10 images

Don’t fear decorating with black and white. It doesn’t have to be the boldness and drama of a noir romance or 1990s power-ballad music video. It’s also a hard-working option. This fab family living room, with practical but great looking storage and cool striped carpet, couldn’t be better for family living. The look is chic for when guests arrive, but easy for everyday life.
