather stainless steel chairs are inviting enough for long periods of entertaining guests. Sliding doors in the living and dining areas open up to the lanai and a small garden.
The white sofas with dark wood armrests, black leather chairs in stainless steel frames, and the glass coffee table were all custom-made by CLT Gallerie Corp. Silver candleholders are from Rustan’s while the tall glass vase is from Play and Display.
