Black and White Decor, like an old Hollywood Movie

There is something about black and white that is simple, but elegant.  Classic, clean, unquestionably sophisticated and elegant. Like an old Hollywood movie.

We love old black and white movies. They are classic, like Katherine Hepburn dressed so  beautifully in Raising Baby.  Could she be talking to Cary Grant?  Notice the French bench in the back ground. This could fit right into a room designed for today.

Imagine Gloria Swanson gracefully and elegantly walking down these stairs with her Rolls Royce waiting for her.

Black and white decor reminds us of Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn.

So sophisticated!

The black and silver combo is also very reminiscent of old  Hollywood.
 What movie could you imagine this would
have been in?

 Can't you see Marilyn Monro slipping on her white robe with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon dressed up in women' s clothing? 
 Remember the movie, "Some like it Hot"?   
The floor and the movie, true classics..

The black painted wood work certainly makes a statement. 
 Like a man dressed in a black tie and suit. Hmmm, Rock Hudson?
