This project is about keeping a limited palette but mixing in different styles and textures. From African baskets, to surrealist pottery, traditional chairs and modern tables, the home feels collected. The space itself is like a white simple box, so I chose lots of textured materials. The suede pillows have different shades of beige to break up the pure black and white palette of the living room. The black square painting was painted by me as a reference to the Russian Suprematists of the early 20th century.
The living room needed a bold focal point so I used the canvas itself as a geometric shape. A gallery wall above the desk was a sort of refined inspiration board, with fashion images, vintage lithographs and modern photography. This apartment is about exploring different styles and materials within a black and white palette while softening the contrast with other tones.
