If you’re looking for color scheme for your home that’s classic, chic, and in-style all at the same time, it’s hard to beat black and white. Black and white is arguably the most classic, enduring color combination in home decor, which can be chalked up to the fact that it’s simple and striking, but most importantly, incredibly versatile. Black and white suites a modern, minimalist space just as well as it does a traditional, ornate one.
Below, three examples of black and white decor in totally different styles, plus picks to help you get the look at home.
Modern & Natural.
Black and white is an easy fit for the streamlined forms that define modern style. Mixing geometric black-and-white pillows in a variety of prints gives this contemporary space an eclectic element, while adding an unfinished wood table and palm-leaf plant creates a balancing, organic quality.

Industrial & Masculine:
As feminine as the above look is, black and white is also well suited to masculine spaces. The key is to choose furniture distressed or industrial styles; rich, natural textiles like leather and hide; and linear prints with a menswear feel, like checks, plaids, and stripes.
