Black and white is a classic contrasting color combination that makes spaces bold and modern. Interesting and varied textures help warm these rooms up, and keeps them from looking stark and forbidding. Texture can happen with the smallest of gestures, or with projects that become amazing focal points. How much time do you have? Set aside a weekend, one day, or even a single hour, and make your space more comfortable and welcoming.

Rope projects add a ridiculous amount of texture to any room. This white macramé chair from Classy Clutter really stands out against the black wall, and adds a nubby, handmade feel to the space.
