Interior Design Trends - Monochrome Interiors

The Monochrome look is certainly a striking one! Using the full range from black to white incorporating a wide range of soft or bold greys in between. 
Minimal white or grey walls act as the perfect base for a pared-back Scandinavian look and black walls create a spectacular backdrop that can provide a cosy feel.

Try choosing a black, white or grey furniture as the base for your monochrome look. Build on this with bold black & white home accessories.

When working with a limited colour palette, it is important to incorporate contrasting materials and textures to keep the scheme warm and inviting. Layering is key, keeping the look fresh and contemporary whilst adding comfort.

As well as using varying textures, mixed materials can also depth to your room. Wood brings a natural warmth to deep blacks and crisp whites.

Plants & foliage can really bring a monochromatic scheme to life. Gorgeous greenery will add a touch of colour to your room too.

For a modern & contemporary feel, introduce some metallic lighting into your Monochrome scheme. Black and copper are an awesome pairing or go for white and gold - a match made in heaven!

A gallery wall is an easy introduction to the monochrome trend, especially if you don’t want to commit to tiles or walls. Use a variety of shapes and sizes for a stunning display or go bold and display multiples of duplicate prints together.

Introduce a pop of colour for stand-out style. Zesty yellow is HOT right now and looks great in a monochrome interior scheme.
