Style series: Monochrome

Mad about monochrome!

Yep, here’s another trend that’s leapt from the catwalk to our home styling. I’m always really drawn to black and white – whether it be in my wardrobe or interiors, it’s a look that I love. It’s so easy but super chic!

Our recent spare bedroom update had more than a touch of the monochrome about it, but with a few touches of biscuit and gold added in to warm it up.

Here’s my monochrome confession – I’m totally in love with the Stokholm Rand rug from Ikea at the moment. Can you be in love with a rug? I don’t know yet if I could or would use it in the extension, but it’s staying on my love list anyway.


Here are a few other looks that have really caught my eye…

I think if you’re bold it’s a look that you can easily adopt. I’m thinking black paint, some simple accessories like picture frames or a strong piece of furniture. On the other hand black and white can work even in colourful rooms – throw in a few accessories to tone down all of the different shades.

If you don’t want to go the whole hog, here are a few of my picks that you can incorporate into your existing schemes.

So, any black and white additions that you’d like to add to your interiors? I’d love to know what you think!
