STYLE IT DARK: Hottest Hashtag on Instagram
November 7, 2016 By Lynn Byrne
Style it dark is interior design’s version of chiaroscuro (the treatment of light and shade in painting). Designer Collin Robison, one of the leaders of the new trend, explains that he is drawn to contrasts in his decorating, often offsetting black or dark tones with white. When tackling the look, he advises pairing opposites: light and dark, items from nature with something polished like a mirror, rough with shiny textures, and the like.
