I’ve been obsessed with monochrome prints ever since I re-covered this stool in black and white ‘Zambia Zig Zag’ fabric. I love the geometric African and Ikat-inspired prints and we all know I go crazy for anything retro modern. And black and white – it goes with everything! There’s not a single colour scheme that won’t look awesome with the addition of a funky monochrome print.*

[* I have not actually tested this theory.]

The Brady range at Habitat is feeding my B&W appetite particularly well right now (how cute is the hot water bottle?). I also spotted this Lagom giftwrap on Print & Pattern. It costs £1.50 a sheet and you can buy it HERE.

Come to think of it, I have three white Ikea Forjoha wall boxes at home. Hmm, I feel a project coming on…
