Black and white is a classic color combination that will never go out of style. It’s an iconic color scheme that suits just about any room, adding glamour and drama to your microapartment interiors.
That said, black and white interiors could make the room look somber or cold. A pop of accent color is all you need to add a fun vibe to your living space.
Thankfully, black and white make a great canvas for experimenting with different colors! Even better, this color combination goes with virtually any accent color. In case you’d like to redecorate or jazz up your black and white microapartment, these accent color inspos should keep you inspired:
Yellow is a little stark as a room color so this shade is best used sparingly as an accent color. A cheery pop of yellow in a black and white room adds a touch of warmth to the interiors, particularly banana, canary, mustard, and ochre! The shade makes a somber microapartment look perky and energetic.
When adding a pop of yellow into your interiors, don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures to add depth to your microapartment interiors. You can play with matte and glossy finishes to either tone down or enhance the overall effects of the accent color.
Paired with black and white, red is not the best color combination if you’re all about subtlety. Red is, after all, the color of passion. On its own, red is a bold color and too much of it could overwhelm a space. That’s why it’s best used as an accent color. Thankfully, it’s so easy to incorporate a touch of crimson into a space.
Red stands out beautifully against a black and white backdrop. The overall look is always dramatic, bold, and sexy. The red, white, and black combination work great for retro, contemporary and Asian-themed interiors. This show-stopping accent color is perfect for the kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and bedroom.
Blush may be a trendy color these days but it’s always been a timeless shade. And it holds its own against a black and white background. A touch of demure blush adds femininity and softness to jarring black and white interiors.
Warm, comforting, and welcoming, blush looks its best when paired with lighter and/or sharper colors. The contrast between soft blush and bold black is quite dramatic.

Another classic color combination, black, white, and blue add timeless style to any room. From greys to royal blue, powder blue to navy blue, all shades of blue will pair well with black and white. It’s a sophisticated yet versatile color combination that works in contemporary homes.
