Black & White - Graphic Love...

Today I love ... these rooms (created by Nate Berkus - also of Oprah [Winfrey] fame) are bathed in the harmonious contrasts of Black & White each plays with positive & negative space in their placements of colour & shade; the light & dark and a fabulous graphic element which is achieved through linking artwork - one of a painterly style in the framed canvas above the bed instead of a head board drawing the eye up (as seen in the bedroom - top) and the photographic piece as ships mast and upper deck area - framed and mounted in white allowing it to float and sail between the white lamps (as seen in the hall console/ study area). Through considered placement and linking colour through artwork (as a joining vehicle - like that of a print in a fashion story) contrasts and limited colour can flow. The fresh clean, contemporary air, adding texture and the personal touches with photos of family /friends carefully placed and the art work really does appeal to me.
