TRENDING: MONOCHROME AT HOME

Scared of commitment…to colour? You need help. Monochromatic help.

Eurgh. I’m going to be blunt: my personal opinion is strictly monochrome is strictly the worse. Look, it’s great if it’s your thang, not only are you on trend but it’s a trend that’s not going to date, and yes, we all know colour does not equate to personality but jeez… it’s starker than Ned. Not that Ned Stark is bad, he was pretty cool besides the whole wolf business, but where the hell is all the stuff?  The oomph? Something that doesn’t make my eyes bored? God forbid you insult the bare minimum of what is considered to be a colour palette. I much prefer this look when it’s softened a little:

Tah-dah! My favourite element texture to the rescue. Layer in some wood, some fur, a plant or two and try to hit all tones on the monochromatic spectrum, not just black and white. Cream instead of whitest white, charcoal instead of darkest black, and all the greys in between. Now it’s not such a snooze fest. Besides those bedroom shots. They look like some damn fine places to… pass out and snore loudly.
