Gunning for a timeless and classic look for your home? Opting for a black and white colour scheme is an effective way to do it. In the book Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections, Celerie Kemble enumerates the reasons homeowners should consider B&W in their homes:

"It’s elegant. A black and white palette has a special and enduring glamour that dresses up any room. It’s versatile. Over the years, you can add new elements to a black and white base—one new pillow, painting, or sculpture can refresh the entire look," says Kemble. "It’s classic. Long after your magenta armchair has gone... the cream silk velvet love seat in your black and white boudoir will stay with you—as will your black and white checkerboard floor, your black lacquerware, and your white china."

Check out these black and white rooms that spell beauty and elegance. We can't help but love them all:

2. "With a black and white palette, you can take design risks and stretch your imagination, mixing and matching eras, objects, scale, passions, and themes—with less chance that your room will end up a mess," says Kemble. Prints and patterns in black and white come together harmoniously in this kitchen and dining space.

4. It's easy to get creative in a black and white bedroom. Mix textures and prints, and even subtly add other colours. This bedroom, for example, has undertones of natural brown.

5. Even if this black and white living room is populated by a variety of prints in uneven frames and random accessories, it doesn't look a bit cluttered. The reason? "Black and white scheme is orderly. The color scheme dictates a clean, uncluttered look that organises the room around it, and organises your head. The simple colors and lines of the black and white room allow you to streamline your downtime surroundings," says Kemble.

11. "[Black and white palette] is inclusive. Because a black and white scheme is so unfussy and classic, it camouflages inexpensive items well. This is ideal if you intend to invest in finer pieces down the road—or if you need time to work up the finances to splurge. It can absorb and frame new higher-end pieces gradually," says Kemble. This bedroom features simple yet elegant furnishings and accents.
