Interior Design Color Trend: Black and White

A big color trend that we are seeing in the interior design world is the combination of black and white.  Black and white was everywhere during Fall Fashion Week 2012, showcasing Spring 2013 fashion trends.  And you may remember my post on Christy's trip to Brizo's Fashion Week Event, Jason Wu's runway show for Spring 2013 consisted mainly of a black and white color scheme.

It's also popping up everywhere in industry magazines and at various interior design trade shows.  Black and white is a classic color scheme that will always stand the test of time.  It's always the trusted go-to look for fashion, and is beginning to be a staple go-to look for interior design.  You just cannot go wrong with black and white!


Black and white has been a backdrop for interior design for centuries, from the flooring at Versailles Grand Trianon...
