Just because you’re decorating in black and white doesn’t mean you can’t hide a splash of color somewhere in the design. Consider a white sectional, chaise and cocktail table, paired with gold wall art or a tinted glass floor lamp. On a reclaimed elm or cast iron coffee table, you could add that color in the form of a potted plant. As always when styling with black and white, make sure the color is subtle, not bold.
When you want to play with texture, look first at the material. Leather, wood, fabric, metal or faux fur would all impart something different to your design. Start with a white leather loveseat and two metal chairs, and pair them with a cozy black throw blanket or rug. Next, add pattern and details with statement accent pillows, such as ones with black/ivory patterns in chevron or geometric shapes, or coralline black tassels.
Drawing up a simple floorplan of your space is the first step to knowing how much furniture you’ll need. Then, measuring out and taping your new layout will help you see what will work in your space. You’ll be able to easily pinpoint holes where you need to add new furniture.
