As a treat, I bought an issue of the British Homes & Gardens magazine today. The cover story was about France and all things French. I was looking at their website later on, and they have a wonderful gallery of images. I found myself being drawn to the black and white rooms, which, while I love them, I know I could never do that look. There's just something so sophisticated yet simple about black and white, with maybe just a pop of another colour. Here are some images from BH&G. Let me know what you think.
I love the different patterns, but all in b&w.
The curtain headers in this dining room really accent the window height.
The Roman shades in this one are great!
Although there isn't any black here, I love the mirror and the green!
