A Perfect Formula

When it comes to decorating, I nearly always start the process with a monochromatic palettes. Perhaps it’s because I’m a girl that likes to play it safe, or maybe I just gravitate toward simplicity. Either way, I’m a big believer in investing in timeless black and white pieces to fill out a room and adding less expensive accessories to keep the look fresh.

But how do you keep the look warm, rather than cold, minimalistic and uninviting?

With wood.

It’s very Scandinavian, yes, but also very classic and easy to transform as your tastes grow and change. After all, wood can be finished, re-finished, painted, re-painted and stripped over and over again. Even better? Wood is a warm tone, so you can count on its texture to create an inviting atmosphere in your otherwise monochromatic room.

White + black + wood = my perfect formula. What’s yours?
