Photos of the Day: Black and White

It’s Monday again!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Mine was not long enough, as usual.  How about a few black and white vignettes to get your Monday off right?

Big Bold Stripes

This post is dedicated to my best friend Michelle, who loves big bold stripes – especially in black and white.  But who doesn’t love the look of stripes?  The bigger the better, in my opinion.  And the black and white might be my favorite too.  I will never get tired of stripes.  They’re just so classic.

I can’t talk about bold stripes without showing a picture of Miles Redd’s chocolate brown striped living room…

I think my friend Michelle needs one of Ikea’s Stockholm black and white rugs.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I’m excited to have no plans this weekend .  I’m still a little exhausted from last weekend, which explains what a bad blogger I’ve been this week.  I hope you enjoy these pretties and have a great weekend!

New Runner and Good As New Chair

I finally got a runner for the long hallway in my apartment. I’m sure the people who live in the unit below me are grateful. What do y’all think? Black & white + Chevron = Love it! I got it from one of our vendors, but West Elm and Urban Outfitters have similar options.

I also wanted to share the miraculous restoration of a very broken chair. One of my brother’s friends leaned back in one of the dining chairs at my parents cabin and this happened:

But I took it to the Touch Up Guy here in Atlanta and he literally made it good as new! You can’t even tell it was ever broken. Impressive, isn’t it? He even put steel rods in it. Pretty much good as new:

Black / White

Black and white is sort of a tricky color combination for me.  There are certain things that I cannot stand in black and white.  For example, I cannot stand black and white damask – it just screams tacky.  But a black and white abstract painting or drawing?  I love them.  I guess I’m just picky about my black and white.  I usually don’t like black and white patterns or prints unless they’re super traditional or super modern.  But I love a black and white stripe – you’ll see :)

Black and White Abstract

I’ve been working on some artwork for my apartment lately.  I’ve been drawn to black and white abstract pieces for a long time.  I took several art classes in high school and in college.  Instead of buying something or finding a poster, I figured why not put my skills to the test?   How hard can it be?  We’ll see…
