How To Style A Black & White Living Room
When it comes to designing a black and white living room, always start with a neutral base. Typically a big ticket item like the couch or sectional would be considered the heart of a living room. Once you have that neutral staple base you can continue to build the design by adding texture and layers. But first comes the furniture, some of my favorite brands to shop for black and white furniture include Lulu & Georgia, One Kings Lane, and Arhaus.

The Importance of Contrast and Balance
It is imperative when styling a room that there are both contrast and balance. While monochrome interior design is sleek, we do not want it to be boring or monotonous. You can break up that monotony with patterns, and mix them in the room when it comes to rugs, pillows, and other decorative pieces. This way the color scheme is still intact while adding some contrast to the room.
