home: trend [ midcentury monochrome ]
The angles, the curves, the familiar silhouette of midcentury design sits so well with a monochrome interior. A little hint of walnut tones is all you need to soften the monochrome look.
Across the high street there are so many homewares and furniture embracing the style and designs from the midcentury era.
It’s easy to create this trend from modern stores but also it’s a great excuse to explore vintage markets, auctions and antiques fairs. Look for designs from brands including Ercol (furniture), Midwinter and Meakin that have some beautiful design and great monochrome pieces (ceramics).
Use vintage vases, lamps and plates for decorative display to compliment the look.
