When it comes to making a big impression, the stark contrast of black and white is the only way to go

 Outfit your kitchen countertops with the help of Compac Stone or line your bare walls with the finest of wallpapers from Farrow & Ball and your space will be well edited, and well loved; for a long time.

Dressing your nest involves the same kind of innate understanding of your own personal taste as does, say, dressing yourself; except changing happens less frequently. It’s important, to that end, to choose home appointments that will make the statement you desire, while standing the test of time. A never-fail approach involves implementing the powerful contrast of black and white elements for a classic look that’s not only clean and current, but timeless. Of course style is always up to your discretion: For modern pieces look to showrooms like Luminaire; for the opulent, choose mosaics by Bisazza; and for traditional pieces with sleek lines look no further than Baltus or Tui Lifestyle. Fabrications are also half the battle. Outfit your kitchen countertops with the help of Compac Stone or line your bare walls with the finest of wallpapers from Farrow & Ball and your space will be well edited, and well loved; for a long time.
