Color Game : Black and White

posted on


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.

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.
