8 new ways with monochrome

Sometimes things aren’t just black or white, they’re both! Here’s why you need to incorporate some monochrome into your home

1. Combine the two

There’s no need to choose either black or white – opt for standout cushions then display them on crisp white bed linen or a statement white chair. Instant chic.


2. Frame it

Choosing picture frames with an overly thick white border will not only make your photos stand out more but make them easier to see from a distance. Fact.


3. Put it in the spotlight

Black desk lamps can often look very office-like but opting for a retro design keeps your lighting chic and totally on point.


4. Statement pieces

Choosing statement accessories in monochrome means they not only co-ordinate with whatever’s around them but will work in any room, whatever the colour scheme. And who wouldn’t want a Dachshund on their mantelpiece?


5. Grey area

A room that’s completely black and white can feel a little stark, so add a cosy touch with the help of some warm greys, like this ultra snuggly throw.

Adding a chunky church candle into a minimally-framed lantern like this means you benefit from even more twinkling light.


7. Simple storage

When it comes to storage you want it to be practical in every sense of the word. This is not only divided into handy handled sections but as it’s white it will work in whatever room you want it to go in.


8. & finally
