Decor ideas // Black and white accents

DecoratingLaura RennieComment

I've recently adopted a new attitude regarding both my decorating and clothing style: I want to pump up the modern and playful factor while still keeping my overall look classy. I don't know if it's the spring air or what, but I'm craving a healthy dose of freshness in each room of the house. Many black and white accents fit the bill for being modern and/or classy, and you can't get any fresher than white! Here are some ideas for how to add these contrasting colors into your home:


top row

Diver print — Society6  / Plus-sign pillow cover — Society6 / Striped marble bookends — West Elm / Table lamp — Target

middle row

Tribal throw — Target / Geometric bath bath — Target / Planter — CB2

bottom row

Canister — CB2 / Striped wall hook — Anthropologie / Oil and vinegar bottles — Crate and Barrel / Abstract print — Minted


I recently purchased this pillow (at a store) and this art print, and I actually won the abstract print above in a giveaway! I've also been working on slowly replacing the curtains in several rooms of the house. I'm in a season of having to closely watch my spending, which I'll be writing about later this week. If you haven't noticed, I recently added the tag #WelcomeToTheRennies to pictures of my home on Instagram. Check them out here.

Which of these items would you pick for your home?
