There’s something about us Melbourne folk that makes us deck ourselves out in monochrome. Even those of us who occasionally have unusually coloured hair and aren’t afraid of bright, bold colours will often find ourselves stuck in the same old monochrome wardrobe. But that certainly doesn’t mean it has to get boring. When it comes to our decor, black and white homewares have fallen by the wayside lately in favour of trending patterns and softer colour combinations.
Well, I say phooey. Black and white can be sleek and bold. It looks amazing in a picture (even if the filter itself isn’t a black and white one) and even better in person. Plus, it won’t go out of style like other trends that may come and go. If you’re not one to go full monochrome then it will help to make your coloured accents pop and can assist in drawing the eye where you need it to be. Black and white homewares are guaranteed to look great year in and year out.
