Jo was just on the Marilyn Denis Show talking:
How to Decorate with Black and Whitehttp://www.marilyn.ca/AtHome/segments/Daily/May2015/5_21_2015/BlackAndWhiteDecor
Ease Into Drama
Start with pillows to get motivated before you fully commit to a bold space. Or begin with a smaller room, like a den or bathroom; you don’t necessarily need to make the main living room the most dramatic.
If you’re afraid of a white sofa and black walls, reverse the look for a black sofa and white walls. The look should be classic, yet playful. Reinvent it to keep it current and modern.
Think in Reverse
Furniture ScaleWe don’t all have the space for a large sofa; thankfully small pieces make a space seem bigger.
Everyone talks about mixing metals, but what’s really interesting is mixing warm metallics, like brass, bronze, rose gold and gold.
Mix your Golds
Add drama to any space with unusual pieces, like a big art wall, antlers, vintage pieces, or an oversized lamp.
Think outside of the box for a media stand and opt for a decorative console table with cubes underneath it for extra seating options. This will add visual interest to your TV wall.
Console Table as a Media Stand
Add height with a fiddle fig plant. Dramatic, large plants are coming back into style.
