Interior blogs to follow if you love the monochrome trend
Monochrome is having a moment. Not only is it a sure-fire way to give any space an elegant look and feel, but it’s also achievable and can work in every room of your home. Whether you love the idea of a monochrome bathroom, kitchen, home office or lounge, it’s easy to achieve a timeless aesthetic with this contemporary trend.
Taking a monochromatic approach to your interiors is also an excellent way to create a natural flow. If you opt for a monochrome lounge, the trend can be weaved throughout the rest of your home, with accessories and soft furnishings in your colour of choice.
Check out these interior blogs that have the monochrome trend down to a T.
The House That Black Built
Described as having a ‘love affair with the colour black’, The House That Black Built is your number one resource for all things monochrome. Creator Chelsea is renovating her Victorian villa in Cheshire and has committed to a sleek monochrome palette throughout the entire home. The modern feel of monochrome perfectly complements the house’s stunning period features, resulting in a home that expertly balances old and new. Think striking black fireplaces, black and white hexagonal mosaic tiles and white marble countertops.
What started as a modest Instagram account documenting a renovation project has turned into a hugely successful interior design blog that’s been featured on MADE.com and in Ideal Home magazine. Restoring Lansdowne creator, Kristine is an expert in all things monochrome and has transformed her Victorian property into something of a masterpiece over the last six years. With a modern vintage aesthetic, you can expect the building’s original features painted in black and moody grey hues, dark tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms and Scandi-style interiors throughout. Restoring Lansdowne is the perfect example of how dark interiors play well in bright, light-filled spaces.
Created by award-winning design and lifestyle blogger and interiors writer Helen Powell, Design Hunter is a great place to browse if you’re searching for monochrome inspirations in lighter tones. The home features a minimalistic, modern style throughout, and the blog is a useful place to pick up interior hacks. Find out how to carry the monochrome trend through all four seasons and make the most of small spaces, plus learn how to develop a mood board for your new home. Expect Helen’s signature light-filled rooms with clean, crisp lines and stand-out neutral accents – with pops of black, of course.
Home Style Glasgow
Interior Stylist Jeri started the Instagram page @home_style_glasgow when she purchased one of our stunning Yeats homes and has documented her home’s transformation from a blank canvas to an ultra-luxe monochrome dream pad. With funky geometric wallpaper, white marble surfaces and striking black accents throughout, Jeri’s home is one to take inspiration from if you’ve just bought a new build. The light-filled Yeats allows buyers to play with darker tones and textures, and we think Jeri has absolutely nailed it with her sleek monochrome design. Check out her page for on-trend inspo, like this stunning wall panelling in the open-plan kitchen dining area.
