Beyond basic black + white: Pond, Sydney Australia


As much as I'm often drawn in by bright vivid colours, whenever I see a pared down neutral space done well, something inside me just says 'Yes!' Call me monotonous and boring, it may be a fate I just have to accept, but basic black and white uplifted with metallics and natural accents just make me happy. I can't help but (quite literally) come home to them every time. I came across an email in my inbox the other day that I'd sent to myself with a link to this feature in Est magazine, entitled simply with an exclamation  mark. After clicking on it, I immediately fell right back in love with this beautiful shop in Sydney, Australia. Pond is a fashion and homewares boutique owned by Liz Leuchars with a  pared down aesthetic that is a testament to the power of restrained good taste. Nothing in this space seems fussy or overwrought. Just understated, elegant and timeless.

I have to agree that sometimes we do need that tinge of neutral hues alongside pure black and white to release that aura of serenity. Colours do stimulate our positive and happy moods, but too much of them could make us tense. I really adore the concept how the storage shelvings are white on one side and black on the other. It provides a unique contrast and does not make the entire place dull for being too plain with only a single tone.
