Happy Monday! A clean and clear start to the week and nothing's clearer than, quite literally, than putting something in black & white. We're seeing this trend grace Interior land in all forms so we've picked our favourite accessories to inspire your monochrome zone.
Why you can trust Ideal Home
We love Jonathan Adler's homage to the punk era in the form of their fab Mohawk salt & pepper shakers (£40). A stylish way to add a little fun to dinnertime.
To add a modern monochrome feel to your bedside table or workspace, the Colore black metal table lamp (£30, Habitat) is just the right balance of chic and functionality.
Cream of the crop
Hailed, in our May issue, for her ability to bring a warm femininity to a blend of artistry, geometry and technical prowess even down to finest of details like this creamer, exclusive to The Conran Shop (£42).
Simple and chic, this monochrome cushion from Sainsbury's (£15) sports a woven design to add a little craftsmanship to your chaise longue.
Great for lighting an outdoor stairway or hanging in the garden, check out the lighthouse lantern from Zara Home (£39.99).
Get whisked away to the calms of Kyoto with the Loen armchair which combines modern design with historical imagery of the Geisha in the Kimi Weave charcoal print (£649, M&S).
Fun and functional, this bath mat (£6.99, H&M) brings a little history of bathing together with a modern monochrome.
A soft Zebra-like stripe makes these Biba monochrome vases a cool contrast on a bright bunch of tulips. From £36, House of Fraser.
This small striped mirror from Oliver Bonas (£60) is a good size to add to a classic looking dressing table for a modern monochrome contrast.
Add a dash of darkness to your Spring salads or use as a gift pick up a bottle of the Piazza Grande Balsamic dressing No.4 (£20.95, Harvey Nichols), hailing from Modena, the home of Balsamic vinegar and packaged to monochrome perfection.
Bath time buddy
Draw a bath and accompany with the chic Menu Norm Fire hurricane tea light holder in black (£30, Heal's). It gives your tea lights added ambience through the reflection off the matt powder coated copper zinc alloy casing. Its minimalist design and monochrome scheme make for a unique bathroom accessory.
