If everything isn’t black and white, I say, ‘Why the hell not?’
— John Wayne

There is no new black! Sun or shade, winter or summer, we always come back to black. The color of coal, ebony, and of outer space, of secrets, magic, power and elegance. The complete absence of color, yet all colors combined. Equal in purity and elegance, only to its counterpart, white, which when displayed in contrast to one another inhibit the ultimate balance.

While I have always loved black, it has mostly been the dominant color of my wardrobe and used in small doses in my interior spaces. Last week I painted my first room black, and while I intend to keep the rest of my walls white, I am in love with my new black entrance way with bright white doors and trim paired with lovely copper and wooden details. A before/after feature will be posted later this week, so stay tuned!

We have also updated our tumblr mood with a beautiful collection blacks and whites for you to feast your eyes on.

Have a balanced and beautiful Monday!
