6 snazzy black and white interior schemes

6 snazzy black and white interior schemes

Better known as #bnw the black and white color scheme has become a phenomenon of sorts. The very tangible aesthetic of such a scheme contains powerful visuals, and impactful and dynamic formation along with a elegance that is hard to achieve through other color schemes. Black and white interiors are both rich and austere at the same time, and that visual duology is one of the most coveted aspect of this color application in interiors. Today, we will be looking at several black and white interiors that embraces their snazzy aesthetic.

  1. An emphasis on the black

With most black and white interiors, one has to be very careful in doling out the right amount of black and white in strategic locations within the interior. Black has more visual weight than white, so the end result can be drastically altered if even a single counterpart is misplaced. In the interior below however, black has been used quite generously around the space – especially on the walls and furniture – but the weight of it has been balanced out by using white in the floor and ceiling exclusively.

  1. Single wall monochrome

This kitchen has been designed in a single wall formation, which means the other end is either open or indefinitely closed off. The designers have therefore, pulled off the entire black formation in matt black on completely one side while balancing it out with the white in all the rest.

  1. Shades of grey

Sometimes, a monochrome interior scheme has very strategic shades of grey implanted in between the black and white. This creates an impartial visual dynamic in the space without breaking the tradition of monochrome. In the image below, all the shades of grey complement the easy black and white of the overall scheme.

  1. On the wall

Once again, this interior used the walls and furniture as canvas for black while using the floor and ceiling as its inherent white counterpart. This makes for a very basic formula, which never fails.

  1. With a bit of contrast

The image below showcases a hybrid black and white interior with a single contrasting piece in the entire mix. The red color of the shelf provides a uniquely dynamic visual inconsistency that breaks the overall monotony of the interior. The uncanny pop of the bright red infuses an unbridled charisma within the interior.

  1. Cornered in

This monochrome nook has been designed to emulate the best of a black and white interior formation. The exposed brick wall provides texture while the back furniture and window trimming provides the heavy visual contrast without killing the dynamic.
