Black & White- Ten Years and Going Strong

Ten years ago, Connor and I were newlyweds in a small one bedroom apartment. Because I was still figuring out my style, I decided to decorate with black and white- black furniture and white couches. I eventually added red to the mix in the way of red throw pillows, a red tea kettle, a couple red candles, and a red outdoor rug that we used under the newly black painted dining set(my first DIY).  When I think of that first apartment, I can't help but smile. It was a simple apartment, but our hearts were exploding with pride and happiness to have a home together. Though my design taste has changed (and grown), I don't look back on those early decorating years with dismay. Yes, the matching red candles/tea kettle/throw pillows ensemble is long gone.....but I think design is more about how well designed a room is, I think it's also about how it makes you feel. Ten years later and I still love the calmness of black and white interiors.
