WE LOVE: The Beauty of Black and White

For event designers and party planners, the world of events is tremendously exciting because designing rooms and spaces is a process of starting afresh, taking risks, and giving shape to the imagination. Working within the constraints of budget and the client’s taste is expected, but as far as color selection, most event designers draw on a kaleidoscope of options. Yet, sometimes living on the color wheel is overwhelming.

We have found that paring down a party’s color scheme to black and white can tone down that pressure, yielding a tremendously powerful, eye-catching result. In all its simplicity, black and white décor is at once modern and classic, dramatic and understated, as it is timeless and elegant.  In other words, it’s a sure thing.

No matter how you position them,  black and white will evoke a sense of romance and style that transcends time.  We have only to look to classic black and white films or photographs to know that time goes by in color, but we remember it in black and white.
