13 black and white pieces you might enjoy

fornasetti box

I don’t have the discipline required to decorate a monochromatic room, but I’ve always wanted one. So I throw a couple of black and white items into the mix and call it good enough. I’m crazy for this op art-ish Fornasetti box.

adler vase

White flowers would look really elegant in this vase.

mari plate

This concentric dots print is one of my favorite Marimekko patterns, and it looks especially right on this plate.

adler box

Another box, this one not quite as pricey as the one above, while still managing to be not exactly cheap.

baking dish

Such a cute little baking dish, and it’s cheap, cheap.


This placemat almost looks like it has a quilt pattern.

floor mat

This vinyl floor mat cleverly mimics a Moroccan rug.

seagrass basket

A good sturdy basket for your whatnots.

duvet cover

The half-moon print on this duvet cover would look good with matchy-clashy pillows.

missoni towel

A couple of Missoni hand towels would spiff up any bathroom.


A nice, clean-lined canister, the likes of which I keep meaning to buy.

jensen clock

I like the idea of a kitchen clock, and this one from Georg Jensen is so appealingly spare.

mari mug

And finally: a cute little cheerful mug.

    Because Ned(my beau) has so much monochromatic art we stick to a very neutral pallet which is fine by me. I love color, but I need to exist in a space that is calm which a black/white/grey environment provides for me.

    I think these are all splendid choices.

    I love boxes, like those you featured, to store TV remotes so they’re out of sight. And I follow the decor rule: “Always have one black thing in a room.” It works!
