Home Fashion 2014: Black & White

Bold, geometric black and white is a hit this Spring 2014 season, from fashion designers such as Stella McCartney, Chanel, Missoni, Jil Sander and Fendi.

This classic palette can make the same impressive statement at home.

White walls, for example. They’re ba-ack!

L.A.-based designer Betsy Burnham describes white as the “ultimate palette cleanser”. “I used to think white walls looked unfinished,” she says. “It gives every space — even the most traditional — a modern edge, and sets the stage wonderfully for layers of color in upholstery, accessories, area rugs and art.”

Black and white has been a popular combination in Europe, but Denise Turner, color forecaster and founder of Color Turners has noticed that it’s making its way across the pond. Turner suggests it will take over entire rooms and recommends pairing it with hot accent colors for the latest look.

What do you think? Love it or hate it?
