4 Timeless Black and White Design Ideas 

 A black and white palette is a timeless classic with endless possibilities. No matter where you use it, it’s always safe because it’s neutral and can match almost any style. Plus, it’s chic, stylish, and simple. Some people use it to give their neutral space some contrast, while others use it to give their room that lux feeling. 

Whether you’re wanting a small update to your space or if you want a bold new look, here are 4 ways to use black and white in your home. 

  • Patterned Walls

When it comes to adding black and white to your walls, your options are virtually endless! Try a black-and-white wallpaper to create an accent wall, or use it in your home office or a small bathroom.

  • Play with Patterns

Think it’s impossible to add a fun, youthful vibe into your seemingly drab black and white room? Think again! Juxtaposing different patterns in a similar color palette is a surefire way to make a statement. Whether you prefer stripes, polka dots, or geometric shapes, this design trick is bound to give your room a welcoming and playful feel.


  • Use Gold Accents

Black and white is a classic combination for bathrooms. If you’re looking to add some style in this often-overlooked space, consider adding some gold accents to the mix! The Ammi gold metallic on black wallpaper from the Woodlands Resource Collection will look great with some gold-accented statement mirrors, light fixtures, gold accessories and other matching hardware.


  • Add a Splash of Color

Want to give your space a naturally soft, romantic look? Do you want to inject some fun into your room? Pair the dynamic duo of black and white with blush tones! The juxtaposition between your black and white wallpaper and soft pink shades will look really romantic and sophisticated. Gold yellow, fuchsia pink, and blue also go really well with black and white, and will add a pop of color into any room.

The classic black-and-white color combination makes any room — from bedrooms to bathrooms — chic, sophisticated, and timeless. Try these design ideas and give your space a new look!
