I just loved this post! Being partial to modern art, I tend to collect black and white works. in my design work, i try to incorporate strong black and white charcoals or paintings

Donna: I too love the strong graphics of the black and white art. I'll take a strong, abstract work any old day over something that is sentimental and under scale.

I Dream Of said...

Love graphic black and white art! That first photograph is gorgeous- and so interesting. What is that little green stump looking thing? It must be part of an art collection. I also love the Kline-inspired work. I've always wished I could sneak one into my home... XO

I'm really loving all the black & white art I've been seeing lately - it never dates and adds a bit of a modern punch to a space :)

Great post, something perfect for me... black and white is timeless, graphics, photography, paintings...
Do you know the author of the dotted painting? It's really cool! Jenna Lyons contrasted it finely with that fireplace.

An incredible post, Donna. That top image, of the room with the amazing combination of textures, is especially beautiful. Lovely colours and quirky elements. I could just take that over as my dining room, thanks.

You know there's a diy in there somewhere!!

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

Good stuff. I love the simple depth they add to a room.

Know any good etsy sites that do small black and white abstracts? I'd love little ones.
