28 Oct Monochrome madness in the home
One of the major trends in home décor this year is monochrome. You may think that a black and white colour scheme is a bit bland and rigid for a home, but it can actually leave a very striking effect.
Ideal for decorating a room to leave a sophisticated, classic finish, black and white can be used to decorate any room in the house. Let’s take a look at how you can use monochrome in your home.
In the kitchen
This kitchen seen on realsimple.com proves that black and white doesn’t have to be boring. Using the black tiles to create a zigzag pattern adds a bit more style to the mix, which is accentuated further by the similarly shaped shelf. Choosing white for the wall and cupboard colour ensures that plenty of light fills the room, which is essential for a kitchen. Overall the room has a clean, crisp and professional feel to it. We’d be happy to cook here.
In the bedroom
Let’s face it; we all want our bedroom to be a place of calm, comfort and luxury. You don’t get more luxurious than hotel style, which is what drew us to this stunning black and white bedroom from housetohome.co.uk. Choosing multi-tonal black wallpaper adds an element of sophisticated luxury, while sticking to a black and white colour scheme adds uniformity and style.
In the living room
Choosing to display wall prints in black and white is a great way to add a striking effect to any room. In this living room seen on bhg.com, the black and white prints are the main focus of the room and stand out against the muted backdrop of the walls and clean white fireplace.
In the bathroom
We were mesmerised when we first laid eyes on this beautiful bathroom on redonline.co.uk. The combination of wood with the black creates an oriental feel. Choosing to hand a brilliant white bath towel over the black freestanding tub highlights the stark contrast between the colours. Keeping the majority of furniture and the walls jet black gives the room an overall professional finish – we can imagine seeing this bathroom in a fancy hotel or spa.
