I am a lover of color as a way to add depth and texture into a space. However, it can also be done using a monochromatic scheme. And one can never go wrong with black + white in design, art, architecture, the list goes on. The Italian brand Slamp teamed with Zaha Hadid for lighting, and the results are fantastic. More on lights, love the Tom Dixon lamps featured in Martin Lodby's photograph for Fashionable Living by Maja Munthe Tokujin Yoshioka's Sparkle for Kartell is a great play on crystal. Although not black or white- I couldn't resist including a butterfly chair from brick house. Enjoy!
