I can't blog about what's on our walls without pointing out how much of our walls (and other spaces) are covered with black and white art. It was never something I made a conscious decision to be in love with, but clearly, I am. Homemade or purchased, black and white is usually a win for our space.
I think part of finding your style is having a strong understanding for what you like. The patterns I love for my home are usually the same patterns that I love in my closet or love in my paper projects. I chose my wedding colors by looking through my flickr favorites for the photos that jumped out at me (turned out they were the warm, sun-drenched oranges). I decorated my bedroom by looking for repeating colors in my styled home category on Pinterest.
Black and white is clearly something I am comfortable with and so it's become a go to when I am looking to make or purchase something new. Of course, I am attracted to other color combinations, but if I know I'm going to invest a lot of time or money into something, it's unlikely I'll tire of good old black and white.
