Your home doesn’t necessarily need to be full of colour to look great. Monochrome décor is a great option whether you want to create something more contemporary and something classic. Here are some great ideas to help inspire your home.

Dramatic Flair

Create a dramatic setting in your monochrome space by using classical elements such as black chandeliers and a plain coloured sofa with gorgeous patterned and textured cushions. Add some extra sophistication to the room by adding silver table accessories or furniture.

Play with Textures

Ensure that your monochrome space doesn’t look too bland by playing with patterns and textures. Be bold and mix diverse patterns in your fabrics, upholstery and wallpaper for an engaging take on the black and white room. Add contrast by using wooden floors and accent colours in your pillows. You can even create extra texture by selecting a table lamp with a pleated lamp shade.

Monochrome Bathrooms

Create a defining effect on your monochromatic bathroom by focusing on black frames and black moldings on white interior elements. Black and white is ideal for this space as it exudes a clean and neat ambience with the straight long lines. The striped flooring gives a wide illusion to this small space. You could recreate something like this using a striped rug or just replacing the flooring in a white decorated bathroom. If your bathroom moldings are white you could implement an art deco mirror to bring through the clean lines.

Black Accent Wall

Magnify the elegant and bold features of a monochrome dining room by incorporating a daring black wall as the focal point of the area. Pick a matte and unsaturated shade of black to go with the wooden dining table and chandelier. Also, why not include polished concrete floors to add flavour to this black and white space.
