I didn’t realize how much I loved this….not just black & white mind you (I do love that, too), but particularly when a room is mostly white and then contrasting black or dark brown on the bottom.
I remember reading years ago (I think Gwyneth said it) that she always went darker as she went down in her outfits. She did so because it gave an elongated look. I have found myself following this rule (except for nude shoes…especially great nude heels) and it rings true for me.
I didn’t realize how much I love this in interiors. I find it all over my home and throughout my files.
