With a lingering case of Jet Lag after my recent trip to the States, I am left wondering what day it is, what to wear, and what colors to gravitate toward. Designers back home are salivating over colorful new Spring collections, while here it is all about hunkering down for the “frigid” months ahead with your best wool blanket.
This confusing, “in between” feeling has me gravitating toward black and white interiors these days as an escape. I do not have to choose a color identity to love this look. The white brings the bright and the black a grounded comfort. It all goes back to juxtaposition for me: old with new, sleek with plush, hard with soft, traditional with contemporary, black with white. I love this look and it always works.
Whether you are donning your yellow polka dot bikini in the U.S. or sipping a hot tea by the fire in Oz, enjoy these visuals as a guide to this classic yin and yang look. It is a success year-round and around the world. Enjoy.
