Nothing was hidden about this dynamic mod personality room — it’s all spelled out in black and white.

Everything is totally refreshing, especially the antique 1930s radio, looking just as it did when the sounds of Stardust and Guy Lombardo filled the air. The coffee table in the center of the room had the same warm wood tone as the radio.

A black and white textured stripe pattern covered the sofa, while a black antique upholstered chair sat nearby with a zebra print throw pillow. All the furniture was on a fluffy black and white thick shag area rug.

What’s that strange-looking ceiling fixture? It’s a big strip of reflective silver mylar stretched on a frame (the hang-down look was achieved by placing a salad bowl underneath).

On the wall was some simple abstract mod art of stylized stretched black circles on a white background. It was just one thing that was noticeably reflected by the ceiling decor.

The two black on white polka dot hassocks by the window were really small commercial storage drums covered with inexpensive fabric.

To keep this mod black & white living room and its many patterns and textures from looking too fussy, the windows were left curtainless, and instead jad just simple white roller blinds.
