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. Image courtesy of emmas.blogg.se
This is a look that can work in any room of your home.
This monochrome loft bedroom has a strong industrial chic look. I love the collected prints above the bed. Styling by Pelia Hedeby. Image via nordicbliss.co.uk

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. Image via style-files.com
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. Image via indulgy.com
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. Image via desiretoinspire.net
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. Image courtesy of domainehome.com
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! Image via diariodesign.com
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. Image via homedsgn.com
