When you think of decorating a coastal home visions of blues and greens instantly come to mind. Of course, we love those colors too! However, when we came across this photograph of a room designed by Phoebe Howard, we were really struck by how well this simple black and white palette worked. The decor certainly would be perfectly at home at a waterfront location.
Clearly the vintage black and white sailboat photographs set the tone. From there it was easy to create a room with a great vibe. Graphic black lamps with a crisp white shade and tailored striped pillows give this room a modern feel. However, the classic style of all the furniture pieces keep the room grounded in tradition.
We love it! Leave a comment and let us know what you think. Could you see going for the graphic punch of black and white in your coastal home?
A search through the Cottage and Bungalow website unearthed so many wonderful items in black in white including the Sansaar pillow, Black and Ecru Tattersal rug and our Lattice Off White Porcelain Lamp with a black shade and base.
