When it comes to dec­o­rat­ing your home, it’s as sim­ple as black and white. Stick to clas­sic mono­chrome for a clas­sic and ef­fort­lessly chic look

When it comes to colour co-or­di­nat­ing for any­thing, whether it be in­te­rior de­sign or fash­ion, there is no com­bi­na­tion that works quite as well as black and white.

Opt­ing for decor in a monochro­matic scheme cre­ates a con­tem­po­rary yet time­less look of so­phis­ti­ca­tion that works with any fu­ture ad­di­tions to your home.

But while some peo­ple may per­ceive monchrome to be montonous, it doesn’t have to be.

With the right com­bi­na­tion of tex­tures and de­signs, along with a good bal­ance of the two shades, you can take a room from ba­sic to beau­ti­ful.

Start with your foun­da­tion fur­ni­ture such as a clas­sic sofa and build from there.

Opt for a bal­ance of 40 per cent white and 40 per cent black, with 10 per cent grey mixed in to add a lit­tle ex­tra di­men­sion.

Com­bine dif­fer­ent tex­tures such as mar­ble, tim­ber and wool, as well as a va­ri­ety of prints in the same scheme for added in­ter­est.

Fi­nally, utilise the power of met­als for a pop of ‘colour’ and a hint of glam­our.

A chrome vase or cop­per fea­ture light can add a great focal point and re­ally lift this look.
