Mood Board Monday | Black and White

Welcome to week three of Mood Board Monday! This week, we're creating mood boards based on the classic colour scheme "Black and White".

I thought I'd try something a little different this time, and use an image as inspiration. I was instantly drawn to this striking image from an article titled The White House featured in Norwegian publication "Interior Magasinet". The simplicity of this black and white room is just stunning. As beautiful as it is, I started imaging what other elements I could add to the room to give it a little more personality...
My mood board includes additional pieces of furniture, lighting, and accessories that would add a little softness, pattern and texture to the "blank canvas" featured above...

Now, just because I can't get enough of black and white, and cakes as's a little celebration mood board I put together as well. Black and white for a party theme, never goes out of style!
  1. The jumping off point for this mood board was this stunning cake by Maggie Austin. Her ruffle work is just amazing, as are her handmade flowers.
  2. What's a party without the perfect invitation? Loving the mix of fonts used in this letterpress invitation created by etsy seller Mailbox Bliss.
  3. Give your rubber stamps extra life by creating hand stamped cookies using food colouring...follow this simple DIY tutorial. Wouldn't they make gorgeous take home gifts for your guests?
  4. Use clusters of black and white balloons to reinforce your party's theme.
  5. It's all about the little details. Why settle for a simple straw, when you can use black and white striped straws featuring customised tags? These ones are available from etsy seller Becca Ann Bond Designs.

Does black and white inspire you? Link up your mood board below. Submissions open until Sunday, 8 September 2013 at 11.55pm.
