Trend Alert: Black and White Elegance

From black-and-white ball gowns to checkerboard floor tiles, this classic color combination just oozes simple sophistication. Add a few feminine flourishes, curves, and floral patterns, and you've got a major home-decorating trend for fall and winter.

These furniture pieces and home accents are unfussy but just ornate enough to look elegant and not the slightest bit masculine. They're also very versatile, since the black-and-white palette makes even more traditional-looking pieces fit right into a modern room. For examples of the trend, click on the photos below.

I'm so sick of black and white. Right now my school uniform is black pants and white or black tops. That is all I see all day. I need some color when I come home.

My comforter is very similar to those Urban Outfitters curtains. I just bought it at Target about a month ago. I loooove it.

Cute stuff - I don't think I would make a whole room black and white though.

LOVE that sofa from Anthropologie. I sat on it in the store the other day- suprisingly comfortable. But a tab bit pricy ($3,000) for something that will only seat 2-3 people.
