Can't go wrong with black and white

Black and white is such a great starting point for a home. In this case it is white walls and BEAUTIFUL glossy black hardwood. (Gawd how I would love floors like that. DAMN CATS!) Here the owners added lots of colour and kid friendly furnishings to make it energizing and fun. Take out all the colour and add lots of wood, grey and brown and you've got another totally different vibe against the black and white. Easy peasy. Via Hus & Hem.

Black and white are definitely the perfect combination! It looks elegant in any situation.
A lot of cool pictures really!

If you really want that floors so hard, could the cats gang stay at your parents place or at some friends for couple of days? At cat's hotel? I would go for brigher, neutral floors. Black floor any any dust, cat hair etc. is a star.

I have too many cats to be able to drop them of at friend's or my parent's house. And it would take more than a couple of days. If we decide to tackle the floors one day, I'll have to figure something out.

I agree, those floors are just fab aren't they :o) Black and white is so stylish and the perfect blank canvas to build on. I love the added pops of colour in this case, it really does add energy and fun factor, without detracting the stylishness of the home.

I just bought the throw rugs pictured here at my local .99 store for 1.99 each. Looks like I will be sewing them together!
