Hello, my name is Lesley and I have a confession - I'm obsessed with black and white home decor. I've been in love with zebra prints since my wild days as a teenager with a zebra bedspread and lime green walls. Bold black and white damask prints excite me. Heck, even the color scheme for my own wedding was black and white! So instead of denying this integral part of who I am (because if you know me, it's really quite easy to spot!) I thought I'd share some of the products and spaces that have been fueling my two-toned passion.
In a bedroom, a gallery-style wall in monochromatic black and white makes a bold design statement. I've complemented this artful display wall with an elegant mirrored chest, a sleek black table lamp, and a fantastic retro wall clock.
Living room accent chairs are a great place to make a statement - a smaller commitment than a sofa, a graphic side chair can bring a punch to a dull seating area. If you're feeling wild try a bold chevron print; if subtlety is more your speed, a sophisticated faux leather accent chair might do the trick.
And in my opinion, a zebra rug is never wrong. (Even if it's wrong, I don't want to be right!)
What's your take on black and white home decor? Love it or hate it?
