Black and White with a splash of Color

Hi Friends,

The goal here is two-fold; create an attractive yet comfortable reading area and introduce a black and white scheme with a splash of color. Welcome this opportunity to add that apple green or cherry red pillow. Appetizing!

Transform that unused corner into a casual, sophisticated and inviting area to read a book or just take a minute of uninterrupted silence. Echo an adjacent chair for symmetry with an ottoman for a tray of coffee or just put your feet up to relax. Adapt the resort spa or bed-and-breakfast theme for your space. It's tranquil, blends seamlessly with bold color accents to create a casual design that is classy.

Dramatic, expensive changes are not necessary to add flavor and flair. Fabrics and furnishings that are beautiful and timeless make an excellent foundation for flexibility. Black and white gives a sense of masculinity, like that favorite pin-striped business suite, while the traditional wing-back chair lends to the sophistication of an old Victorian villa.

Take advantage of this unique combination to play with color and contrast.
