Trend Update: Monochrome Home

As we move swiftly towards Christmas, the sea of bright red festive paraphernalia is no longer appearing in subtle waves. At this point in December, homes everywhere are awash with the ostentatious pillar-box shade. Albeit festive, we’re guessing the minimalists out there are struggling to keep it together. Rejoice, dear minimalists, for we have the answer: monochrome (your relieved sighs are almost audible).

Whether you want to smarten up the house in time for visiting guests, or create a chic respite from the family home – where mum has gone slightly OTT with the tinsel – nothing looks cleaner than chic, black and white. Moving on from the predominantly tribal inspiration behind previous monochromatic trends, this season signals a shift toward expressionism and abstract mark making.

Think about layering up bedding choices to add texture, if you find the linear look too austere for your space. Solid black, white and grey textile choices will act as a bold break between the busier prints, keeping things neat.

This interior direction spans all key areas, including candles and decorative accessories (like our candle jars, and mini storage drawers, above). If plain and simple is your aim, keep your finishing touches nominal with pillar candles and plain-dye scatter cushions.

Geo-prints, polka dots, and rectilinear scoring breathe pattern into this simple trend, using accessories as a vehicle to do so. These pieces are perfect for those who want to keep things monotone, without venturing down the colour-blocking route.

Call us scrooge, but the gleaming gold and garish green synonymous with the festive season isn’t for everyone. If your desire for clean lines and sharp contrasts exceeds your love of baubles, we’ve got some alternative hangings and decorations just for you. Our selection of wall art features prints, Instagram-ready quotes, and frames begging to be filled with your fave photos (shot in black and white, no doubt).

Don’t panic, if you’re a minimalist who loves Christmas (a rare breed), seasonal shades will still sit against this look with ease – that is the beauty of black and white, after all.


And if you’re looking to carry this trend through into spring, or even summer, use acid brights – like orange, green, and fuschia – to accent your home. For an interior focus with longevity, monochrome is the way to go. But then, you knew that already, right?
