Beautiful black and white décor in a small apartment

When you have a small apartment, you feel that the small size is problematic and complicated enough and you try to avoid overthinking things when decorating the place. Sometimes a great way of maintaining a clean and simple décor in a small apartment is to keep the color palette as restraint as possible. A black and white combo is a classical, popular and always great choice.

When you only reduce the décor to only two colors everything becomes simpler and clearer. It’s easier to imagine how everything will look like in advance when you only have two colors to worry about. When those colors are black and white, the décor and the atmosphere become even more classical and chic. This apartment, in spite of being small, has an airy and discreet look. This classical and always beautiful combination of colors was used to create interesting contrasts but also to maintain a sense of simplicity.

It would be easier to consider this a white apartment with black accents. The walls and ceilings are white throughout and this provides a crisp and bright background for all the furniture and decorations. In the living room, for example, there’s a very nice balance between white and black furniture. The black and white striped rug combines the two main accent colors and it also matches the decorative cushions from the sofa. For diversity, different patterns were also included in the mix.

The kitchen is mainly white but it has a black and white striped rug similar to the one in the living room, a detail that created continuity between the decors and an overall cohesive look. The balcony is the only portion of the apartment where the black and white combo has been abandoned in favor of a more earthy look with exposed bricks matching the color of the surrounding buildings.{found on Bolaget}.
