Trend We Love: Black Brush-Stoke Patterns
Clockwise from top left: A.L.C. dress ($625), Frances Palmer platter ($225), Alistair and Blair Clarke's Manhattan home (photo: Patrick Cline/Lonny), West Elm art work ($249) Gravel & Gold duffel bag ($300), Mod Pieces pillow cover ($50)
The already bold contrast of black on white gets amped up when done in a painterly brush-stroke motif. If you're not ready to go big—like Alistair and Blair Clarke did on the walls of their Manhattan home—try it on a smaller scale with throw pillows, framed artwork or serving pieces.
