Beautifully Austere Rooms

Black paint and accessories add drama to crisp white bedrooms and baths.

Black and white is a favourite colour scheme for international stylist and photographer Pia Bijkerk, founder of the popular blog pia jane bijkerk. "It really does work magic, especially in the hands of Lyn Gardener, interior designer extraordinaire, who designed these spaces and has a flair for simple sophistication."
