Black, White, and Wood.

 

There will always be something inherently chic about a monochromatic color scheme, or simple black and white. It is timeless, clean, and always seems to come across as elevated.

 

Lately, with next week’s launch of our new Hashtag lights, I’ve been asking myself…How do I make the elevated look of black and white seem more welcoming….seem more authentic? All of our new lights take the most popular hashtags from fashion week, and turn them into wooden pendant lights with black and white cords. So as you can see…black and white is definitely at the forefront of my mind.

 

Let’s face it, we’ve all thought it at one point. “I love this living room! This space looks like it stepped right out of a magazine”…and then thought…”but how do you live in something that feels so harsh all the time?” The reality is, sometimes the starkness of just white and black is anything but welcoming. At the end of the day, you need your space to make you feel like you’re living in a...

You've got to admit, this set up not only looks beautiful, but also makes you want to jump right onto that couch and relax. This photo from the Oracle Fox blog is a perfect example of comfortable chic. The wooden floor and coffee table make it all feel light and easy.

 

 

 

I think we agree that the statement piece of this room is the art. In my opinion, the best part about it is all the white space for one simple witty message. The other great part about this space is definitely the wood ceiling. This is what keeps this room feeling authentic and warm.

Speaking of interior luxury…minimalism has been making a huge debut throughout luxury interiors as well… though I feel like it’s taken on a new edge. It used to be that I thought the minimal look was cold, and unwelcoming. Now, with the trend being towards highlighting vintage patinas, and warm woods… I am absolutely in love with the whole aesthetic. Posted here are some of my recent faves. I love how this space is focused on the beauty of the wood grain on the wall.

Vintage patina is so much more beautiful when it can take center stage. Without a lot of design distraction, things with a little vintage appeal to them seem much more special.

This space is a great example of how minimal can be warm. The wood and white make you focus on what counts by calling you in to take a closer look. I only wish there was an interesting lighting feature... a native chandelier would be perfect here.

How amazing does this wood look against the minimal background? All the white forces you to truly appreciate the gorgeous bent wood entry way.
