Why black, white and gold are the go-to colours in interiors

ANN/THE STAR – Netural colours remain the go-to for many interior designers. Why?
Because they blend well with other colours and provide an ideal foundation off of which to build a colour story.

The combination of black, white and gold is a winner for those looking to achieve a warm, neutral and luxurious look.

Here are some top tips for making the most of this modern colour combination.

2. Do bring in elements of gold when looking to make a bright pop of colour.

3. Do use solid colours of black and white for main upholstery pieces such as sofas and chairs to create a foundation for a colour palette.

4. Do repeat the combination of black, gold and white throughout the same space for cohesion.

5. Do bring black, white and gold into a space through the use of portable design elements such as toss pillows, accessories and even lighting.


1. Don’t use too much of the same colour in a single space. Instead, look for ways to create contrast.

2. Don’t use dark tones or colours in spaces that don’t get a lot of natural light.

3. Don’t overlook the opportunity to introduce colour through the use of lighting such as chandeliers and table lamps.

4. Don’t overcrowd a space with too many furniture elements. Remember, less is more.

5. Don’t forget to add organic elements such as greenery to make a space feel warm and inviting.
