Black and White are Back!

I’ve been out in the stores for the past week between appointments looking for new inventory going into the Spring real estate and staging season. I was really surprised to see so much black and white everywhere! It is back as a popular choice in upholstery, bedding, linens and accent pieces.

The new interpretation of this classic decorating theme is in large, graphic prints. One application in particular that I saw over and over, is the “statement” chair with a large scale black and white damask fabric. These pieces will look absolutely stunning and elegant in a living room, home office or the bedroom.

The best part of the whole black and white theme is that you can really dress it up with any colour that you want. At GreenApple, we’re kind of fond of black and white and green :-), but it’s just as easy to pair the combo with some juicy citrus colours, pink, teal (it’s back, too!) or the all-time classic, red.

I was also loving the black and white bed linens. Again, a very elegant look for a master bedroom . . . or totally fun for a kid’s room.

If you’re looking to change up a room in your house, consider this great duo! When else can you be right on trend with such a timeless design?!
