The Beauty of Seeing the World in Black and White

Do you love the look of Global Style Design? Do you love the rich colors, exotic designs, hand-made works of art that bring the beauty of different cultures to life in your space?

Guess what? You can still get the beauty of all those global styles in black and white.

The Beauty of Seeing the World in Black and White

An easy way to get the look of any Global Style is with a beautiful rug, and then add some great Global Style pillows for accents.

Allow the rug to become the focal point for your room and guide the color scheme and your choices for accents and accessories such as throw pillows, art, lighting, and more.

A great way to get started is to work with black and white rugs and pillows. Then you can continue with the black and white theme throughout the room or add pops of color with your wall color, lighting, or other accents.

Because black and white are so neutral, they can work with just about any other color accents you choose and will highlight the beauty of those colors by contrast.

Examples of Global Styles Inspired by Black and White Rugs

Here are a few examples using Edesigns I created primarily in black and white. In the living room below, my inspiration was the beautiful black and white rug. I built the rest of the color palette and accessories around it and used red as my additional color. Learn more.

All Blacks and Whites are Not the Same

Remember, blacks and whites are actually either extremely saturated or unsaturated hues or colors, so all blacks and whites will look different.   

When putting together a black and white themed room, it would be wise to have a color strategist measure your colors to make sure the blacks and whites you want to use will work together nicely.

Although there is a general rule in Interior Design that all “blues” work together or all hues in the same family work together, that is not always true. One white for example, if too close in values to another can make one look “dirty”. It is important to make selections that play well together.
