Black and White

Often you will hear a photographer say that a photograph has to be in black and white because colour will confuse the detail. Buildings and face portraits are 2 of the areas that look great without too much colour. But you really need colour for a sunset or landscape. Get the picture?

The Timney Fowler New York is a perfect example of a fabulous Black and White print. And what an iconic skyline this is! Maybe a little busy for full length curtains but gorgeous as a roman blind.

The Florence Broadhurst Horses Stampede wallpaper dates back to the 1960's and is matt black on a silver scrim base. Not for the faint hearted decorator this paper,but oh so beautiful! Perfect for a feature wall, downstairs cloakroom or even a diningroom above the dado rail. Teamed with black velvet curtains I can really see this working together.
