ACCENTS: [The B&W post] : What's Your Flavour?


WHAT'S YOUR FLAVOUR?





Whilst rummaging through my images recently, I noticed certain pics kept popping out and grabbing my attention. No matter how much I tried to ignore them, [as they weren't the focus of my search], they just kept making their presence known! And whom do you ask were the cheeky attention seekers?






BLACK & WHITE of course!.. That is... Black & White Accents!!






Even more so than a predominately Black & White Room, Black & White as an Accent, seems to jump out at you and get noticed! And not to be too greedy, it gives it's friend [colour] an added boost!











So.. the Question is:



How do you do your Black & White Accents?













1. GRAPHIC PATTERNS




















2. STRIPES [ALWAYS A CLASSIC]


















[insert pic here]





[Missing is the ubiqituos B&W striped cushions.
I must have dozens of these pics but couldn't find a single one]
















Or do you get a bit more adventurous and go for large floral patterns








3. FLORALS

































And for the truly brave - there is always





- The SOLID Black complimented by White Accents




4. SOLIDS















SO WHAT'S YOUR FLAVOUR?

I totally love black accents - in fact I don't think I have a room in my house that doesn't have a shot of black in it (except for my son's bedroom). Black picture frames, black vases, black skirting on my bed - I think it gives a neutral room some oomph. Congrats on the mention at Porchlight (one of my regular reads), you are likely to get lots more drop ins now, and deservedly so!

I love a touch of black against taupe - yummy. Oh & don't forget some folk love B&W because it's their footy team's colours - but thankfully I'm not one of them!

I really like the first pictures. In fact, I would like a kitchen like on the first pic, but then with the tiled floor of the second pic. :o) I really love the lamp on the first picture too... Must find out where I can find something like that!

A very inspirational post indeed!

Have a nice weekend,
Angela.
