Book Review: Black + White (and a bit in between)

black and white table setting with white flowers and black candles

When I received Celerie Kemble’s latest book, Black & White (and a bit in between), in the mail last week, I had a really good feeling that I was going to love this book. 

Once I dove into this beautifully compiled collection of black and white interiors I was not disappointed. 

In fact, the author is so convincing, I feel like I want to empty my whole house and start over again in chic black and white with small hints of metallic accessories!

The best part is that this book is not just about decor…there’s plenty of fabulous inspiration for entertaining and some really great cleaning tips as well!

So many stunning photos throughout this read, it was hard to select only just a few to show here.

Pick up a copy and see for yourself.

PS: For even more great home decor ideas, don’t miss this post on modern traditional decorating style.
