Y'all know my love of color, but I am planning on a black and white based decor for the new house and that will be accented with colorful quilts and paintings on the walls. But wait...what about a black and white quilt? This just occurred to me today. I saw this pin on Pinterest (my daily addiction) and it looked so right in this setting.
OK so that painting isn't exactly whammo! but it did give me pause, and made me consider making a black, white and gray composition. Not a painting, but a quilt. Recently on my trip to IKEA I got a bunch of new fabrics, and adding my black, white, and prints to this collection gives me a palette for new work.
We have these chairs, which we will arrange as sofa and loveseat in the new home. Pillows and throws will soften the white leather.
And there will be curtains instead of blinds, adding more pattern from this Nate Berkus fabric.
The builder sends these pictures of the progress so I am not driving over there daily, and the trim is now going in and painting is next. All white, including the floors which will be shiny white with two coats of polyurethane for protection from un-manicured pug nails.
Notice those two narrow windows on the right? The space in between is calling out to me to make something long and skinny to fit below them.
There will be touches of red, just so you know. Red pendant lamp shades.
