The timeless black and white duo is increasingly promoting designers. Even if this color combination does not present a particular level of difficulty at first glance, a monochrome color design requires good specialist knowledge. The reason for this is relatively simple. Black and white are the two extremes of the color gamut we know.
The light-dark contrast – black and white pattern is fascinating
White and black are the lightest and darkest values that we can perceive. When they come together in a successful color scheme, they can show excellent results that we can admire on wallpaper samples, wall posters or tiles.
Black has the ability to swallow a lot of light.
On the contrary, white reflects all the light present in the room. Both opposites, skillfully put together, could only exude elegance and refinement if we only know a few design no-go’s. Now you are probably wondering how “skilful” and “right” might look like …
Creating an effect through light and shadow
Achieve a balance between black and white
Pay attention to the amount of paint
A black and white pattern should correspond to the furnishing style
Learn to think in negative space
Skilfully changing perspective and space
Working with contrasts is not an easy task
Since the design in black and white works over the light and dark contrast, we aim to achieve a balanced relationship between light and dark with the dual play of colors. With the help of the attached visual examples, you can see for yourself how different the effect of a facility or wall design in black and white can be.
Compensate for confused patterns with single-colored surfaces
Use graphic motifs as inspiration
Set accents consciously
Uniform atmosphere in the interior
Determine a center point
Conquer monotony with pictures, posters or photographs
The effect of the two (non) colors comes into its own on wallpaper or wall samples. Geometry and ethos, but also floral motifs work perfectly in the monochrome color space. Here an effect is achieved through the amount of color. You can try out the effect of some samples in black and white yourself, or you can carefully analyze the attached images. Vertical and horizontal black and white stripes, just like checkerboard patterns, look different from zebra or ethnic patterns. Many graphic motifs can serve as a model.

Contrasts can also be decisive when choosing materials

Black and white wall patterns and their effects
It is possible to achieve a lot with a little. Imagine a black surface or wall! Now imagine a white picture frame! and?
With one of the most important contrasts, namely light and dark, you can create rooms, highlight movement sequences or even create crazy optical illusions.
You should just start with it, because trying is better than studying!
In this sense, happy work!

Shapes, too, long for balance
