Black and White is Always Right

Although I love color, I love black and white even more. Nothing is as crisp, classic, or timeless in my eyes. You can dress yourself or your home in black and white from top to bottom and be assured that the result will be chic and timeless. What other color can you truly say that about? In spite of yesterday’s Valentine’s Day holiday being all about pink and red, which I also love, I have been craving lots of black and white this week. Perhaps it is because I am in the midst of some really big and exciting projects and the thought of such a clean color palette provides a respite for the flurry of ideas and to-do lists in my mind, or perhaps it is simply because this combination endures more than any other. At the core of my style– from my wardrobe, to my house, and even my branding both here on La Dolce Vita and on my Paloma Contreras Design site, I am always drawn to crisp, elegant, simple black and white.
