Diane Keaton is the queen of a black-and-white color scheme. Though this is most prominently featured in her wardrobe, the actress's love of a monochromatic pairing extends to her outlook on interior design. Keaton debuted a dining room space that makes the classic color combination look brand new.

Keaton's dining room idea features a natural wood, rustic farmhouse table surrounded by contemporary, black dining chairs. In the background, a white wall juxtaposes with black, straight-lined windows. Three white pendant lights with a single black stripe hang over the center of the table for a stylish and balanced look. Overall, the decor creates a black and white dining room that feels both warm and modern, a difficult balance to strike.

This successful contemporary look is in large part due to the dining room lighting. The pendants featured in the space are from Diane's Keaton Industries x Aidan Gray collaboration fro Perigold . Keaton's collection celebrates her signature colors on a variety of patterned, often bucket-like hanging lamps. Each one feels modern with a twist: whether it's a raffia hanger or a surprising marbled pattern. It's one of the best celebrity home brands on the market right now.

Aside from providing timeless style, Keaton's lamps and the dining room look to tap into one of the biggest interior design trends of the minute: a modern farmhouse with a twist. Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens, states: 'Diane Keaton creates a modern farmhouse look in this space through the combination of white walls with the wooden table. It strikes the perfect balance between rustic and contemporary.'

However, it isn't all modern farmhouse. Ebert continues, 'The addition of black, contemporary lines to the modern farmhouse scheme adds a more avant-garde, interesting touch. Diane's originally designed pendant lights bring in a rounded shape with more black for another contemporary touch. It's at once modern farmhouse and something with a bit more edge.'

Whether it's by adding one of the Keaton Industries x Aidan Gray lamps to your home, or incorporating a mix of styles, it's easy to make a black-and-white color scheme more interesting. Diane Keaton provided the blueprint.
