One style that never goes out of trend is Monochrome, as this look has stood the test of time both on the catwalks and in interiors. Whether it is styled with bold, contrasting colours or softened with hints of cream and grey, it is a design that requires little effect for maximum stylish impact.

Style monochrome the modern way

A modern way of styling the look is to include different and alternative textures. You don’t simply have to opt for a black or white carpet; consider using vinyl flooring for a super modern look. Choosing a patterned design can make a bold statement which can be paired down with the use of a plain rug, or introduce other colours through your choice of furniture and accessories. Alternatively, opt for black or white laminate flooring to combine texture and colour.

Cosy up with faux fur

Interior designer Diana Civil believes one way to soft the is to combine with another of this season’s trends – fur. “Faux fur and all things fluffy continues to be a huge hit on the catwalks. This has followed through into our homes with colourful fur cosying up and layering sofas, beds and floors – think alpine ski lodge teaming fur with chunky knit throws and natural materials on furniture and floors, or go glam with deep coloured throws in jewel like tones for a boho look.”

Diana is constantly inspired by catwalk trends, and believes fashion and interiors are a perfect match, “Inspiration for my interior design schemes comes from a wide variety of sources, in particular I always keep a close eye on the catwalks as there are plenty of ways in which we can translate designs from the collections into our homes.

For me, fashion and interiors goes hand in hand – the way we dress and how we decorate are both ways in which we express ourselves so the trend you choose is a great way of showcasing your style and personality in your rooms.”

Add a pop of colour

Monochrome doesn’t have to be boring – you can use the black and white theme as a blank canvas to throw your colour personality at. Choosing to use monochrome in your choice of soft furnishings and accessories such as curtains, rugs and cushions is also a great method of tying this look into an existing colour scheme.
