Black and White Wall Art for the Contemporary Home
Timeless and classic, black and white wall art will never go out of style. Specifically black and white photo prints bring an element of nostalgia, paying homage to the early days of photography.
Black and white wall art is versatile enough to compliment any decor style - modern, traditional, contemporary, vintage. Add a natural or barnwood frame for a rustic farmhouse feel. Add a metal, steel frame for urban or industrial decor. The decor possibilities go on and on!
Below we have an inspiration board of sorts, including visuals of black and white wall art in various types of frames, black and white gallery walls, and black and white wall art ideas for the bedroom and living room. We hope you enjoy!

Black and White Art Framed
Generally speaking, you simply can’t go wrong framing your black and white art print in a classic black frame. The addition of a white mat adds even more contrast for a polished and sharp look. Another option is framing in a white or light maple wood frame, adding contrast and a softer feel. We also love pairing a more relaxed barnwood frame with black and white images, instantly transforming the overall look. We also threw in a frameless black and white photo print for fun. The frameless look is modern and you don't have to worry about a frame competing with the image.
