If you are looking for monochrome decorating inspiration for your home we have lots of chic and elegant room designs for you to choose from. It works well with other colours, whether a pop of bright pink, or neutral hue. You can always create the mood that you like with a monochrome decorating scheme.

For a monochrome theme in the hallway, Victorian black and white tiles create a wonderful focal point, if you are not lucky enough to have original tiles it would be a fantastic long-term investment. Add a large mirror to reflect a feeling of light and space and complete the look with a shiny chrome coat stand.

From Art Deco-inspired designs to 1960s modernism and minimalist trends from the 90s to modern-day this decor is highly effective and has a timeless quality.

A traditional monochrome bedroom works really well mixed with the more muted shades of grey. A great bedroom idea could be to choose a backdrop of a geometric monochrome wallpaper and team with crisp white bedlinen. The design can be accessorised to great effect with a mohair grey throw and a pop of colour with a citrus cushion.

A monochrome home office is a great choice as it suits both male and female styles. Add extra interest to white walls with a large framed black-and-white print. Team this backdrop with a glossy black desk, an anglepoise lamp and an Eames sixties-style office chair.
