We were thrilled when the ladies from Arcadian Home blog contacted us about creating a guest blog, as we are always interested to see what inspires others. The post that they have provided shares a fresh look at Interior Design while visiting a classic color palette, and who doesn’t love black and white? So without further ado, we introduce to you our guest blogger for this month, Joanna of Arcadian Home blog.

Hi, everyone! It’s Joanna from Arcadian Home blog, a fabulous place to find lots of interior design inspiration for lovely decorative accessories and a myriad of wonderful light fixtures from stunning chandeliers to sparkling Mini Pendant Lights. I’m so happy to be guest posting here at Side by Side Design.
Tami and Lauren have this great series going, called Get Inspired. Hoping to inspire your black and white design dreams, I’ve pulled together eight images of indoor spaces and outdoor rooms dressed up in this crisp color palette. Enjoy!
Black and white stripes help create exciting outdoor spaces and this canopied design is one of the best. It’s a comfortable solitary retreat and a wonderful place for entertaining.
This spacious foyer is beautiful with black and white flooring, tall tropical greenery and that Modern Pendant Light, an updated take on the ever popular hanging lantern.
This feminine dining room with dainty botanical wallpaper and striped rug is picture perfect dressed in black and white.
Dining rooms around the globe have been made more beautiful with the addition of French bistro chairs, but I believe this black and white design just might be the prettiest one I’ve seen. The contemporary rectangular chandelier is a lovely light choice for this space.
From Ralph Lauren, this home office is black and white perfection. Pure white ceiling and woodwork is quite stunning with matte black walls. Deep eggplant velvet on the armchair seat is a delightful touch.
Could any black and white space be more appealing than this waterside deck? Crisp white chaise cushions with black piping, black and white toss pillows and striped throws—a simply perfect place for lounging.
A dark wall provides a beautiful backdrop for this white dining table and chairs. Over-sized Modern Pendant Lights with drum shades in white with black trim look beautiful above the table.
And lastly, a black and white living room complete with ornate fireplace is brought outdoors. It looks comfortable and quite amazing!
