These two ’colours’ are always in style and don’t tend to date like those shades on the colourwheel.
Matt black is ultra modern and works well with marble for a simple and pared back look.
Feel that black could be a bit harsh? Cork softens the look, along with the addition of some greenery and a lamp which when turned on at night, casts a soft glow.
Another tip for softening the look is placing your favourite black and white objects on a timber surface. It’s not jarring like stone or concrete and gives a natural warmth to any setting.
