Black and White | Elle Decoration South Africa

Having spent the last few weeks working on our Fashion Issue 98 (on shelf 14th July), we spent a lot of time looking at the relationship between fashion and decor trends. From catwalk to couch, both sets of trends arise from similar social and economic needs. It therefore follows that similar ‘looks’ emerge.

Taking inspiration from our intern Emma’s outfit today -classically simple, clean lines, monochrome and crisp- we show you how to recreate the look at home.

Monochrome interiors are the perfect base on which to play. Once you have established your neutral base, you can add different colours, textures and pieces each season to keep the space fresh.
