I’ve never been one for colour.
In fact, my flirtation with colour goes only as far as my fashion styling requirements for work over the last 14 years.
My wardrobe proudly boasts not an inch of bright colour. I remember wearing white to my first ever Mardi Gras party. And plain black to my 21st. My home is a blank canvas of white, only updated with neutrals that tempt me and trend-based patterns that occasionally catch my eye. My bed sheets are white, my valance is black. The kitchen is all white except for a stark black De Longhi kettle and toaster combo. And my car? Black…
It’s not that colour scares me. It’s more that the absence of colour calms me…
So it comes as no surprise that the interiors that resonate with me most are those with a crisp monochromatic palette. Some of the most elegant apartments I’ve set foot in have been void of bold hues . The timeless, minimalist approach is what I always remember.
Manhatten stripes, complicated geometric focal points, and character-filled art-deco trimmings- it’s all about the black and white.
Some time soon, I’ll be sharing the latest licorice home trimmings I’ve fallen in love with, that you can get your hands on too.
