The beauty is it’s the perfect backdrop for any accent color or great as is. The trick to pulling off this trend is to make sure you use texture, pattern, a variety of materials, and interesting shapes within the design.
Black and white decor is far from boring if done right. Today I’ll show you a living room design in this style.
