Stripe me lucky

Black and white is a classic combo that never goes out of fashion. Throw them together into a stripe, and it's even better. I've been seeing this pic all over the place lately, and it was love at first sight:

is this not the most gorgeous storefront ever? It belongs to designer Liz Caan. Perfection.

I love black and white awnings. So fresh, yet chic and classic at the same time. And how better to frame a lovely window, or door, than with one of these arrangements.

 Sibella Court's shop, The Society Inc. Love the green door too....and that it won't stay that way for long - she changes its colour often. Brilliant

 Nathan Turner is starring in my new fave show, Million Dollar Decorators. Of course we're late to the party here in Australia, but I don't care. Loving it sick.

 Double the good stuff. 

 Love the awning and the pooch

And best of all, it completes an Aussie beach house to perfection. 

So, are you a fan of black and white? Love it, or (heaven forbid!!) hate it?

  14. How could anyone hate classic black and white?,
    it was new in the 1920s, new again in the 1980s and now new in 2011.

  20. Yes, yes, yes! Love it. Those colours and awnings and just overall gorgeous setting would compel me to walk into that shop and buy something regardless of what it sold. Just sensational.

  21. Omgosh, I have wanted black and white striped awnings for my home for so long I can not remember ever not thinking about them. It is on my someday list. So far the closest I have gotten is a curtain on my front porch in black and white striped. Love all of the above images!!! xo Kathysue
