Think outside the box

Loosen up your interior design, by implementing a range of interesting and eclectic features. Black and white interiors don’t have to feel structured and can actually offer countless possibilities and options.
Take some cues from this brilliant dining space by Finish designer Susanna Vento. Here she has worked to create a space that feels engaging and exciting, while paying particular attention to unique and eye-catching adornments.

Go bold with black and white interiors

One of the best things about black and white design is definitely the ability to create bold and striking interiors. Look for colour blocked wallpapers, furniture items and plenty of interesting accessories.

We love the way this living room and bedroom space has incorporated attention-grabbing wallpaper, along with plenty of prints and motifs. To see more, head here and get some additional inspiration.

Dramatic details

As they say, the devil is in the detail. This couldn’t be truer for black and white interiors, which benefit greatly from pared-back aesthetics, and thoughtful accessorising. To illustrate our point, the image above presents a room that is both striking and highly alluring. Minimal in its approach, each element and feature has been well considered. From the light fittings to the art resting against the wall, this room ensures a feeling restfulness and tranquillity.

Tiles and architectural detailing

Tiles improve interior spaces tenfold, and when incorporated correctly, look simply fabulous. In this next set up, we see how an open plan kitchen has utilised a black and white colour scheme, while adding drama and life to the interior. Industrial in its style and approach, the wall tiles bring a heritage vibe to the room, while the large window is perfectly painted black to contrast the white colour palette.

Additionally, the twin light fittings look superb suspended over the cooktop, consequently imparting an eye-catching feature, as well as practicality.
