I Love Black and White!

I love black and white in decorating (as well as fashion - most of my closet is black and white).  I think it has a clear, crisp look and adds interest to any room.  I am in the midst of a basement "mini-renovation" and am contemplating how much black and white (or grey) to include in the space.  I am not redoing an adjacent space with is already painted and carpeted a taupe gold so that is a color I will have to work with but I am definitely planning to add charcoal cabinetry and painted doors - the choice of furniture and rugs will follow.

I have a pinterest board on this subject - link to decorating in blacks and grays and spent some time looking at my "pins" today - I found some wonderful images and ideas.

I love the chairs in this photos as well as how they look with the other colors in the room - golds and blues - source link to source 
Black and White - the most simple combination there is but one that is probably the most powerful. As much as I am a colour person, I can't go without some simple blacks and whites to compliment the decor setting. Isn't it just a classic? And I find myself completely in love with the white couch with the black accent

These French style chairs are wonderful and complement the warm colors in the room - I think the woodwork is a dark brown as well (not black) which suggests further options for upholstery.  source
I have a piece of black velvet that I could use - this photo makes it look very doable although I worry about how much dust and dirt it might show.  source
Here is a Suzanne Kasler (one of my favorites) designed space with a velvet sofa - source
Apartment make-over - love the pattern on the back of the chairs source

I will have to make some choices soon for my "new" terrace-level space (aka basement - we don't like that word basement here in the South).  Future postings on this subject to come including some before and after looks.
