The trick here is to make two different styles meet somewhere in the middle. Luc prefers everything black, ultra modern, masculine and IT enabled with the latest technology. Elisa prefers a lot of bright light, white, hints of pastels, scandinavian cosy and functional.
The things in common are: we both don’t like clutter and we both prefer a modern urban style.
The first compromise came when deciding the colour scheme of the interior: Luc likes black, Elisa likes white. Voila! Black & White! ...Or White & Black? It’s harder than it seems.
We decided that the main colour will be white (on the walls and ceilings) and black will be a constant accent throughout the house (window frames, door knobs, accent tiles in the bathroom, floating shelves, worktops etc.)
We’ve tried to make a mood board and itemise everything we’d like to have in each room to see if they go together, but it is very difficult when the house is a work in progress and we don’t even have a floor to put things side by side and see the result.
For now it’s all in our heads and we hope it works. Any tips, ideas, advice are welcome! 😃
