BLACK & WHITE

DESIGN CHAT: BLACK & WHITE COLOR PALETTE

As much as we love color here at Lisa Gilmore Design.  We also LOVE a black & white palette. There is something timeless, classic yet versatile about the opposite attraction of black & white.  Whether it’s tile or drapery or vintage zebra print chairs, we have done it all and will continue to. The key to a black & white palette is texture and to not be afraid to go BOLD. 

Texture and Mixed Metals can make an amazing palette!

LIVING COLORFULLY

There is just something about a colorful environment that makes my heart so happy. Combine that with pattern and other fun elements and I am one happy designer!  

Sometimes I let my imagination run wild and just create spaces to feed my design cravings.

I personally love the idea vibe of this space. Black and white stripes, paired with leopard print and floral, pops of bold color, including the ceiling. Regal furniture pieces mixed with more modern elements make this room exciting and not too traditional or too modern.  

So what do you think? Would you ever dare to live this colorfully? Share your thoughts! 

DESIGN CHAT :: BLACK & WHITE BEDROOMS

I have this love, for black and white design. Well, really black and white anything. As I'm sitting here typing this I look down and I am dressed in black and white graphic pants and a black top. The drapery in our studio is black with a classic black and white tape.

I particularly love black and white in bedroom settings. In the spring of last  year, we completed a fun contemporary project in the greater Sarasota area. The master bedroom featured a nice crisp black and white design with touches of gray and adorned with metal elements.

Isn't the bold black and white pattern on the drapery just delicious? I love how striking it is, I think it pairs so nicely with the black and white lacquered furniture.

INSPIRATION: HOTEL - LA RÉSERVE PARIS

Today, an email from Rue popped in my inbox, I was introduced to La Réserve Paris and immediately smitten. Monochromatic colors, clean lines, oh boy those clean lines mixed with the Parisian vibe, I’m in love! Rarely, do I talk about something on the blog as soon as it hits my inbox, but today I really felt compelled. This design is truly breathtaking. Whenever I get the opportunity to travel to Paris, I am surely going to attempt to book a reservation here!
