Color Game : Black + White

April 10, 2016



Oakland is in the fog today.  That gray would be a pretty inside wall color but it's a dreary outsidecolor for a Sunday.  Time to liven things up by playing my little mind game of putting a whole house "together" using Pinterest. Let's say someone gave you this pretty San Franciscan Italianate house.  What would you do inside?  There's nothing fresher than a black and white palette so let's see how it could look.



With such a polished exterior, why not mix up the entry way with a green "house?"



Don't you love the juxtaposition of a 1880's house with a timeless, well- traveled interior?


The dining room with black framed travel photos and a black and white floor.


A black cupboard could be used in any room.


A kitchen chalkboard is a fun way to accent the black and white scheme.



Interior doors painted a matte black.



Spa-like master bedroom and bath.



 Romantic attic guest room and bath.


Black and white rooms make for a dreamy city oasis against the foggy background that is so often San Francisco.  Come to think of it, maybe a nap is the best way to dream of the possibilities.  Enjoy your Sunday.
