Colour Crush Part 2: BLACK & WHITE

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Colour Crush | No Comments

I remember my first day at university as if it was yesterday. I walked into my bedroom at my halls of residence and what I saw was probably the ugliest, darkest, most depressing room I’ve ever seen. A single oak bed on the left (with an ‘inviting’ brown and orange floral sponge mattress), brown 50’s style wardrobe (maybe just big enough to accommodate my T-shirts), grey vinyl tiled floor, white shiny stucco walls and the smell of Jeyes Fluid in the air. Enough to make any 1st year want to run back home. Well, I thought to myself, I have to deal with this design disaster for at least a year, so I can just as well make it work. I decorated my room in black and white art house movie posters, covering the whole wall so not an inch of stucco wall was visible. White bedding, black and white cow print scatter cushions (ok, it was the late nineties!), and with a few more tweaks,… voila! I had THE chicest bedroom on the whole campus. I loved it, and everyone else did too. Now, this could be one of the reasons why I use black and white so often. It is so simple, but always stylish and the perfect backdrop if you want to add some colour. (AND it helped me cope with 1st year student accommodation).
