Black and white décor is at once dramatic and understated, modern and classic, apparent in the work of iconic designers such as Dorothy Draper and Madeleine Castaing but just as present in design today. And the inspiration is all around us—from nature (a zebra’s stripes, tree trunks rising from drifts of snow) to old Hollywood movies and fashion to black-and-white photography and patterns we encounter in our everyday lives (crossword puzzles and the pages of our favorite novels).

“Ms. Kemble‘s philosophy – and it’s a brilliant one – is that maintaining a hard line with her recommended palette of black and white is not limiting in the least. It’s actually liberating.…Through more than 350 photographs, Ms. Kemble takes readers inside jaw-dropping houses….The book does such a good job of shining light on the art of interior decorating, some readers may feel emboldened to forge ahead on their own, without a moment of hesitation.” –The Globe & Mail
