We’ve fallen prey to the seductive power of white-on-black. There’s no denying it – that James Treble has got some serious magnetism. Are you tempted?
Here are five (more) reasons to master the monochrome.
BLACK + WHITE TRANSCENDS STYLE TRENDS
With each season we’re introduced to new colour trends. For some, their moment in the sun will be but brief. The black and white palette, however, rises above the on-trend. It exudes an elegance that’s both versatile and timeless.
WHITE-ON-BLACK SUBVERTS EXPECTATIONS
The simple reversal of white against black reinvents this classic scheme. It introduces fresh drama into your interiors. Against the black feature wall, the Noah Cloud Armchair becomes arresting, its pristine white colour both crisp and comforting.
WHITE-ON-BLACK WORKS WITH ACCENTS IN ALL COLOURS
Whether rust-reds or wintry blues are your bag, white-on-black can accommodate. Temper its contrast with everything from burnt orange to chartreuse or indulge in the fifty shades of grey.
WHITE-ON-BLACK IGNITES GRAPHIC, GEOMETRIC AND CULTURAL DESIGNS
Not only does white-on-black collude with all the things in the colour spectrum, it creates striking results with pattern. James has worked in a Moroccan element in our decadent bedroom, but this could just as easily be Aztec, Day of the Dead, Japanese, the list goes on…
IT’S EASY TO UPDATE
So this look doesn’t have a use-by date. That doesn’t mean we won’t feel like giving it, say, a minor refresh from time to time. 😉
“The best thing about black and white is that everything goes with it,” James says, “so you can change minimal accessories and revamp your look daily, weekly, seasonally.”
So there you have it! Five reasons to finesse your space with white-on-black. Elegant. Edgy. European. Eclectic. Take your pick.
The choice is yours. Design your life.
