Trend Alert: Black and White is Going Strong

October 18, 2017

Written by: Ashley Baker


The black-and-white trend is going strong, and this high-contrast design direction is amping up the style of so many of today’s chic rooms, including many of those showcased in the pages of our latest issue. From head-turning wallpaper to boldly patterned planters, there are countless ways to deliver the drama of black-and-white decorating into your home. 

Here are a few simple ways you can incorporate it into your décor.


Create an Accent Wall Using Black-and-White Wallpaper

We’re loving Pampa by Pierre Frey because it’s a twist on toille with a desert motif—loving that. This wallpaper also hits on the high-contrast, black-and-white trend, which we’re all obsessed with right now, as well as our passion for unique wallpaper.


Combine Black-and-White Patterned Accessories

The patterns of each of these pieces play off of one another and add just the right amount of high contrast to any room.
