Guest Picks: Black And White
Hey Gorgeous Events
Black and white will never go out of style. Whether it's a contemporary ikat pattern or classic stripes infused into your decor, you can't go wrong with a little black and white tossed into your home. Use small prints in little places for a classic touch, or larger, bold prints in high doses for an edgy, fresh look.

Portofino Pavilion, Black - $699
I vacationed once in the Bahamas where they had adorable striped umbrellas at each beach chair. Step it up a notch with this retro-inspired striped pavilion.
Savannah Story Bust, Zebra - Anthropologie.com
Probably one of the more cliche ways to decorate in black and white, this Anthropologie papier mache animal head is a twist on a classic.
Ikat Linen Armchair - $1,789.77
I can picture this chair sitting perfectly in a nursery for the family that thinks a little out of the box. A solid-hued throw tossed over the back of the chair could tie this piece into any room decor.
Charlie Headboard, Zigzag - $449
I love how fun this chevron headboard is, especially if you prefer to have your bedding be all white. Place this piece in your guest room for an unexpected pop of pattern.
Paper Lanterns, Black And White Stripe by Z Gallerie - $12.95
In the wedding industry, paper lanterns are still holding strong. However, I haven't yet seen this fun alternative to the dozens of solid hues out there.
Lisbon Knob - $8
These little hand painted knobs pack a fancy little punch. Put them on the doors of your bathroom vanity sink or dress up your boring-looking pantry cupboard.
Moroccan Rug, Charcoal - $449.95
There's something I love about an area rug with a bold print. Paired together with a sleek black and white palette, this Z Gallerie rug is a must have.
Zigzag Floor Pouf - $249
I've always wanted a round pouf, but haven't had the guts to shell out hundreds of dollars. This square-shaped West Elm version is the perfect substitute.
Sparrow Salt And Pepper Shakers - $8
So these little sparrow salt and pepper shakers are too cute to pass up.
Trina Turk Pillow Embroidered Linen Greek Key, Black - $110
The fabulous thing about this Greek key–patterned pillow is you only need one to get your impact across. Toss one on your bed or your love seat in the living room.
Kate Spade New York Larabee Road Black™ Tidbit Plates - CAD 59.99
Kate Spade plates in black and white polka dots? Sign me up, please. What's not to love about this adorable and stylish plate set?
Mimosa Reversible Bedding - Charcoal - $169.95
Reversible bedding is sort of like a two-for-one deal. You get the best of both worlds with a different look dependent on what side of the sheets you have up!
Kate Spade New York 'Japanese Floral' Rose Bowl - $60
This is hands down my most favorite Kate Spade print ever. While I can't imagine splurging on an entire dinner plate collection featuring this lovely print, I'd be completely content with this beautiful bowl.
Ogee Napkin Set - $20
I love how these napkins look like they were hand-painted. And it's a double bonus in my books that the pattern is holiday-neutral — break these out to spruce up a regular weeknight dinner!
Raya Vase, Black And White - $49.95
Simple and sweet, this black and white vase from Z Gallerie is an excellent accent piece for your coffee table, kitchen counter or entryway table.
Montecito Panels - Black - $59.95
If you're into modern and bold prints, these Montecito panels are perfect for any size window. I especially love the look of these in an all-white decorated room.
Claude Indoor Planters, White - $16
I always find myself putting back potted succulents at the market, because I can never find cute planters to put them in. Enter this two-tone indoor planter from West Elm. I'm loving the various sizes, too.
Olunda Picture - $39.99
This print has been around for years at Ikea, but it never ceases to amaze me at how fancy and impressive it can look, especially when used in a repetitive pattern. Try hanging three across, horizontally, in your hallway for a streamlined, but high-impact look.
Kite Kilim Rug - $49
Looking to dress up your dining room area or your hardwood floors? This graphic black and white rug is the perfect touch to warm up any space.
