When some people hear the word “neutral” in relation to decorating, they often think this means a color palette that is bland and dull. Neutrals can be anything but when done correctly, but a surefire way to capture a bold, chic look is to go with a neutral pairing that is often forgotten even falls into this category: black and white.
The stark contrast of black and white instantly offers the opportunity for a dramatic look. You never have to worry about it going out of style, as its as timeless as they come, and it can suit a variety of different tastes. I especially love black and white bedrooms. There is an innate luxury to this combo that works wonderfully in this space. It can be as relaxed or glamorous as you’d like.
