The Foundation of Art Begins with the Black and White Colour Combination
Scandinavians didn't just wake up one day and decide that Black and White would be their favourite colour combination. There are a myriad of reasons as to why this particular combination is so popular in the Nordics. One major reason is, of course, the versatility and ease of combining the two: the combination is effortlessly classy and never goes out of style.
However, if you're looking to combine multiple collections (which we totally approve of), you might want to take a look at some of our other colour collections. Creating a sophisticated design in your home’s living areas is the key to a harmonised interior and this can definitely be achieved through the use of black and white alongside another colour or two.
Worried that adding colour will overpower your minimalist styling? Fear not! Adding a bit of colour will definitely not destroy your efforts. On the contrary, why not try combining our black and white posters with a pop of red to really add a bit of fun to your walls. By doing so, you’re definitely not breaking any minimalist rules!
If you are not feeling bright colours, why not try pastels. These colours have become crucial to minimalist design due to their muted pops of colour and combined with Black and White is the perfect colour palette for any interior. Try using a light purple or pink set against black and white to bring colour into your home, but in a subtle way.
The History of Minimalism and Monochrome in Art
Historically, artists used to utilise as much colour within their work as possible, however, the 20th century brought with it the Minimalist Movement: a style of design that is still being embraced to this day. In our fast-paced world, embracing such a simplistic yet refined colour combination can really be the remedy that allows us to flush out all the external noise and feel at ease within our home surroundings.
Within the film world, black and white movies are seen as a great artistic approach that mirrors the films from Hollywood’s Golden Age, allowing a filmmaker to really play with light and colour. Black and white photography is also receiving a resurgence as this particular form of art captures the true essence of a subject. And in Scandinavia, black and white design is crucial to the Nordic dress sense: you will find people wearing the outfit combination at all times of the year.
And for good reason. The combination is timeless! You'll never have to be worried about doing too much or too little with black and white. This combination is really Goldilocks of design, it is just right.
