PUT IT TOGETHER
> Sticking to a black and white palette gives you the freedom to mix patterns and tones. Here we have used black, grey and white towels sporting a range of designs, textures and edgings.
> Layer it up. To make a pattern or design stand out even more, place a plain-coloured mat or rug underneath as we have done here.
> Matte finishes are popular and are readily available in bathroom accessories and tapware. A matte piece will add a modern, upscale look and an effective finishing touch, especially in black. Here we have featured a matte black towel rack, tumbler, laundry hamper and mirror along with a matte white pendant light.
> Make your accessories pop. If you have a mainly white base – white tiles and walls, for instance – add more black pieces. If your base is darker, use more white.
> When setting up your bathroom, spread tones throughout the space, rather than clustering too many black things or white things together.
