A short while ago I was approached by my phenomenal realtor, Patti Goss, to pull some ideas together for the reface of her fireplace and the revitalization of her kitchen… and, because her space is open concept, some more ideas on how to pull everything together around her ONE requirement = black & white. Or is that TWO requirements??!!
Black and white spaces really are fantastic, and when Patti told me that she wanted her condo in that scheme (she has a white sofa that she loves) I enthusiastically started researching some spaces/concepts that we may be able to adopt and adapt for her space.
I’ve got quite a e-folder full of black & white spaces, let me tell you!
So many that I thought they’d make a perfect “Hooked of Fridays” post!! Thanks to Julia from Hooked on Houses for hosting this popular and fun weekly blog party… be sure to check out the posts featured by other participants listed over at Julia’s place!
I know that Patti has me brainstorming around her main living space but I’ve also found some bedroom inspiration photos too… thinking she may want to extend the concept throughout her entire condo. I’m sure there’s SOMETHING in what I’ve found that she’ll like… what about you?!
I LOVE this rug… among other things!
I’d definitely like to see Patti opt for a black wood floor like this one. Absolutely stunning!!
The light floors in this space, though, really help to make this space airy. I can see Patti here!
These next four pics are from a place photographed by Tom Atwood. I thought I read that the rooms were from his own home, but unfortunately I’m not 100% sure. What I do know is that they are fabulous spaces!!
I wonder if Patti would want to incorporate variations on black & white… shades of greys?
How about a Sarah Richardson room in Black & White?!
I can never get enough of Sarah Richardson’s designs! Let’s not forget that, in this particular space… and the whole house for that matter… Tommy Smythe was Sarah’s right-hand design guy. Very talented in his own right!!
I love black & white when it’s coupled with a touch of colour, in this case Sarah & Tommy have used a lovely, mossy green. FAB!
And I still have more black & white rooms to show you!!
Black & white “stuff” that I found and loved!
Patti said she wanted a black kitchen… how about this?!
Maybe a bit too modern… but perfect for someone who loves minimalism!
And lastly (finally, you’re thinking!!)… just for the fun of it:
So what do you think… can Patti find some inspiration from my collection of black & white rooms?! I hope so!!
Patti and I still have to sit down and make our plans, but as soon as we do – as soon as I have the go ahead on her fireplace (a topic for another post!) – I’ll write all about it!!
