Who doesn’t love the classic combination of black and white?  Timeless and classy, black and white bring a punch to a room like nothing else.  And the best part is that you can add touches of your favorite color to completely change the look like this living space that has a warm neutral color added to calm it down.

In this space the designer punched up the drama with black walls that visually disappear behind the white upholstery.  Pops of red add to the bold look.

The best feature in this room are the black painted over sized windows that showcase the height of the room, while drawing you into the space.  White and red upholstery add to the drama while the white drapes and walls help soothe the living space.
