Loving Black and White

I've always love the idea of high contrast. What do you think? xo e
Also...Please check out My Domicile Style by sweet Laurie. I was so honoured that she mentioned me in a post  regarding mom's with large families who refuse to give up their style. She really is lovely and has a great blog too. Go! xoxo e

Loving the chair and the kitchen, especially the Eiffel tower print against the white walls. A well-done black and white palette feels timeless, classic, and elegant. Love the post.

Hi Erica! Glad you're back! LOVE black and white, you can never go wrong with it! That Chanel tray is to. die. for.

Beatriz said...

Oh me too... that first photo is fantastic!! And I completely fell in Love with those Hermes blankets. I was just there this past weekend. It's like a museum!

Meg said...

Your blog is absolutely lovely! All of these photos have my pulse racing. So incredibly inspiring!

Kathysue said...

If it is black and white I am so THERE!! My favorite combination. I have a post with some black and white images you might enjoy on my post today and I just wrote a post on black and white last night. This is the second post on this color combo today. It must be something in the air, I love whatever it is!! Have a great day. Loved all the eye candy,Kathysue

I love that kitchen so much and Im so obsessed with the Eiffel Tour painted on the chalkboard, genius!

Naomi said...

i do enjoy black and white, but it must have a pop of color or its a little cold in my mind. when color is involved (even just flowers) its fab!!

Jesse said...

I LOVE it too!

Staley Mc said...

Black and white is just such a classic combo. I love it. I really love that kitchen!

Nikki said...

I'm afraid of color, so of course I love it!

Holly Goes Lightly said...

Nothing says crisp & clean like black & white. As soon as my house gets its white on, I'm adding a B&W canvas awning over the patio... and loads of pink sunbrella floor pillows. Can't wait until it's all done!

Tina Steele Lindsey said...

NOW YOU ARE TALKING! My favorite, and always will be - BLACK AND WHITE!

sarah, flourish design + style said...

yes, please! Love each and every item. Erica, you are after my heart! xo

A-M said...

Does black and neutral count as black and white? I have been kidding myself that our study has a black and white theme but I was sitting in it last night and said to myself, "hang on, where's the white, it's all linen and timber and antique white walls with pops of black. Still it's dramatic and that's what I love about the dual colour combination. A-M xx

I love the black and white contrast. Don't believe me? Just look at my stairs!

Flavia @ Estilo Home said...

Loving that chair and of course the Chanel tray. You have such great taste, I'm really enjoying your blog!

Kerry said...

I have a black and white bedroom...so I'm certainly with you on this combination Erica! Watch out for a post on it soonish...from bland to bold..it really has made a huge difference even if putting the first black brushstroke on was really scary!!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

I love black and white! I could do it in every room. Committing to color is my problem:)

Hamptontoes said...

I LOVE the contrast of light/dark and that first image is amazing...it's perfection!

Oonafey said...

I am loving the chair, not loving the price... bah!

Mrs C said...

Just about to commit quite heavily to the "Black and White" in my new build, even though I've had many a comment to stay away from black......am quite obsessed with it at the moment, can't help what you love?! So good to come across your post and comments, quite reassuring that my styling (I'm no professional) is not too "way out"!!

Am new to your blog...but will be back,

Mrs C x

Kristine at The Painted Hive said...

Oh yes, it is a classic combo for sure!!

sketch42 said...

Love your blog!! How did you find me? I am glad you did, cause now I discovered you too! I need to figure out how people can follow me other than twitter... I am a wordpress blog, not a blogger so I think that makes a difference. Any ideas?

The Zhush said...

I am loving all these images...looks great with your blog banner/header too!

Miss Anne said...

black + white = ♥

Black and white always works. Such a great contrast. lovely pics!

Polly said...

Hi Erica! Thanks for coming by my blog yesterday! It is so nice to connect with you! The first picture is so me! I love the Eiffel Tower print and the marble countertops....we have marble in our bathrooms, and I love it. I wish we had it in our kitchen, but we have a dark swirly granite....it's just a little too dark for me. This picture made me long to change it out ASAP!

Warmly,

Polly

paula said...
