High Contrast

I've always been drawn to the look of black and white high contrast. It's so crisp, clean, and has such a luxurious feel. I love how you can go super bold with patterns and geometric shapes, or you can stay more calming and simple. The great thing is that any pop of color you want to throw in there works!

I think black and white will always be a staple in my house!

Are you a fan or is it too plain?

Definitely! I'm totally on the same page when it comes to high contrast! I have just repainted our kitchen and dining in a off-white colour with glossy black cupboards and a black chalkboard feature wall. I am pushing for glossy black floors in the kitchen but everyone who's been helping us thinks I'm crazy to want black floors. They say it shows dirt easily. I say bring it on - I'll keep it clean.

All the images in this post are absolutely GORGEOUS. Thanks for such beauty on a Thursday morning!
