Black is back: How to decorate with the color black

LESS IS MORE

- The key for black to stand out and not overwhelm is to avoid saturation. Yes, to the compositions of sheets and photographs in black and white, but always in a number and a surface proportional to the space. Yes to the black carpets, but with a touch of white enough to illuminate it.

Bicolor Cocktail

In textile complements, black & white geometries are razed by their attractive contrast and strength. And it is that black turns all motives into protagonists, since it highlights and shapes them. The variety of prints and designs invigorates the decoration, as when several colors are combined, although there are only two in this color palette. Cushions, by Maisons

(from € 19.90 each) and Quito bank (€ 180).

With the cushions that combine different fabrics, a print - prints with motifs are taken to
different scale- and another smooth, it is easy to renew the decoration with just a flip. These disparate chiaroscuro games create different looks.

Risk and hit!

the looks, but it is convenient to counteract his sobriety and reduce his strength with other colors that bring nuances and sensations, such as stone gray, so serene, or white, pure luminosity.

of gold.
