When it comes to decorating with these two classic shades, finding a delicate balance between the two is key. Enter one ultra mod, Brooklyn brownstone, (spotted on Lonny!) featuring a chic and masculine design scheme, which proved that a lack of color doesn’t necessarily mean a compromise on style. Here’s what we learned.

  1. Bronze pulls make for unlikely, yet flattering, accents atop the streamlined details of the glossy cabinets. A light grout, used for the marble backsplash, complements the adjacent white wall. The polished finish of the cabinetry provides a defined and decorative touch to the color scheme of the room.

  1. A reserved color palette makes for a more cohesive space. Within the all-white dining spot, located off the kitchen, a Scandi-esque bench provides additional seating, on an as-needed basis, while a pair of dining chairs pay tribute to the theme of the decor.

  1. Wooden textures and sleek leather details extend a warm element to the strict color scheme.

  1. No surface is off limits. A whitewashed brick fireplace, with a glossy black insert, makes for a luxuriously elegant finish.

  1. Extend the color scheme all the way to the powder room, with an intricately patterned tile design for the floors. Complete the look with mid-century modern elements and metallic accents of a bronze hue.

  1. One can never go wrong with a pops of vibrant red. Case in point? This not-so-subtle touch of color, within the graphic wall art.

  1. While a black and white design pattern can often allude to a more minimalist feel, sculptural furnishings of a metallic finish can help establish a dynamic, yet refined layer to the overall look.

  1. A potted palm (or any statement-worthy green) contributes a natural element no space should be without.
