Delightful Polar Opposite Black and White Patterns for Your Pad

Black and white patterns for your space.

Go bold with high contrast black and white patterns for your home.

No matter the size of your home–a studio apartment, a spacious townhome, or a palatial suburban single-family home–one easy way to add bold visual interest is with black and white patterns. From florals, stripes, paisley, gingham, chevron and more, there’s a world of pattern to pick from across the spectrum–or at least at least from either end.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match black and white patterns either. As long as your keep things dichromatic (meaning having two colors, as opposed to monochromatic which refers to one single color), patterns of all kinds can come together for a beautiful black and white statement.

Additionally, get creative with it and think about adding black and white patterns in unexpected ways. From retro black and white patterned floor tile to a painted black and white chevron ceiling, the limits are your imagination and your budget!

Here are some lovely examples to inspire you to bring the boldness of mixed black and white patterns into your space.
