We are big fans of color around here. Our hearts beat for a bold blue bedroom or blush-toned powder room. That said, we cannot deny the attraction we feel towards these strictly black and white dining rooms. Their monochrome finish is something that is striking and cool. If you are interested in creating a neutral space, let these black and white rooms be your guide.

We have a design crush on Natalie Myers of Veneer Designs. This LA-based designer is the queen of creating comfortably chic spaces. Her designs are extremely well-curated and embrace the balance of white space. We are all about this little dining nook that she designed for a California-cool client. This room is giving us major modern and luxe bohemian vibes.

We can’t get enough of this moody dining room, designed by Louise Liljencrantz. The absence of color creates an edgy vibe that’s perfect for hosting a grand holiday celebration.

If you favor a rustic or farmhouse aesthetic, this spot may be more your speed. The shiplap wraps around the space lend instant character while the black accents shine in the predominantly white room. The only piece out of place is the rug from Loloi, but we are so into the slight contrast it provides. 

This room is where masculine meets glam. The dining chairs balance out the more glam chandelier. To recreate the look, begin by painting the trim black, frame the windows with a dark hue to draw more attention to them, and keep the walls white to play up the contrast. Erin Gates hit all of the marks with this design. 

For a mid-century and bohemian vibe, take note of this dining room. This is the magical home of interior designers Lauren and Geoff Lewis of Bowerbird Interiors in Sydney, Australia. We can’t help but feel transported to the vacation home of our dreams, when gazing at this dining room.

This space feels seriously sophisticated. We are all about the brass accents and lucite chairs. An easy way to include some black and white into your space is to throw down an affordable yet chic monochrome rug. The graphic nature of the print pops right off the floor. Homepolish interior designer, Megan Born, has perfected the elegant-meets-neutral look. 

Do you want to take a peek into the home of Lo Bosworth? Her dining room, designed by Justin DiPiero, is right up our alley. The nickel sputnik chandelier is totally chic while the hide rug is an easy solution to incorporating a touch of white into the room. 

This cozy and cool dining room screams sophistication. Tamara Magel, the talented interior designer behind this space, is a master of mixing luxe neutrals and refined materials.
