BLACK+WHITE DINING Breakfast Nook

Gray Malin Prada Marfa “Legs (Black and White)” print, $199+  // pendant, $129 (sold out online) // acrylic chair, $264/pair // sheepskin, $29.99 // charger, $110  // plate, $40  // Reiko Kaneko drip mug, $28 // round table, $199 // wood console with drawers, $499  // Limoges porcelain jug, $187 (similar, $19)  // silver horn bowl, $48  // overdyed rug, $199+ 

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ve been helping a friend with her new place. The scheme thus far has been all about neutral texture and mixing modern and rustic. I’m continuing that theme into the breakfast nook that’s attached to an all-white kitchen with carrera marble countertops and white subway tile backsplash. Black & white is always a colorway I can get behind, especially with some wood or something rustic mixed in, as in these fab spaces…

 As tempting as it is to redecorate, lucky for me, I get to live vicariously through my friend!

(Have you noticed, it follows my “5 pieces to a great room” formula?)

  4. this place is going to be so chic! What a lucky friend.

    Oh and I agree- black and white looks so good with a bit of wood thrown in to soften it.

    Love these picks. I think they look amazing, especially with a bold mix of texture. I just have a hard time retraining myself from color! xo

    I love this! I think that the addition of the black and white striped rug does it for me, those interiors are just gorgeous!

    Beautiful color scheme. I love the rug you have in the inspiration collage and the striped rugs in the home shots.

  9. I am in love with black + white as well…there is just something about it that is so classic and timeless. I don’t think I will ever get tired of it! That West Elm light is fab!!

  10. I LOVE the Gray Malin Prada Marfa photography!!! I want it!!!

  12. i’m such a color lover, it is so difficult for me to be disciplined with a neutral palette– but my boyfriend would be all about this!

    This look is so up my alley, you have no idea! Black and white is my thing and I almost bought the docksta table last week, then chickened out because I want the Saarinen instead…I just love what you did!

  14. I’m a big fan of black and white decor – if only I was better at keeping stuff clean and not messy!
