Coveted Crib: Black and White and Modern All Over

I love too many colors and styles to ever go only black, white, and modern, but I applaud he who has the restraint (and the balls) to do it. I spotted this large Georgian house in Tetbury, a small town in — believe it or not — the Cotswolds, and was blown away. Short of a dab of yellow paint in some artwork and its plush green lawn, the house is all black, white, and gray, and each room is essentially either entirely black or white. This makes matching oh so easy! Is that a cop-out? Beyond that, low-slung, stream-lined furnishings rule, and some modern classics like cowhide rugs and Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs and glitzy elements like crystal chandeliers and tufted furniture are spattered throughout. It's a very powerful space that's not necessarily what I would personally create for my own home, but I'd kill to stay over a few nights. See more photos and chime in when you

I love black but I don't think I'd want this much in my room. I still love the mix of textures and I nearly everything about this room.

I like this but would want some small pops of color.

I like this a lot! I've always loved black and white, my bathroom uses these colors. I have to agree I don't think I could do an entire house in it though. Plus I would love just a single splash of color with the black and white... I can imagine the above with just a bright color pillow and it would make a huge difference. I love the chandelier though! I'm sure it's way out of my price range though :(

Wow! This is remarkable! I, too, love color too much to decorate just in blacks, whites & greys, but I can definitely appreciate what they've done with this place.

The house is beautiful, but I'm too much of a color person to ever do anything like this. I did, however, paint my bedroom a deep charcoal gray. It's relaxing and pretty, IMO.

Wow I really like this. I absolutely love black and white. I'm not sure I could do my entire house in it, but like you, I applaud those who can. (I like change too much to commit to such dramatic decor, but on the other hand the black and white provide great backdrops for changing out colors in other accessories/decorative items enabling me to change it up now and then). Suprisingly in this particular home, I like the predominantly black rooms over the white ones.
