For too long feature walls have been the domain of bedrooms and lounge room. All that is about to change with sleek and modern feature walls starting to make an appearance in our bathrooms too. We love how the stylish black and white feature wall in this bathroom is accentuated by the neutral tones, modern lighting and marble flooring.
For a living room that really pops, monochrome stripes are the way to go. Keep to simple black and white cushions and furniture so as to not detract from the stripes. Adding wooden elements makes for a effortlessly stylish look.
For a kid-friendly kitchen with a difference, why not paint a black wall with chalkboard paint. This is a unique way that families can leave notes, reminders and messages for one another. This is a budget friendly option for bringing a modern and stylish edge to a room. We love how it screams cozy comfort.
Keeping the walls a simple white tone allows for you to experiment with including a range of black furniture in the room. This look exudes elegance while also allowing you to mix and match with varying patterns. This look works equally as well with vintage style interiors as it does in ultra modern homes.
