Jessica is an architect living in Los Angeles, a native Texan, a former New Orleanian, and a lover of a certain color palette. She started her design blog, {Black.White.Yellow.}, as a means to document and share things that inspire her. 

If you check out my blog, it’s pretty obvious that I love black, white, and yellow. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Etsy items with you…organized by my favorite colors, of course.



[1. Laboratory bottle set from AMradio; 2. Mid Century Designers pencil set by oneupdesigns; 3. Himmeli no. 5 mobile from AMradio; 4. Wearable planter no. 6 by wearableplanter; 5. Custom hanging lamp kit from EarthSeaWarrior; 6. Mid Century stool from Hindsvik; 7. Black geo earrings by amerrymishap; 8.Paper twine from PaperPhine; 9. Wooden spoons from SucreShop; 10. Triangle day bag by bookhouathome.]

Black always brings the drama. A cluster of black pencils grouped in a piece of vintage lab glass adds impact to the simplest workspace, while a traditional mobile in inky monochrome becomes an airy work of geometric art.


[1. Dotty straws from beautifulrevelry; 2. “Marvellous” brooch by rareindeed; 3. “Dancing Triangles” fabric by NewMomDesigns; 4. Pendleton pillow by IndianvsIndian; 5. Timp print envelope clutch by romawinkel; 6. Tiny basket by perchceramics; 7. Teardrop planter by lovebugkiko; 8. Printed leather pouch by CORIUMI; 9. Triangle print tee by JessalinBeutler; 10. Salt and pepper jars by paulova.]

White is clean, cool, and eternally modern. It’s the perfect partner to graphic patterns. Pure white vessels make groupings of spiky green succulents (my favorite plants) really pop.

Yellow is the magic ingredient that really makes this color palette sing. It adds the perfect jolt of sunshine. Bright works of art in monochromatic shades are a great way to work yellow into a room, while accessories in neon hues give even the simplest ensembles an electric jolt.
