Colour

Mixing natural timbers with a black, white and grey palette will create a neutral background for your home.  Add a big rustic timber table with white chairs, they don’t have to match.  You can have different chairs and paint each of them white.  Finish off your dining space with a black pendant light.

Kitchens

Open shelving filled with white serving pieces will give your kitchen an instant update. A white farmhouse sink mixed with white cabinets and a black island bench are perfect for creating a modern country kitchen.  We love the mix of black and white cabinets and timber flooring used in this kitchen from Cottonwood Interiors.

Add decor pieces to your kitchen such as white jugs filled with fresh flowers.
