What more could one ask? Light, simplicity, comfort. A welcome start to a new day.

One of my favorite blogs is Thomas Murphy's "BLOODANDCHAMPAGNE." Murphy scours blogs from around the world to post real rooms lived in by real people. Here are a few of his posts featuring black and white rooms....naturally.

A streamlined, contemporary dining room. Food and people are the only other 'ingredients' needed.

Here, the black and white square tiles on the floor play out the geometric theme of the rectangular windows, shutters and blank picture frame.

Another black and white tile floor, this one the main decorative feature in an otherwise spare and simple dining nook.

Another black and white tile floor, this one in small squares for a small space. The white subway tile back-splash plays out the tile theme.

The warmth of the wood floors enhances the white Arne Jacobson chairs and black Parsons-style dining table. All three are backdrops to the view from the balcony beyond.

A grand Parisian salon is even more beautiful left free of decorative embellishments. A chair for contemplating the city beyond and a few potted plants to bring a touch of the outdoors inside are all the elements needed.

Thomas Murphy's blog is a visual feast of contemporary style from around the world. Check it out!
