Crisp & Clean, Black & White

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?!

I have been completely crushing on brass/gold lately. The hint of warmth really makes a sparse modern interior design feel a bit more cosy.

Great post!

Wow, i love the clean line! Black and white always make quite a pair, don't they?

I think that black table, white chairs, are just perfect. And those storage wall, are just so massive and inviting.

Oh yes Crystal, i am currently hosting a giveaway together with cookware.com, perhaps you might like to check it out too!

I so hope the 2nd one is a closet! Can you imagine all the shoes it would hold?!? Great post as always!!

I want that second one to be a bedroom. I can imagine the bed dressed in a fluffy steely blue colored down comforter with bronzy salmon colored accents.

I love black and white. Classic.

That kitchen is amazing! The cabinets are so chic, yet classic. It's one of the only kitchens I have seen in a long time that have truly "wowed" me...also, that cabinetry in the second is enviable! Perhaps a dressing room?

Hope you're having a lovely week so far, Crystal :)
