Black and white a winner

BLACK and white continues to be the sophisticated leader in decor trends.

It's a winner because it's a look that's easy to live with, but this year must be warmed with flashes of bright colour from lemon to lime hues.

Suzanne Beechey, divisional homeware buying manager for Bhs, says: "The popularity of a monochrome colour palette has grown over the years. But to give the look more depth accessorise with bold colours. Lemons and limes really add a new dimension.

"Sharp lines and sleek detailing, bold geometric and even floral prints can also play a role in this versatile look."

Get the look: Bhs' Gloss collection features some monochrome classics, a black and white Jam dining chair, 150, sparkling white gloss Eloise table, 395, and Demure dinnerware from 5.

The Next range opts for a softer pairing of black with grey, while Matalan's range ticks all the right boxes for design and price. A Black butterflies duvet set is a snip at 22, double size.
