This is how I decorate my home for christmas this year. Not everything is black/white, but a great part of it is. I think that it makes the details pop out in a beautiful way. I have made the little stars myself, they are quite easy to make, and the process is cozy* (*a word we use a lot in Denmark). The candle is shaped like a peace of wooden coal, which is nicely done with beautiful details.
