Hi everyone! Julie here from Chapman Interiors sharing a beauty of a home today. Black and white is at once classic and bold; a unique combination really for a pair of neutrals. I can’t think of many others that can evoke such glamour! And this home is a prime example of clean and simple lines highlighted in black and white – a true classic.
I especially love the striking X base of the table paired with the gentle swoop of the tulip chairs. And black-edged shades on the chandelier perfectly echo the fine lines of its structure.
Spaces flooded with light are always beautiful, and this is no exception. Although I might like to see a touch of color here, even just in a flower arrangement, the simplicity of the palette allows the lines of the pieces to really stand out – especially in the cocktail table and miniature stools (so cute!)
This bed is feminine and simple at the same time. Being that it’s higher off the ground it lets light sneak under, giving it a floating quality (heightened by the high-gloss floors- love that unexpected feature in a bedroom!). Again, the lines speak for the space here, and I like how cohesive that feels throughout the home.
Let’s make our own space using this home as our guide. The basics? Larger pieces are white, black is found in delicate frames and legs throughout, draperies are griege and very full, and floors lean to the lighter end of the spectrum…
Do we like it? Simple yet intentional, like there’s a plan. The sofa is a modern lovely (evokes that tulip chair yes?) and the chandelier couldn’t be more perfect with its hints of black. A simple floor lamp and pretty white dresser (swap out those silver knobs for black!), some heafty foliage and a gently patterned rug makes me click my heels together… maybe it’s my last ditch effort to hold on to the lighter days of summer, but I’m loving this airy feel. You?
