When we think “black and white”, we think smart and sophisticated, and most definitely not out of date.
If you want to create maximum impact with this colour scheme, look for the brightest, most crisp white and the purest black. You can soften the harsh contrast of black and white by introducing some grey tones.
Black is a strong colour that creates big impact, so if you have a small space, use it sparingly. Consider a glossy finish for your black surfaces; this will help to bounce light around the room and make the black feel less heavy.
