There are times when we obsess about décor and furnishings. Some of us save up to buy that single iconic chair or loveseat that will elevate the interiors to a whole new level. Then there are occasions when we endlessly ponder over color schemes and accent hues. Yet, the most personal and beautiful part of a home is often a display of some cherished moments framed up and arranged with cherished symmetry.
Photographs and photo galleries are nothing new when it comes to interior design.
In fact, they are one feature that might be as old as our ability to create permanent dwellings!

Shades of Contemporary Charm
With home owners and designers sticking to backdrops in warm earthen shades of cool muted tones, an image in color can often disturb the flowing form. Black and white photographs add uniqueness, depth, character and style to walls without upsetting the color scheme of the room. They also seem to accentuate the impact of accent colors like red, yellow and green. Doubling up as lovely standalone art pieces that blend with plush neutral décor and as cool personal image collection, black and white prints are multidimensional and easy to incorporate.
