Loving deco these days and black and white is so classy. It also happens to be the color of my cat, Lilliput. And the color of my mom's new cat, Kody. So, in honor of Lilli, I give to you... deco in black and white.
Now, not all of these objects are from the correct time period, it's more that they speak to me of the aesthetic.
