Matte black - it's here. And it's here in full force for home decorating and renovations in 2014 and beyond.
The colour has seen a sharp increase in popularity over the last six months or so for home fittings - particularly in tapware. Renovators, builders and decorators are now scrambling to match their tapware with their door hardware, too, for a complete and unified theme throughout their homes.
Like in clothing fashion, black is compatible with any other colour, as a complimentary provider of contrast and point of interest. Add the understated element of a matte finish and you have a look that makes a statement without detracting from a room's personality.
