This black and white living room designed by Vault Design Lab is visually appealing and sophisticated without a riot of colours.

The white marble accent wall behind the free-standing TV creates a focal point in the living room while the carefully chosen monochrome artwork on the wall makes the room look more interesting. Meanwhile, a beige sofa, a Prussian blue rug and velvety blue and purple throw pillows add touches of subtle colour without ruining the dramatic effect of the black and white theme.
