Black and white vinyl tiles probably did more than anything else to start the “black and white plus a color” decorating trend.

In this eyecatching black & white entry hall from the late 60s, the tile squares weren’t set down in a typical one black, one white pattern. Instead, the squares were big and bold — four tiles to each block square, and laid diagonally.

Designers of any generation can indulge black and white with more of this contrasting combo — in this case, a patterned wallpaper that was distinctly different from the floor’s design.

Even the door trim was painted black, as was the single thick black shelf mounted on the wall.


The rust red in this room came from the artwork hung above the floating shelf, as well as the candles that sat on the small ledge.

A little extra color came courtesy of two artificial green topiary set in black plant pots.
