The Serenity of Black and White

I love the combination of black and white in any decor!  It is both cool and hot and looks great with so many other colors.  I find that people love it but are afraid of it - they often have not tried this color combination in their homes.

Over the years, I've had some wonderful black and white pieces.  They usually take a little longer to sell but I have received wonderful accolades by the buyers once they've taken the plunge and actually put the pieces in their homes.

Another great thing about black and white is that it gives you an opportunity to "refurbish" woodwork that just isn't so great looking anymore.  It is easy to use spray paints in glossy to flat to totally redo the legs and make them pop!

Here's a tribute to a great color combination!
