Black & White - a Classic Combination

There is something to be said for the combination of black and white. Its a classic, tried and tested formula that, when used well, can energize a space and dial up its oomph factor. 

There is a certain sexiness associated with black & white. It can be almost beguiling at times. I think it has something to do with the fact that the two colors are so diametrically in contrast ,both visually as well as symbolically. The combination is powerful and yet there is also a strange simplicity to it.

Here are a few images of spaces which have used this most classic of combinations... Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful- you said it right - there is a strange relationship in these diametricially opposite colours.
    It is not that - we have not observed this combination in furnishings- but this thought never struck us!! Only a designer's eyes will be able to detect it- thanks Shalini - coming back for more such posts.

  2. Hi Viyoma, sorry for the late reply. I'm really glad that you liked the post.
