Black, White, & Wood...

Right now I'm drawn to the crisp contrast of black and white. However it can be void of warmth
if it's not mixed with a neutral or some color. The warmth of wood can make this color color pallet go from high contrast to an almost grounded space by adding the element of a natural and organic.
Contemporary art mixed with a vintage chandelier instantly works with warmth of wood.

What looks like a very traditional space below could look a little stark if it had another 
element other than the wood table. For some reason the wood brings it all together.

Entry.  Stairs.

The photo below is stunning. Can you imagine what this space
would look like without the warmth of wood?

I love the strong statement the chairs bring into the space, along with the high contrast
of black and white.
The wood floor quietly anchors the room while adding warmth
at the same time.
Divine....

What are you drawn to lately?

      I fall hard for black and white check floor too. Always have, and more than likely always will...

  4. Good point about the wood. Gorgeous photos. Notice that there is usually some live greenery, too?

  5. Hi Mary Ann,
    I didn't notice because I was so caught up in the warmth of the wood. Now that you point it out.....of course.
    Thanks for stopping in today!

  6. I love that black and white abstract in the first picture... I'm trying to play Picasso and create one similar right now, and this will be very inspirational!
