The versatility of black and white makes it a classic design combination, as it can be mixed with so many trends that come and go. Black and white is such a favorable design, as the proportions of the colors are endless. When thinking of the proportions for black and white, it’s key to remember that it depends on your preference, the light sources that are available in the chosen room, and the function of the room.
Black can absorb light and make a room look smaller, so always try to include reflective surfaces to the room, such as glass or mirrors.
If your room is predominately black and white, bring in a statement piece, like a rug, so that it does not over power the design of the room.
Keeping it to one statement piece is ideal if it is a larger piece; however, several small, bright artifacts work great as well.
