The Challenge: Black, White and Gold Interior Design

- Ensure an open flow for one continuous space while evoking visual interest
- Work with a modern and contemporary style with some natural woods and greenery
- Include gray tiles as flooring that give off the feel of concrete
- Incorporate gold accents within the luxe black-and-white color palette
- Paint the walls in an off-white shade to highlight an airy and spacious home

Black and White Interior Design Ideas & Inspiration
The client provided combined living and dining room ideas and inspirational images with a few things in common. Besides a monochromatic color palette, each image features sleek furniture and a fresh, elegant feeling to the spaces. In addition, the black and white décor adds visual interest and dimension to each area while keeping it cohesive. Overall, the clever layout and design feel tasteful and refined.
Moodboard & Black and White Interior Design
To begin, the client completed a simple online quiz, followed by setting their requirements. These steps were seamless because the client already had a good idea of what she was looking for. Up next, a virtual consultation took place with one of Decorilla’s leading experts. After that, the team used the info to match the client with two ideal designers.
Both designers created superb moodboards reflecting the client’s contemporary and modern design preferences. It was now up to the client to select her favorite. Although it was a tough decision, Casey stole the show. Her black-and-white concept captured what the client wanted with decor, finishes, and furniture.
Black, White and Gold Interior Design Results
The living and dining area extends into the kitchen and is a symphony of dark hues mixed with gold accents. The crisp off-white walls contrast against the gray concrete floors. In addition, the pops of greenery add life to the space. Ample light sources are present, with grand chandeliers. As a result, there is warmth in the interior and it feels inviting.
Modern Style Black and White Living Room & Dining Room
The combined living and dining area consists of clean lines and simple shapes. A modern fireplace with a television sits as a focal point, upscaling the room. The charcoal gray hue hides the monitor as it blends in with the dark color. Plus, the structure splits the space into two halves. On either side are seating areas with cream sofas, with one section also holding the black and white dining room.
The muted shades of the window treatments, sofas, and rugs have an elegant air. On the other hand, the dark hues of the fireplace, flooring, and cabinets create a sophisticated feel. Moreover, lighting, abstract art, and decorative pillows add flair while unifying the aesthetic. In addition, textural elements bring interest to the monochromatic scheme.
Overall, the modern style of the black and white living room, kitchen, and home bar is harmonious. Décor and furniture picks are cohesive and carefully chosen to suit the very specific interior look. The space is undeniably timeless as a result.
Plenty of windows allow natural light during the day, while stylish chandeliers create an enchanting glow in the evenings. The bar area, especially, shows off an elevated design with a sophisticated built-in cabinet. The cabinet’s matte black door fronts, marble countertop, and mirrors embolden the space’s chic appearance.
Black and White Dining Room and Kitchen Design
The black and white dining room and kitchen design form part of the open floor plan. No walls separate the different zones, but area rugs and lighting define each. This space echoes similar elements of the living room, unifying the design. As a result, a seamless color palette and décor style flows through the interior. A modern chandelier brightens the interior, while dark chairs, a white tabletop, and gold accents unite the room.
The same black, white, and gold interior design continues in the kitchen. Lightness in the form of white walls, cabinets, and marble detailing balance the darker floor. A contemporary island and the waterfall-style white quartz countertop give an elevated aesthetic. In addition, downlights provide ample light for food prep.
The polished concrete floor adds textural interest as it flows from the modern style black and white living room to the kitchen. Moreover, warmth enters the room through wood and iron counter stools and natural wood floating shelves.
