Designing a room for longevity always requires a careful balance between timelessness and just enough color, pattern or texture to keep from being boring. Two-tone schemes keep things simple while introducing a little bit of bite. They also allow you to mix things up just by changing out a color or introducing an unexpected accent. Black and white is a classically high-contrast combination, but other pairings also offer flexibility...
