Colour Palette: Fresh Ideas For Green & Black

1 | 2
Black. I suspect that it isn't the first colour you would associate with spring. Am I right? Well, I can understand why because whilst those noir hues are beautiful, they don't exactly feel fresh. That's until you start to pair them with lush green shades and crisp white base notes. Then we're talking a whole new ball game, folks! Take the left hand kitchen, where the palette of ash grey and black is punctured with a small handful of green and yellow accents, which add a sense of depth and energy to the richly coloured scheme. Similarly in the right hand kitchen, we see how the striking black and white palette is broken up by using greenery to soften the space. Have you combined black and green before? What are your top tips for decorating with this palette?

  5. I am a fan of black and white -or their close cousin grey - and bright colors... so fresh and lively especially if the colors are on the warm side of the color wheel!

  7. You're right Will - green definitely freshens up darker tones. Love that first room in particular :)

  10. I cannot get enough of black, white and green. Your inspiration photos are really appealing to me. I LOVE GREEN especially and pair it mostly with white and little punctuations of black. That first kitchen feels really rich and the second has a Scandinavian air about it. Very very nice.
