Addendum

Those Guinness prints in the vintage frames?  Just like this home in miniature.  The perfect blend of old and new.  The owners, Joseph Montebello and Ron Leal were inspired by Vicente Wolf (Montebello edited Learning to See.)  Their home appears in the January issue of Metropolitan Home, which I think is a knock-out, because, well, you know, it's mostly black and white.

Soodie, I chose this particular image just for you.  Seems they are Westie lovers as well.  Photography, Tim Street-Porter.

Great chairs, but the Belgian Shoes are what I want for Xmas.

The combination of black and white is my most favorite too Mrs Blandings! It is so bold and graphic, yet calming and neutral. Masculine yet feminine. However, before anything else, I immediately spied that little wesite so attentive and so well behaved in the chair. Thanks for the post.

Patricia, I am starting to paint and draw in black and white, inspired by my friend Lee Bowers and also by Albert Koetsier. I know you love his work as well.
