Black is Strong, Bold, Masculine

We love black because it is an undeniably strong colour. Black also pairs well with every other colour under the sun, but more so with its polar opposite, white. Black evokes drama, contrast and a moodiness in interior design. Use it in subtle doses in your décor to bring depth to your space.

A black vase is a staple in the home. When you add colourful florals to a black vase, the tones pop against the dark vessel. This makes for a beautiful statement in any room. Add it to a bedside table or living room mantel for added detail and flair.

Choose bold black finishes and smaller accents like vases and bowls in dramatic black for added definition on a table or shelf.

Black is also a great focal point in a room. It’s a grounding colour that can anchor and add elegance at the same time. Achieve the look with black accessories – furniture trims, lighting, accents and more will add drama and enhance your space.

White is timeless, power, elegance

White often has the opposite effect of black in interior design. Instead of create a dark, moody and intriguing setting, it adds to a light, bright and open interior. A simple splash of white colour can thus dramatically brighten up a room and pop against darker accents.

As an achromatic colour, white reflects and scatters visible wavelengths of light. As a result, it makes a room feel brighter and lighter. In fact, it can even make a room feel larger and this is often why it is used on ceilings.

White looks beautiful when paired with black as it forms a stunning high contrast look. Go for simple black and white accents in your space to achieve the look.
