Simple, sophisticated - black, white + gold


Always classic in black, white and gold. All white surfaces, strong black accents and lots of gilded details. The result is classic, fresh and definitely a little sophisticated. The suites at the Hotel Pulitzer in Rome are testament to the strength of a simple theme used throughout a space. While the look is thoroughly modern in its simplicity, it still has a warmth and comfort that invites you in to stay a little longer in this refreshing space.

I love how they've spaced these mismatched frames, making this quad act as a unit. An easy trick to use - and a more streamlined alternative to a gallery wall.

Black + White has been a big theme in our home, but this space makes me think about trading in silver and pewter accents for gold.


{An apology in advance - posts may be a little sporadic this week as I busily scurry around town trying to sort out little details before our big move this week. As the end of the month is approaching with almost a dizzying speed, I find myself happy, excited and exhausted!}


Hope your week's off to a great start so far - it's beautiful outside!

The art work really catches my eye, especially the way its all positioned. Simple yet eye-catching.

I haven't quite figured out the artwork on the wall behind the bed, but I absolutely love it. It almost reminds me of DNA sequences (yes, I'm that big of a geek). And the black, white, and gold together? It's like a posh hotel. Fantastic.

A great, classic colour scheme.

i too love the use of frames but also the shapes i see everywhere from ovals to circles to squares, using shapes for pattern. genius! i would stay there in a heart beat :) good luck on your move, that is always a bigger project than you think. just stip red wine through the move and you'll be fine! :)

Adoring the four mismatched frames! You're so right about it being a more streamlined approach to a gallery wall (and requires a ton less art!)

Rebecca said...

Feels fresh and elegant. I like the wall art!

Lila said...

It has so many clean lines and just the right curve with the art work! Awesome!

I love this room! The gold just warms it up so perfectly. There is nothing wrong with mixing metals -- done well, it's beautiful.

Have fun planning your new home :)

Love the black/white/gold motif!! So elegant & simple-clean & classic!!!

Charlotta Ward said...

Hope the move goes well. The worst is behind you now. Soon you'll look back and smile.

Agree on black and white - unbeatable.
Also prefer silver to gold.

Can't wait to see your new place.
