No other color palette offers bold contrast like black and white. This sophisticated yet casual bedroom provides ultimate contrast between shades of black, gray, and white. Rich, black glossy floors, bed linens, chair frames, and accessories keep the room grounded with plenty of dark hues that provide depth. Slate-gray walls and a white ceiling and draperies balance the depth with light hues that keep the room open and airy. A black and white room always demands attention.

Modern simplicity

This modern dining room in a monochromatic color scheme is the perfect backdrop for this incredible ocean view. The hard, slick surfaces of the marble floors and stone table are immediately softened by the white chair upholstery and the elegant cream draperies. Since the view of the ocean waves rolling onto the shore is the main focal point here, there’s very little color in the room, other than a simple, striped valance in white, gray, and taupe that hangs above the cream draperies.

Simple privacy


If you have a loft or small living space, you can create privacy between areas with beautiful fabric room dividers. In this small apartment, a soft, white fabric with a subtle, gray floral pattern creates a simple curtain room divider that sections off the bedroom area when closed. It provides privacy for the sleeping area and adds visual interest to the entire living space, whether it’s open or closed. A beautiful curtain room divider is a great design solution for small living spaces.
