Mad About Monochrome

The next six months will see a rise of black and white in homes across the country. Black and white is a timeless style, but it is constantly being reinvented. It is also one of the easiest looks to achieve in your home.


A great style choice for minimalists, putting pale colours on the walls will keep your room feeling light and spacious, you can then add in hints of grey and black. We love these Voyage designer chenille handmade cushions.

Another way of embracing the monochrome trend is with the ombré effect. Choose one colour that you love and then choose a few more within the same tone. Start with the darkest colour at the bottom and work your way up to the lighter colour at the top. This is an effect that looks great on your walls, it can be seen a lot in Scandinavian style and keeps a room feeling cosy while keeping it simple. Express your personality with your fabrics, curtains can act as a focal point of the room, and if your decor is neutral, then you can afford to use bold patterns like our Lomasi Metallic Aztec fabric or our Vegas Geometric fabric.


Monochrome is undoubtedly mature and stylish, but it can become a little cold and unwelcoming. Keep the look cosy by teaming it with big knitted throws, several different textures and add some grey to your colour palette. If you want to break up the look a little more, consider using a splash of colour, gold can keep the look stylish. Use vases, picture frames or cushions to inject some brightness, these Bullseye design cushions are a great addition.
