Black and white never dates. There’s something about the simplicity that never goes out of style; sophisticated, irrepressible and versatile, there’s a reason why monochrome forever reigns on the catwalk and in interiors. Its simplicity is its selling point; this understated palette offers so many different styles to play with, from minimalistic white with black accents, to daring black with flashes of white for a real statement, it just works.

Monochrome also lends itself especially well to patterns, traditional motifs, floral designs, playful polka dots and on-trend animal prints – anything goes! And that’s why we love it.

A dark floor oozes confidence and style. Modern, minimalist and oh-so-cool, industrial chic is having a moment. Embrace the dark side and throw down an on-trend chevron rug to add stylish warmth to the space – darker floors look particularly impressive in larger rooms. Keep the monochrome scheme consistent throughout for extra style points.
