The color-coded theme is the easiest way to create a themed d├ęcor. It also has a way of becoming tacky when you make the mistake of overdoing it. Basically, the color-coded theme is all about decorating your space, whether it's your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or living area with one particular color or in the case of a "black and white theme", - two colors. It is decorating a space in different shades of a color. 

Black and White theme
Decorating a space in different shades of a color makes it look like you actually used more than one color. Which is indeed the truth in actual fact. Take for example, the color we all refer to as purple. It has many shades and those shades in turn have their own names like violet, lilac and lavender. However the most prominent color that comes to mind when describing them is purple. This is because the others can be referred to as light purple, bluish purple e.t.c. Same goes for blue, green, pink and so on.

In decorating a color-coded themed space, you don't always have to make it different shades of a color. You can use only one shade of the color and break it up with neutral colors like brown and white, or even black. These neutral colors can be used in the furniture, accessories and lighting. Another good thing about the color-coded theme is that any of the other  themes like the Victorian, French or Asian themes can be incorporated into it. You can do almost anything with it.

Have fun decorating with this theme. you'd love it.
