Who doesn’t like either black or white hues? Even if you’re a big fan of colours, you still probably either wear or introduce one of these colours into your daily life, in clothes, in interiors, and even in food 😉 (Salt & Pepper at least!)

If you use patterned fabrics, complement them with plains and textures.
