As clean and sleek modern Nordic style becomes more and more popular, so monochromatic black & white interiors create more interest all over the world of interiors. Eventhough, black & white is kind of a symbol of perfectionism, to mix these high contrast couple with/on soft materials such as wood, rusted metal and to place next to  shades of grey works out perfectly to achieve a warm and relaxed style for a home. This way _ as we see in many inspirational interior photos_ monochromatic palette never gets boring but rather exciting.

  3. Beautiful post! It’s fun how when it comes to design, interior design especially, black and white becomes bold and daring. In other aspects of our life like in photography we sometimes think of it as being a bit boring. As the photos you posted show, black and white is anything but boring in design. I really love the rug you posted in the second picture. It’s a pretty basic and almost plain area with just the chairs and the picture, but the rug really helps to spruce it up a bit. Modern Rugs can really make a huge difference in the interior decorating area and black and white seem like good go-to colors. I also like them because while they can be bold, they are still pretty neutral colors that can match anything fairly easily.
