#TrendsdayWednesday: Monochrome

#TrendsdayWednesday: Monochrome

Undoubtedly modern, Monochrome is a trend that has crept into the mainstream recently. Black and white is a bold colour combo, and not for the faint-hearted.

A true monochrome scheme is well suited to clean lines and contemporary properties. I’ve never felt brave enough to embrace this trend in our slightly wonky cottage, but if I had I’d have opted to style our nursery in this way.

I’m not a huge fan of nurseries decorated in blue for a boy or pink for a girl, so this gender-neutral approach is much more my cup of tea.

All in the accessories, prints and patterns are your friend where monochrome schemes are concerned, adding interest for a polished look.

I’ve recently been introduced to Martha & Hepsie, and I’ve fallen head over heels for their unique designs, printed and made in the UK. Retailing homeware, stationary and gifts, they’ve recently launched their first babywear collection, and their lovely monochrome ‘Adorable Animals’ baby blanket would be perfect finishing touch for any black & white nursery scheme.

Incredibly soft, the blanket would be the perfect gift to welcome any new arrival. The design itself is full of detail, featuring a rhino, elephant, owl and giraffe unisex print. A nice alternative to thick knits, the baby blanket is backed with a plain milk coloured jersey, and finished with a milk trim. Martha & Hepsie even stock a cute pair of leggings to match!

A couple of weeks ago, I honed in on the brush lettering trend, and really these two trends work incredibly well hand in hand. A gallery wall with monochrome wall-art and photos would be the perfect way to accesorise a painted wall.

As it stands we opted for a softer grey and yellow palette for our nursery- guest room hybrid, and I think it was the right choice for our country cottage. You can have a look at our finished room reveal here.
