Monochrome Interior Decor – Pinspiration

Posted on Jan 26, 2015 by

I’ve always been a big fan of monochrome interiors. There’s something very chic about a black and white scheme and it’s a combination that’s especially well suited to industrial style interiors. So this Monday Pinspiration post is dedicated to all things monochrome.

Even if you’re working with a small space, using black and white really ups the style ante.

This is a look that can work in any room of your home.

Keeping dark colours at floor level and painting the walls a brilliant white means this minimalist living room’s monochrome scheme is striking without feeling overbearing.

A monochrome scheme can be particularly striking in the more functional rooms of the house – rooms like the kitchen and bathroom. In the kitchen…

In this kitchen black appliances blend into the matt black units, which contrast beautifully with the sleek white subway tiles.

Here, a long run of sleek black units against a white painted brick wall has transformed an otherwise awkward space into a stylish kitchen. Two enormous industrial lights add further drama, and not to mention plenty of light, to the space.

Meanwhile, in the bathroom…

I love the dramatic black walls in this Manhattan apartment’s bathroom. Your eye is immediately drawn to the large shower enclosure with white subway tiles and steel-framed doors.

I don’t know about you, but I could spend many a happy hour scanning through property sites with my (sadly imaginary) unlimited budget. I love to imagine what I would do with some of the properties I come across. The huge open-plan lofts pinned below would lend themselves very well to a strong black and white decorative scheme.

What would you do with this space? Would you embrace a monochrome scheme? I think it’s a perfect blank canvas!

I think this huge open loft space in Chicago has huge potential. And with those huge windows you could really embrace a darker scheme with confidence.
