Monochrome Madness

Dani shares her top 15 black and white interior products that are sure to add a bit of monochrome madness to your room.

Now you all know that I am a big fan of colour and sometimes even go a little OTT on the colour of my soft furnishings and decorative accessories. Lately though, I have a bit of a thing for monochrome, which I’m thinking has come off the back of the latest monochrome fashion trend as my wardrobe currently seems to be full of black and white.

Black and White can be so hit and miss, sometimes looking glamorous, cool and funky and other times looking just unoriginal and tacky. It doesn’t always have to be straight black and white though, a room can look fabulous with just a touch of it, say a cushion, throw or even just a monochrome rug.

I picked up a fab tan leather cushion from Country Road last year which I have had loads of fun mixing and matching with other styles and colours, most recently a neon pink Bonnie and Neil cushion. But I have long been eyeing off a great monochrome cushion from IKEA that I can’t wait to partner up with my tan leather cushion.

This got me thinking about what other products I could introduce into my interior to really get the monochrome theme happening and cure my current need for black and white.
