Although the title 'colour' combos. is technically incorrect when referring to black & white as they are considered neutrals not colours, for the purposes of this post we'll forget the technicalities as to me they are colours just as much as grey, pink, yellow and blue are. However, the black & white thing is not something I've really been drawn to in the past but whether it's because there is a huge amount of lovely black & white products popping up all over the place it's hard not to find something you like, or because I'm liking the simplicity of it I'm not quite sure. Accessories wise, I'm usually all about the colour. I like plain white walls and adding colour to a room with furnishings and accessories that can easily be changed for a fresh look every now and then, but lately I'm feeling that lots of different colours are too busy and overwhelming. I think it's a sign I need to simplify my life (which may explain the need for a change of Christmas decor on my last post
), and that's exactly what I intend to do.
The run up to Christmas is always a whirlwind of excitement, shopping, partying and general rushing around like a headless chicken and I'm usually meticulously planning and obsessing over every fine detail to make sure everything is perfect, but this year for want of a better way of putting it, I really can't be bothered with all that! Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling all baa humbug about Christmas, I'm still looking forward to it and still getting organized, just taking a step back and not obsessing about things that are really unimportant and not what Christmas is supposed to be about. I'm not quite sure where 2016 will take me, but I feel a change is coming for sure. Over the weekend I've had a good sort out and tidy up in my little studio, I've de-cluttered and stripped the walls of all manor of things that have been stuck to them over time so it's back to a blank canvas ready for a fresh start in the new year and this little collection of black & white loveliness would fit right in with their clean uncomplicated look. They are simple, yet beautiful and I wouldn't be at all surprised if one or two of them found their way in to my life at some point in the future.
