Monochromatic Mood Swing

Wednesday, April 3

Sometimes I get the urge to remove all colour from my decorating. Something about the crispness of pure black and white is so appealing. Then, I start thinking about incorporating one or two little bits of colour and the next thing you know, colour and pattern have exploded all over the place. I'm just too drawn to brightness and cheer to pull off monochromaticity in real life. Just for today, though, we can pretend. Here are some of my favourite inspiration images:

And here's what I would do (for someone else, obviously...)

  1. Graphic floral drapes with bamboo shades.
  2. Vintage looking art from Society6
  3. Geometric lamp from Circa Lighting
  4. Wood and leather occasional chair from Attica
  5. Tic Tac Toe Bookcase from Attica
  6. Striped DwellStudio rug from Modern Karibou
  7. Crate & Barrel chest as bedside table
  8. Crate & Barrel accent table as bedside table
  9. 'Don't Give Up The Ship' pillow and elephant and ikat fabric for additional pillows
  10. Dramatic bed with storage from Attica
  11. Volcanic foo dogs, modern alarm clock, and beautiful books as accessories
