New Years new take on Black n White

I love an elegant interior done with a mix of traditional and modern pieces against a backdrop of historic.  To me this gives a fabulous layered look that is rich with heritage....to render a room that comes across as peaceful and meaningful is my goal as a decorator and designer.  I would much rather take an antique piece and refurb it....it brings so much character, style and lets face it...antiques are built to last.  Creating a home full of the character and the traditions of a family as well as a peaceful refuge from this crazy world is most important.  So with this said I'm looking at some fabulous interiors created by designers like Abigail Ahern, Thomas Obrien and KML Design....inspiration for a new year and new design principles.
 Saturated Tone on Tone is Super Luxe
Use of Black and White details creates Quiet touches of Elegance
 Glossy Black Doors...Traditional Elegance that never ever goes out but adds an oh so posh touch
 Black Iron Chandi's are so fab
 And I'm loving how this white on white adds so much glamour to the room.
 More of that layered tone on tone...its just so extraordinary
 these chalkboard cheese boards used as placemats are so lovely...via the Decorista
 and LOVE this tabletop with black lace details on the linens
 another gorgeous glossy black door
 and this bed is a pampering retreat

 black and white is such a great decorating strategy to bring elegance and style whether its on walls....
 or as details spread around the room or one strong accent....it adds so much glamour and depth.
