Modern monochrome makes an impact in the home

Some argue that monochrome has never gone out of style, but this year it has had a revamp and there are now two ways to incorporate the black and white look in the home– romantic and graphic.


This style is a nod to the current trend for soft pastels and ditsy print floral patterns within the home. Whilst including black can be seen as a contrast to this trend, complimenting it with the pantone colours of 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, can give it a soft edge.

If this is the look you are going for we suggest having our Guiro Brass and Pebble roller blinds fitted in the home. Available in either black or a dark grey they provide a subtle contrast to any pastel shades and muted colours.

Another way to incorporate monochrome in a soft way is to make white the key colour for the window dressings and then add black through statement furniture, throws and cushions.

To achieve this look our preference is the Saville Row and Tern roller blind fabric in white.


The alternative way to incorporate black and white in the home is through strong geometric patterns, clean lines and block prints. Although this may be a slightly intimidating look it works well in large apartments, modern kitchens or garden rooms.

For this look the perfect roller blind fabric is either Disca or Pebble in black, but if you would prefer to avoid a pattern then we suggest our stylish Cinder, Rock or Pure Black, all are available in the Bermuda plain fabric.

Another option to opt for shutters but in a contemporary black style rather than white. Shutters are great for giving privacy, especially in street-facing rooms but they will also cast a subtle light into the room.
