An iconic, timeless trend, black and white will always be a classic. The visual contrast of black and white is the epitome of chic and provides a sense of balance and boldness to your home’s space. So, before you start going monochrome mad and start snapping up every black & white item you can find here is something important to remember:

By kicking colour aside, you need to use contrasting materials such as linen, velvet, leather, and raw woods to add that much-needed texture and comfort factor because no one wants their home feeling like a gallery.
This is a to-do trend to incorporate into your home’s decor this 2019! But, it doesn’t only have to include black and white, in theory, a monochromatic colour palette can be any base colour and its range of hues. Stylists are now including accents of brass, gold, raw wood and marble to really up their home style. Here are our top tips for transforming your home:
