Here's a Beautiful Reminder That Black and White Will Always Look Good Together

We can all agree that black and white looks good together in theory, but there's something about seeing it in practice that still catches our eye. Today, we have Veronica Valencia to thank for the stunning reminder. Texture, definition, and all kinds of organic accents make their mark in this sunroom, and we couldn't help but take notice. So, what makes it all work so well? Its mix of inviting and sophisticated touches. The cream-colored foundation starts this off, which covers everything from the window treatments to the seating arrangements to the rug. Its combination with striking black details, especially in the window trims and ottoman, creates a contemporary feel that gives the airy cream shade a glamorous edge. Meanwhile, abundant natural light illuminates the rest of this cheerful look's range of compelling textures — like the vases of plant life on either end of the couch, or the woven basket in the foreground — and a few natural wood details complete the aesthetic with just the right dose of warmth. It's all a beautiful showcase that highlights the impact of two beloved shades.
