home: trend [ black and white ]
Monochrome is as popular as ever with high street stores and designers still loving the simplicity, easy coordination and extensive pattern options to create crisp modern interiors.
Whether you go for an even mix of the tones or go stronger on either black or white, it’s an easy colour palette to work with.
As dark interiors are so on trend we love the look of styling heavily black with highlights of white in framing, fabrics and ceramics. Black walls can make a fantastic backdrop for white accessories to really stand out. Keep the look modern with only occasional pattern and stick mainly to plain black or white in accessories and fabrics. For wall decor choose illustrative prints, linear designs, typography or black and white photography. Head to Desenio, Gayle Mansfield or A Room in my House for prints to suit the look.
