Black and white living room

The black and white color scheme is a classic that always works – I don’t know what colors to use – monochrome! This color scheme offers just the right amount of contrast and can be jazzed up with any other color or print – anything looks good with these basics. Today we’re taking a look at some chic black and white living rooms and ways to implement this color scheme. Let yourself be inspired!


There are many styles to choose from as black and white goes with almost anything you can think of: boho, contemporary, modern, minimalist, Scandinavian, sophisticated glamor and so on. Nordic and Scandinavian living rooms are most commonly seen in black and white, although you can go anywhere, even in farmhouses. You can also mix them to create a unique living room with its own character.

Figure out how much of each color you’ll be using: will it be a moody space, or one that’s airy and full of light? Dark rooms are very popular, especially elegant and sophisticated black living rooms, but you can always freshen up such a room with touches of white and cream. Light filled and airy rooms never go out of style, you can splash them a bit with black accents – accent walls, some furniture and accessories, pots and other things you want. More or less the same proportions of these two colors are sure to give you a particularly bold space. This is a bright space to stay in!

How to wind

Black and white may seem boring, but there are several easy ways to avoid neutral looks. The first idea is to add natural wood elements – stained furniture, tree stump stools and wooden benches. The second – and timeless option – is to freshen up the space with potted greens. Green is better for refreshing than flowers. Another way is adding metallics – lamps, chandeliers and even bed frames. Textiles can also be a great idea for adding texture to fur rugs, chic velvet curtains, fluffy and catchy pillows.
