MONOCHROME IN YOUR HOME
Bold and minimalist, monochrome interiors are incredibly versatile and stylish. Incorporate the timeless chic of black and white into your home easily with soft furnishings, decorative objects and accessories.
Any colour is the perfect compliment for monochrome, making it super easy to accessorise. Adding a third accent colour to any black and white themed room instantly adds impact, whether this is fuschia, lime green or aqua blue. Adding a pop of colour in cushions, lighting or rugs instantly revives any black and white themed room and can be easily interchanged for an inexpensive way to update your décor. Remember, chose just one accent colour so as not to distract from the theme. The quickest and most cost effective way is to chose colourful flowers or plants and add them your space.
PRINTS AND PATTERNS
Using such a simple colour scheme allows for a variety of textures, prints and patterns to be incorporated into your décor. Accessorise your living room with a mix of coordinating patterned fabrics, decorate your bedroom with bold striped walls and chevron bedding – don’t be afraid to experiment and mix things up.
A monochrome room can easily be styled using simple accessories, finishing the overall style of your room. Black and white accessories create a polished look, gold accents add a touch of luxe and marble accessories add a stylish edge. Stark white walls are the ideal backdrop for framed black and white photographs – try using simple frames in varying sizes.
Monochrome is ideal for layering. Layer your bed with a black or white throw and plumped patterned cushions – you could also add an initial cushion for a personalised touch. Cushions and throws can be used in most living spaces so experiment with these monochrome accessories in any of your living spaces.
