Black and White Accent Pieces

Black and White   1

We all know about accent pieces- little items full of pattern or color that make a space pop. While accent pieces are typically not the main focus of a room, I have fallen in love with the statement floor or backsplash as the ultimate accent piece in a kitchen or dining room. I’m a girl who loves her neutrals and love the trend towards black and white as accent colors rather than more bolder and brighter colors. This first image, shown on My Domaine (which is one of the few websites that I read on the daily), features an accent backsplash which I LOVE! If I had my dream kitchen, I would seriously consider this beautiful pattern.



 Black and White Accent Pieces


These kitchens use black and white diamond tiling to accentuate their spaces. I love the pairing of a minimalist kitchen with the patterned floor tile- it adds dimension to the space without disrupting the lightness already created. It is an easy way to include pattern into a kitchen without too much extra work.




If you like the patterned tiling but aren’t sure if you want to go all the way with it, another option to incorporate large black and white accent pieces is to purchase a large patterned floor rug. Rugs can bring so much texture and edge to any room and make it feel cozier. I love the top image with the black and white striped rug- using a rug instead of tile is great for those of us who rent! I adore a white kitchen and love perusing Pinterest for ideas for future spaces. Black and white is classic, easy, and never goes out of style.
