I love this as a colour combination. When I see black and white, it always makes me think ‘yellow!’ – to me yellow is the colour that works best against black and white. It’s that old story of opposites I guess; yellow is the liveliest, ultimate ’happy’ colour, so it’s the perfect accompaniment to sombre black. Doesn’t the yellow dress just bring that first pic to life? I need some yellow in my grey, rainy Monday! Have a g
Happy (late) start to the week! Today I’m loving these stylish twin bedrooms: not just for kids and (even when pushed together) not quite master bedrooms, twin beds are fantastic for kids who share a room, for kids who like to have sleepovers, and for flexible sleepng arrangements for adult guests. Like this yellow trellis and white design, two beds next to each other can serve a couple.

Also, there’s something pleasing about the symmetry of two single beds with a shared table in between.
Note the styling techniques employed here (above) to tie the two beds together; the striped rug running cross-ways to ‘connect’ the space, and the framed prints placed close together rather than directly above each bed.
This room (above) goes for height; tall matching black bedheads, a tall central lamp and ‘face’ plates hung vertically above the beds.
Sometimes single beds are the best way to work with tricky spaces, like this green and pink bedroom (above). A large bed would have cut off one of the windows, but the twin singles fit perfectly. Love that geometric rug and the green ikat blinds with pink trim!
Symmetry is magic (above). I like all these elements: black faux-bamboo bedheads, striped rug, x-benches and all that blue and white!
The gorgeous purple Madeline Weinrib rug ties this purple and white room together.
Have a Happy Tuesday!
