We love working with a monochromatic palette for both our interior design projects and property styling packages. So today on the blog we thought we’d share our top styling tips and product picks to help you create a monochrome interior for your own home environment!

A monochrome interior is one of the easiest design styles to achieve, with a focus on minimal colours and contemporary design. From fixtures and finishes to furnishing the space, keep reading for some of our favourite ways to style with monochrome.

Monochrome Feature Walls

Creating a feature wall using black or charcoal is one great way to make a statement with a monochromatic palette.

There’s a common misconception in the world of design that dark walls will make a room look smaller - but in actual fact, a black or charcoal feature wall can add depth and dimension to a space when used strategically.

We love seeing monochrome feature walls in living areas, bedrooms and even exterior elements like fencing or cladding.

Monochrome Fixtures & Finishes

Opting for black fixtures and finishes is another way to achieve a modern monochrome look throughout your home. Think about using black tiles or black grout in bathrooms for a sleek and contemporary look, or consider black cabinetry for kitchens and laundries.

Monochrome also pairs beautifully with metallic accents, so you might choose to contrast your black and white colour scheme with gold handles, tapware or lighting fixtures for a luxe, high-end design. Or, for a more relaxed and earthy look, consider timber finishes for benchtops and flooring.

Monochrome Artworks

Showcasing black and white artworks throughout the home will help you tie your styling together and create a harmonious flow between each room. We love modern black and white photography and abstract prints in statement frames for a bold and impactful look.

Monochromatic artworks are also easy to mix and match to create photo walls or galleries. Simply stick with black, white and grey prints and you can’t go wrong when it comes to pairing different artworks together!

Monochrome Textiles

Black and white can be quite a stark and sterile look on its own, and needs to be softened with textiles. Cushions, floor rugs and throws are essential for monochrome styling to ensure your home still feels cosy, comfortable and inviting.

Try to include some interesting textures to add depth and detail into your home design. Knitted throws, macrame wall hangings, beaded cushions and anything velvet will help to complement your monochromatic palette. It's all about using those layers to build on the base of your styling!

Monochrome Accessories

As always, it will be the finer details like homewares and accessories that will help to complete your overall look. Consider incorporating some earthy, neutral shades when it comes to decor like vases and candles - we love anything in metallic, rattan or terracotta to break up all of that black and white.

Botanicals are also a must to breathe some life into the space, so don’t forget to feature potted plants throughout the home and on benchtops and surfaces.
