Oakland is in the fog today. That gray would be a pretty inside wall color but it's a dreary outside color for a Sunday. Time to liven things up by playing my little mind game of putting a whole house "together" using Pinterest. Let's say someone gave you this pretty San Franciscan Italianate house. What would you do inside? There's nothing fresher than a black and white palette so let's see how it could look.
With such a polished exterior, why not mix up the entry way with a green "house?"
Don't you love the juxtaposition of a 1880's house with a timeless, well- traveled interior?
The dining room with black framed travel photos and a black and white floor.
A black cupboard could be used in any room.
A kitchen chalkboard is a fun way to accent the black and white scheme.
Interior doors painted a matte black.
Spa-like master bedroom and bath.
Romantic attic guest room and bath.
Black and white rooms make for a dreamy city oasis against the foggy background that is so often San Francisco. Come to think of it, maybe a nap is the best way to dream of the possibilities. Enjoy your Sunday.
