Monochrome interiors: how to create a cool space with black and white home accessories

Posted by for Home

Add a touch of monochrome magic to your homes with these chic home accessories for every room in your house. 

Monochrome is one of those interior design trends that never fails to impress. And this is why it’s the perfect addition to any room in the home. There’s something about the simple, elegant combination of black and white that makes it so aesthetically pleasing. Whether it be block colours together or prints such as gingham, checks and stripes, it’s the winning duo that never fails. The best thing is, you can also play around with shades and add in creams, beiges and more neutral tones to make the look less statement, depending on your personal taste. 

Either way, you can’t go wrong with monochrome, which is why we’ve put a carefully curated edit of the homeware that’ll work in every room in your house. From the new Anissa Kermiche mini vases to unique artwork from Drool that’ll update the simplest of walls to the Tekla Scandi towels that’ll make any bathroom complete. 

Here we’ve found the best monochrome homeware that’ll add a hint of chic into your space, no matter your interiors style.
