Description

Product Description

Black and white décor is at once dramatic and understated, modern and classic, apparent in the work of iconic designers such as Dorothy Draper and Madeleine Castaing but just as present in design today. And the inspiration is all around us—from nature (a zebra’s stripes, tree trunks rising from drifts of snow) to old Hollywood movies and fashion to black-and-white photography and patterns we encounter in our everyday lives (crossword puzzles and the pages of our favorite novels). 

In Black and White (and a Bit in Between), acclaimed interior designer Celerie Kemble trades in her signature vivid palette for this iconic aesthetic, highlighting the black and white work of design stars and peers, including Bunny Williams, Thomas O’Brien, Mary McDonald, Victoria Hagan, Mark Hampton, Delphine Krakoff, Brad Ford, Philip Gorrivan, Carrier and Co., and Miles Redd, and welcoming you into more than 100 spaces in every imaginable aesthetic. Woven throughout are her witty observations and expert advice on choosing the best paints and finishes, adding patterns and accessories, building an entire room scheme based on inspiration found in nature, collecting black and white objects, and even choosing the perfect accent colors. 

With more than 350 gorgeous color photographs, this is a vividly photographed celebration of a timeless scheme, infused with inspirational tips, glimpses into showstopping homes, and proof that a limited palette is anything but.

Review

“Hardcover eye candy….Highly compelling spaces that provide evidence of [Kemble’s] theory that ‘boundaries provide freedom.’” – The Dallas Morning News 

“In visits to more than 75 homes, Kemble reveals that this classic, timeless pairing is anything but limiting.” – San Francisco Chronicle, a Fall Home Décor book favorite

“Ms. Kemble''s philosophy – and it''s a brilliant one – is that maintaining a hard line with her recommended palette of black and white is not limiting in the least. It''s actually liberating.…Through more than 350 photographs, Ms. Kemble takes readers inside jaw-dropping houses….The book does such a good job of shining light on the art of interior decorating, some readers may feel emboldened to forge ahead on their own, without a moment of hesitation.” – The Globe & Mail

I purchased this book solely for decorative purposes. I’m writing the review for those who like to know what the book looks like outside if the stock photo like me. I tend to flip through the pages of design books for inspiration, not much there in my opinion. Black and white is very easy “to do”. However the beautiful photos and colors are nice to look at and could very well help some one clueless about design.

This is better than some of her other books, which profile room after room dressed in so many colors that they look like a childish, jumbled mess! Yet, in spite of her toning down the color excitement here , I''ve concluded, I really do not like her design style. There is really nothing to write home about. The rooms she''s chosen are in black and white, all white or grays. Most of the profiled rooms look artificially made up, thrown together quickly, instead of organically coming together over time with lots of forethought. They are modern, yet outdated in appearance as odd as this sounds. This is her taste in all of her books. She does however write and explain concepts well, so if you want to read about design, she is good. If you want to read about why choosing a black and white scheme is nice, she''s convincing, but when you look at the photos she''s chosen to represent this greatness-- in my opinion, you won''t find anything here you haven''t seen in a thousand magazines before.

I have always been partial to black and white or black and ivory decor. I used it in the early 80s for 6 years when it was in style. Now it can be used anytime anywhere. This book gives reasonable decorating ideas and inspires me to come up with ideas of my own. I like the encouragement to add black on things I hadn''t thought of using before. Celerie has done a good job. I recall seeing her on Martha Stewart and enjoyed her casual attitude about decorating as a professional.

I have many "decorating" books, and this one is now my very favorite! It is the first one that I have EVER read cover to cover, word for word. The author is very readable and she explains why things work through the use of many photos of rooms decorated by many different people. I am admittedly a fan of "black and white" myself, which is what drew me to the book in the first place---but absolutely anyone who has an interest in decorating their home and appreciates wonderful interiors will take away something from this book. Highly recommended!

The concepts were presented in this book as Black and White Decorating schemes. These concepts in black and white were just as applicable to decorating with color.There also many good general design tips in here that would help or freshen the mind of a decorator. As an individual who was considering the possibilities of black and white in my home this was exact stone weight that I needed to JUMP to the Black and White decorating scheme in my home. The book is well written and the photos are excellent. This book can be read in about 4-hours but with each multiple reading you gain more and more education. Definitely a home library book for those interested in the history of decorating, design, black, white, and the combination, and gray spaces.

What a disappointing book! I expected to see sophisticated interiors in black and white but there was not a single stunning picture in the whole book. Instead, in many pictures, the black and white elements consisted of rugs or wallpapers with bold geometric designs. Not very inspirational! I wish I hand''t bought this book.
