It's All There in Black and White

Black and white is such a fabulous colour combination, especially when it's used in gorgeous patterned and striped wallpapers, rugs and toille.  Love this look!

  14. Gorgeous images Leigh. Yes I am so sold on black and white I be forever searching for that stunning B&W wallpaper for every office that I ever do. A-M xx

  15. Even though I am not a huge fan of black and white these images are twisting my arm.

  16. Dear Leigh,
    Beautiful rooms.
    The first one is very similar to the room that we always sleep in at my sisters. She has the fourposter bed with toile de joie drapes.
    But, I digress. The black and white theme s very striking and a very fresh and crisp look. XXXX

  17. Dear Leigh,

    Wow! The photos are so striking! Lovin' the accent pieces and colors with the b/w...

    Miss M will be blown away with these...I wonder how she will ever choose a design theme from your many beautiful ideas for her....well she is 15 so that means she can change often as she matures!

    Thank you dear Leigh for visiting my blog and your kind sincerely touched my heart!

    Hope your week is going well.
