5 Reasons To Love Monochrome Interiors
These black and white rooms are guaranteed to never go out of style
Whether it's fashion or interior design, there is no denying that the classic combination of black and white is here to stay. We can't say we're surprised—this pairing is versatile, simple yet sophisticated, and dramatic all at the same time. Here are a few reasons why you should strip your home of color, too:
1. It's low-maintenance and easy to clean.
Since everything is quite simple and bare, dusting the surfaces regularly (and an occasional deep cleaning session every now and then!) is all you need to do to keep your home in tip-top shape.
2. Contrary to popular belief, black and white isn’t boring.
Foregoing color doesn’t automatically mean you'll have drab interiors. To keep it from looking uninteresting, use decor and accessories in varying tones of gray. This way, you're able to keep with the monochromatic theme while adding depth to your space.
3. It's the perfect base for any type of style.
Whether you like Scandinavian or minimalist-inspired influences—if you're only working with white, black or gray walls and pieces, it will automatically be a great base for any type of style. When you have a blank canvas, it will be a piece of cake to accessorize your home.
4. You can experiment with loud pieces without going overboard.
If you love playing with prints and patterns but you're always afraid of taking it too far with color, you'd find that the black and white combo has the power to tone down the loudest of designs and can help you maintain a balanced aesthetic for your home.
5. It allows you to dive into different textures.
Similar to the rule with using prints, textured pieces have a tendency to look muted down when brought in in basic colors. This gives you a space that's relaxed in character—complete with clean lines.
