Black and white richly defines us, bringing clarity and focus, evoking strength and power. Black and white is the Ying and Yang of life. White is the absence of color; black contains within it all color. The ancient symbol with the essence of one in the other reminds us that polarities are never absolute. Whatever happens in life we can always see another more edifying, uplifting perspective.

Design

Black is the newest trend on interior design today. It is a color that seems simple to work with but only masters know how to use it properly. White is a color that allows you to be productive; it makes a room feel open, spacious, and balances the room to create  a serene feeling. It is also tends to make things beautiful while feeling casual and fresh. Applying just the right amount of black within a room can transform serenity into lavish or exquisite feeling. Why leave it simple when you can do fabulous?—Interior designer Hernan Arriaga

Love the earrings! Would have added an over-the-top ring. Taylor would be an absolute showstopper carrying the Dazzle All in Silver Diamonds clutch with this gown.
