Why Choose Black and White Wallpaper?

Why Choose Black and White Wallpaper?
You may have noticed that panoramic wallpapers are now essential in decoration. Whether in specialized magazines, restaurants, or even in movies and TV series, we often see beautiful designs perfecting the decor or being the centerpiece.

In terms of colors, you have many choices, including black & white variations. In this article, discover the true advantages behind grayscale wallpapers and how to play with the sobriety and elegance of this Isidore Leroy selection.

Inspirations for All Your Desires
Most wallpaper trends and inspirations are available in black and white. At Isidore Leroy, we particularly love these options, which often serve as the foundation for our creations. For example, the iconic "Dune" model, created by artists Martine Dubreuq and Isabelle Parmentier, was initially in black and white before being revisited with pastel shades.

If you’ve never applied wallpaper at home, dressing your wall with a grayscale design is a great first step to discover and be captivated by panoramic wallpapers.

If you love the jungle style, you’ll find several models offered in grayscale. Discover, for instance, the "Amazone" and "Rivière des Parfums" designs, available in Gray and Gray Engraving. They will add a touch of tropical elegance and sobriety to your interior!

For coastal landscape lovers and seaside trends, you’ll find stunning black and white landscapes of Brittany, the Arcachon basin, or the Mediterranean. The elements that compose these panoramas are presented in different planes: first the vegetation, then a path leading to the ocean, and finally the horizon, adding depth to your room.

Prefer a pattern? We offer models like "Ombelles" and "Lounge" in black and white versions. Patterns add a graphic and modern touch with finesse.

And let’s not forget the little ones! For your child's room, a grayscale wallpaper can grow with them over the years. You can replace the bed and decorative elements as your child grows and even change the wall colors while keeping the wallpaper.

Black & White for All Rooms in the House
This category of wallpaper is not limited to your living room but can enhance every room in your house. It will add elegance to your bedroom, your dressing room, or a minimalist decor in your entryway.

As mentioned earlier, black and white wallpaper in a child’s room allows for sustainable consumption as it can accompany your children for many years.

In the kitchen or dining room, opt for the new "Arbustes" decor in black and white. The mimosa, strawberry tree, and fig tree are charcoal-drawn by Francesco Battista and can be placed on the design according to your preferences.

Easily Adaptable Decors for Any Decoration Style
Whether your room's decoration is already established or you wish to completely rethink it, a grayscale panorama is an excellent choice. It complements any type of decoration. This timeless decor can accompany you for many years, whether you change the furniture, wall colors, or the sofa. It remains a key element, adding depth and beautiful details to your wall.

For example, if your living room is already to your taste and you wish to keep your furniture and existing color touches, black and white wallpaper will not overload your space. It adds depth and dimension without introducing new shades.

And if you’re completely rethinking the room’s decor, dressing a wall in black and white allows you to play with colors on other decorative elements like cushions, rugs, or other wall colors. Feel free to follow your desires; black & white wallpapers match all colors, especially this year’s trendy shades: beiges, terracottas, greens, and Pantone’s 2023 color, magenta.

You can also go minimalist by pairing your wallpaper with raw materials and simple, refined decorative items. Prefer natural and light tones like grays, beiges, and plain whites in this case.

Different Artistic Techniques
Technically, you will find various options among Isidore Leroy’s decors. Each model results from collaboration with a French or international artist, bringing their artistic touch.

Artist Francesco Battista highlights pointillism in creating the "Vallée du Rift" decor. Every element - a tree, a giraffe, or a cloud - consists of countless small dots delicately applied by hand in ink. Once the decor is on the wall, closer inspection reveals the immense effort behind this landscape, inspired by a nature reserve in Tanzania.

The dreamlike "Cité Rêvée" decor was drawn in pencil by Octave Marsal, giving it a lovely engraving effect. It’s a laborious task, as the vegetation and architecture in this drawing are subtly crafted with pencils.

And If You Still Want Color...
If you’re drawn to monochrome but still want a touch of color, know that black shades can be replaced by your chosen color. Customize your favorite decor in intense green, almond green, or brown for a warm ambiance.
