Black and White

We see and live in a world of color.  Naturally, people gravitate to colorful art like a kid to candy, attracted to images that pop with  vibrancy. So, why choose black-and-white when today's media makes color so rich? 

Black-and-white is timeless, but more than that, it transcends reality and transforms an image into a realm that isn't abstraction, but isn't reality either. A black-and-white image deconstructs a scene and reduces it to its forms and tones. Distracting colors are recast as subtle shades of gray that add to a composition—at least if the image has what it takes to be rendered in black-and-white. 

When faced with a particularly tough blank wall, there's one type of art that resonates well in many different types of spaces, no matter the color palette or the style — and we've got the proof from these beautiful spaces that it never lets a room (or you) down!'

Serious Contrast 

Allowing your artwork to take up space is the perfect way to give a space a feeling of grandeur  Talk about dramatic! Here a wall papered wall highlights a small photograph framed with an oversized white mat. This is a young adult's room, so the black and white color is a sophisticated yet super chic choice.

Black White & a pop of color 

Because monochrome is so beautiful adding a bit of color within your design can draw the eye to the more detail oriented pieces in the room

Coordinating With Furniture 

While matchy matchy is out of style we love the idea of a few coordinating pieces in your space. We all have that piece we love and why not make it two? Art is the perfect mate to a statement chair (for example). The objective is not to fill a room with statements but answer your statement piece with artwork.
