White and Black and Gray and Brown used in Design. Spotted in Fashion and Interiors

I have always been a fan of black and white.  It is crisp, clean and bold when used together.  When I see a room designed with black, white, gray, beige and brown colors it appears sleek, simple, crisp and modern.  The best part about these colors is, you can add pops of red, orange, blue or yellow to liven the room up without changing what already exists. These neutral colors ( an achromatic color scheme) are the basis for many great designs.  I see a steel gray suede couch in my future! A foundation to build upon it always the place to start.  In fashion the same is true.  A little black dress can be beautiful by itself or with a strand of pearls.  To liven the look up, add a shocking red wrap for a FAB dot dot dot look!  Enjoy my pics!
