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…


 And of course, two of my favorites…

 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?)

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. 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

  2. Always a perfect mix. You can never go wrong with black and white. Love the chair with the sheepskin and the rug!!


  3. 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!!

  4. 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!

  5. My brother suggested I may like this website. He was totally right.
    This publish actually made my day. You cann’t imagine just how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
