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.
Quick-Step Livyn LVT in Black Slate
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.
Charcoal coloured carpets
They say grey is the new black and who are we to argue? Modern yet classic, contemporary yet timeless, this new neutral is dominating homes up and down the country – grey flooring has never been so popular. The softness of this gentle hue complements a modern monochrome scheme effortlessly – so be daring with black and white walls, the grey carpet will be there to soften the look.
Mardi Gras 95 Dots vinyl
We’re all about having fun with flooring – and a great, low-cost way to experiment is with a vinyl. Low-maintenance, easy-to-clean and suitable for wet areas such as kitchens or bathrooms, patterned flooring is one of the easiest ways to add personality and flair to your home. Simple monochrome dots will work in any style kitchen, but it really comes into its own when used in a super-modern monochrome one.
Kenilworth Wilton Carpet in Grey Motif
Add some period charm to your home with an eye-catching motif patterned carpet. Bold, unapologetic and determined to make a statement, let a dramatic floor like this do all the talking and keep furniture, décor and accessories simple. Enhance the dark pattern with a moody hue on the wall and go for white furniture and gold accents for a little splash of glamour.
