~ layers of black & white ~

noir et blanc
Layers of my black and white kitchen
checkerboards
dots
solids
floral
monograms

fresh whites layered with strong blacks


contrast
my white teapot against my black table

fun
whimsical polka dots

{just recovered my kitchen chairs with this sweet dot fabric}



printed floral
from a
shower curtain
fabric wall hanging
to damask dishes
plus
something sweet thrown into the mix
just for the fun of it
{banana split cupcake}
proving that
all blacks and whites do not have to be boring monochromatic

HI Koralee,
I love when the same color is mixed in all different patterns. The polka dots and toile are great together. When I finally buy a house I so want the black and white checkerboarded floor. It is my favorite!!
