[White +] Black

[White +] Black 1

This white and black board was tough to do simply because there is so much inspiration out there in this color palette—I probably could have done five boards that were all completely different. If you're looking for color scheme that's truly effortless, black and white really is the simplest and most direct route to a chic and sophisticated event. (And by the way if you have a specific White + color request, please let me know in the comments!)  – Courtney
