Tips for using black & white framed prints
When using the basics of black and white to build a distinct colour scheme, it can help to think of them more as complementary colours. Decorating with black and white is often key to an elegant, classical style, which can feel both modern and timeless. A popular method is to either use shades of black or white for an accent wallpaper, or as the key colour when painting an accent wall. Stylish black & white framed prints are an especially good match for this kind of accent wall. Hung sympathetically, black & white framed prints can be a draw to the eye. If your accent wallpaper is dark or black, you can create contrast by adding a black & white framed print in predominantly lighter tones. On a white wall, you can achieve the same effect with a black & white framed print in darker tones. Another trick, which may at first seem unusual, but which will ensure your room makes a powerful impression, is to divide a wall using a row of black & white framed prints. You can do this easily by hanging a selection of prints in a row, or in a vertical line. You could cover a wall with a collection of small motifs, or mix a range of different print sizes. The only limit to decorating with black & white framed prints is your imagination.
A quick look into the past
When it comes to interior design and your chosen theme, it is always helpful and interesting to have a bit of background information. With black & white framed prints, the first thing that comes to mind is classy and history, since these are the subjects entering our minds when we think of those colours. For example, the first legitimate photograph ever taken which has survived to this day was in 1826 by the French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. The photo is called "La cour du domaine du Gras", which means "the view from the window in Le Gras" and depicts the view from Joseph's workroom in the town of Chalon-sur-Saône. The exposure time was around eight hours, which makes the lighting in the photo a little special, because the sun had changed positions during these eight hours. Much has happened in photography between the years 1826 and now, but something that has not changed is our fascination with images rendered in black and white. You will find many historical pieces in black & white framed prints, which can look good in any domestic, commercial or recreational setting.
