Monochrome Madness

When you really think about it, these are simple times we live in. Everyone has had to cut back a little and maybe you’re feeling that life is a little grey. In fact, it seems homes all over the country are getting back to basics and finding that life is actually a little more black and white!

It is one of the most versatile styles but also one of the simplest. Mixed with bold or even soft colours an element of black or white is a fantastic way to draw focus to an area of a room or even add a little drama to an otherwise dull setting. Take the ‘Broadstripe Wall Covering’ from House Couturier. Mix with any bright colour to really make a statement.

The black and white theme can be used in numerous patterns and styles. The ‘Black & White Brocade Pendant Lampshade’, £36 from hunkydoryhome, or the ‘Baroque Cushion In Black’, £25 (although on offer at £20 at the time of writing) from House of Fraser, for example, would add a touch of vintage chic to any room.

Also the ‘Black & White Shifting Sands Rug – Small’, £165 from Fairwind, will stand out beautifully against a white carpet.

In truth, monochrome works perfectly with most household accessories. The ‘Coffee Pot And Creamer’, £300 from The Old Cinema, will give your kitchen a real sense of arty sophistication, while the ‘Monochrome Standard Lamp’, £165 from The Baobab Tree, is a funky mix of rustic patchwork and timeless elegance.

Finish off the look by extending into the garden with the ‘Black And White Floral Watering Can’, £9.99 from HomeSense, and give your home the simple stylishness it deserves.
