    I don’t think black and white is ever out of vogue. It’s a constant more or less. Think the, “little black dress” every gal has. In decor, it’s neutrals that go with almost anything. Any framer will tell you that they sell as many black frames as any other. Black and white images are given a whole section in any print catalog as well, black and white photos, etchings, drawings. Maybe it’s hot or hyped today and old hat tomorrow but it will always be there.
