Black and White: A Classic Combination for Outdoor Living

A color combination that always looks classic is black and white.  I like it especially in outdoor spaces, because it looks fantastic with greenery and every color flower. It lends a timeless and elegant quality to any outdoor space.

Here are some examples of porches and patios that are decorated in black and white:

Isn’t the black and white cabana striped awning above striking? Notice how pretty the blue and white ginger jars look with the black and white combination!

Black and white works well poolside, too, as in the three photos above.

Black and white is a crisp and classic choice for outdoor spaces that complements rather than distracts from the surrounding greenery.  Would you consider it for your home?
