What is it about Black and White?

images via NZ House & Garden
Black + White = old movies, piano keys, zebras, photography, sheet music, the road ahead, a suit & tie, the All Blacks.....(can you think of more?)
What IS it about the black and white combo. that I find irresistible???
Maybe there are parallels in and white stands for a clear-cut decision, no ambiguity, no too-ing and fro-ing, you know where you stand, and what you see is what you get. I like the sense of security that decisiveness brings, even though that does not necessarily describe what I am like personally. My head and my heart are often in conflict, (which is probably why the colour grey comes in a close second!).
I think maybe that last image is brown/white but I still love it.
NB. The All Blacks are New Zealand's National Rugby Union Team and held in high regard:o)

Hi Ange! Just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment. Annie from A View on Design is a great lady! She was one of my first followers.

I can think of black and white tile floors and a pair of cats, one black and one white that live on my neighbour's roof!

You have a lovely blog and I have added it to my favourites!

Hi Ange! Hope you guys are having a great weekend! Yep.. The first thing that popped in my head was clean cut / clear cut. I have always loved this combo & wear it often...
I looked up that book you are reading.. Sounds like a good teaching style to implement! What do you think? Bravo to your hubby for teaching math! I wish I had a love for that Very important subject!! How are the temps there? We just had a cold front move in.. dropped into the 60's... Big change from Friday!
Blessings ~ Teresa

Just classic, the B&W look! That striped stool at the foot of the bed in the first pic looks fab.
