Black. I suspect that it isn’t the first colour you would associate with spring. Am I right? Well, I can understand why because whilst those noir hues are beautiful, they don’t exactly feel fresh. That’s until you start to pair them with lush green shades and crisp white base notes. Then we’re talking a whole new ball game, folks! Take the left hand kitchen, where the palette of ash grey and black is punctured with a small handful of green and yellow accents, which add a sense of depth and energy to the richly coloured scheme. Similarly in the right hand kitchen, we see how the striking black and white palette is broken up by using greenery to soften the space. Have you combined black and green before? What are your top tips for decorating with this palette?

  1. I love the combination of black and green! I am working on the interior where everything turned into the scheme “white-black-green”. Thanks for inspiration!

  2. Great images, great colour combo…the kitchen looks lovely and fresh despite the black wall -thanks to the green white and yellow of course

  3. I am a fan of black and white -or their close cousin grey – and bright colors… so fresh and lively especially if the colors are on the warm side of the color wheel!

  4. The green really works wanders in a black & white pattern!!
    Your blog is always an inspiration to me!

    Big hugs!


    PD: I use same gorgeous pics of Bright Bazaar previous posts in my Simply Striped post today. I hope you like it!.

  5. ooohhhhh LOVE black and green together. I am already converted. Thanks for the gorgeous pics! (and for stopping by my blog to say hi! ) KG xx

  6. oh wow… i hadn't considered pairing green with black (i do so love it with brown or pink, though). but it actually really pops! you've converted me; i'm a fan. 🙂

  7. I cannot get enough of black, white and green. Your inspiration photos are really appealing to me. I LOVE GREEN especially and pair it mostly with white and little punctuations of black. That first kitchen feels really rich and the second has a Scandinavian air about it. Very very nice.

  8. Really like this! I think black paired with the right colour can always look suitably spring like- love the green.

  9. Looking great with Black and Green Combination! It's really looking well furnished.
    Loved this idea! Thanks for sharing such fresh ideas.

  10. absolutely!! You might have just inspired me to decorate my balcony this year with Kelly Green! I already have a black and white rug and grey geometric prints for seat cushions. Now may the the hunt for the perfect green fabrics begin!
