The elegance of black window frames and white walls

Recently, I have been experimenting a lot with with the use of black and dark greys on walls. The results are a topic of an entire blog, but what I have learnt is that it can be a very difficult look to live with and pull off, especially if a room doesn’t have a lot of natural light. If you are interested in moving away from the safe (aka boring) white-on-white look  and shaking things up then try painting your window frames dark.

Crisp white walls with contrasting black window frames can make an otherwise monochromic room look stunning. I am particularly enamoured with the contemporary edge of black industrial metal frames. It is a technique I am going to use for an office refurbishment project on which I am currently working.
