The ultimate classic colour combination, black and white abstract paintings have been adorning our hallways, entryways and living spaces for years. Timeless, elegant, yet also bold and brave, these oversized artworks are the sophisticated statement piece that every large living space needs.
Adopted by some of the greats, from Jonathan Adler to Kelly Weartler, monochrome paintings are popping up everywhere and in a variety of interior styles.
The great thing about these chic artworks is that although they are increasingly popular, we can’t call them a trend, as they are timelessly chic and their impact has no end.
These powerful paintings can tie a room together in an already monochrome space, or if you are a lover of colour then these minimalist paintings are also a great way to rest the eye and create balance in a colourful room.
They add drama and command attention, and add a touch of modern sensibility to more traditional spaces.
