I don't think I could ever tire of the clean look of black and white. I especially love the clean, modern lines and lacquer finishes in these two spaces.
The cute, rustic kitchens are definitely popular these days, but today I am craving something fresh and bright to greet me in the mornings, like this one. The white is like a burst of sunshine and a skip in your step! The glistening black table is the perfect accompanying piece to help hold down the space and ground it from getting too airy.
I'm not sure which room of the house this is (a bedroom? a living room?), but the serenity of it is calling my name. The wall of storage, the pretty chair, the darling console, and vintage pictures, make it inviting and warm, despite the cold finishes and modernity. Plus, isn't the addition of taupe and brass into the black & white color scheme the perfect touch?!
