6. Location: Melbourne, VictoriaWhy we love it: The repetition of white marble-clad volumes emphasises the luxury of this relatively small kitchen area. A great example of using this material to raise the stature of a space.
1. Black, white and greyThe contrast of black and white has been a much loved colour combination both in fashion and interiors. Although the contrast of black and white is strong, it’s still a very easy scheme to live with. A black and white scheme can be brightened with various coloured accessories that can easily be changed as you tire of them. Black is a strong tone that creates big impact, so if you have a small space, use it sparingly. Consider a glossy finish for your black surfaces; this will help to bounce light around the room and make the black feel less heavy.
