I read somewhere once that to add impact to monochrome themed rooms you should add a third accent colour, in my living room I’ve opted for a zesty lime green, but this could be dusty pink, grey, duck egg blue or even yellow!
I think black-and-white is such a timeless look, both in fashion and interiors. I am guilty of owning a very black wardrobe, I can’t help it – my excuse is that my accent colour is my blonde hair. But seriously I love the monochrome themes and stunning photography that lives on Pinterest. I probably spent (at least) two hours the other night addictively pinning gorgeous black-and-white themed rooms from bathrooms, offices to bedrooms and stunning living areas.
If I could paint our flat I would definitely be tempted to paint a wall black or invest in some monochrome wallpaper, I always feel when you change the colour of your walls it ups the ante and heightens the level commitment for the theme.
I am in love with the minimalist luxe look monochrome themes seem to ooze, here are just a few of my favourites knocking about on Pinterest.
Are you partial to the classic monochrome trend or are you all about bright colours?
