Monochrome lighting & interior ideas

One of the latest trends to hit us this season is the super sleek black and white look using monochrome Lighting and accessories. The definition of monochrome is a design, painting or theme using one specific colour spectrum introduced in several shades. The colours are limited but introduced as several hues. The most common monochrome theme is black and white with similar hues in between such as grey. This colour collaboration definitely packs a punch and is not for the faint hearted, the key to this look is to create a calm, classic vibe by using clean fresh colours such as white and grey then layer with striking black and white accessories.

To create the most effective monochrome interior, you should consider an even balance of black and white accessories. Don’t overfill your interior as this may make your rooms feel claustrophobic and chaotic, soften the stark black and white with hints of grey. Check out our Monochrome Board on Pinterest.


Our look book this week shows off our monochrome lighting designs in 3 exciting looks. You should think about the style of monochrome you would prefer such as classic, retro and contemporary.

Classic Monochrome Lighting

For a classic monochrome twist we have a selection of black chandeliers such as our Marie Therese 5 Light Dual Mount Chandelier in Black which features a vintage inspired design in a contemporary black acrylic finish or opt for a sultry look with our L’amour 4 Light Chandelier in Pleated Shade in Black. A stunning classic chandelier enveloped in a sultry black voile shade this is a unique fitting ready to give any home that wow factor. Add our glamorous Hollywood Table Lamp in Chrome for a touch of nostalgic monochrome, the black adjustable legs are a great contrast with the frosted white diffuser and tie in perfectly with the monochrome look. Our Pavlo 2 Light Wall Light with Black Shades in White combines a fresh white frame with two striking black shades to complete the monochrome look. Adding hints of glitz and glam by introducing crystals, black velvet and sequins will create a classic and more opulent look to a sometimes harsh interior theme.

Retro Monochrome Lighting

Retro designs will resurface time and time again. Why not introduce this look in a timeless monochrome colour? Start with a simple ceiling shade such as our Mimis Tiered Drum Easy to Fit Ceiling Shade in Black then chose a simple retro pattern for your accessories such as spots or stripes. A cool retro print on a fresh white wall will create a simple wall feature, our Retro Ball Game Canvas Art features a monochrome photograph of a volley ball match circa 1960’s. Our Parabolic Floor Lamp in Black is a great take on a retro design, boasting a large white dome in a black outer shell it sits on a sturdy tripod base. This fitting is a great budget buy but if you’re in the mood to splurge opt for our Replica Circa 1907 Floor Lamp.

Contemporary Monochrome Lighting

Finally even if your taste sways more towards the modernist look you can still adopt a monochrome style in your home. For this look choose simple designs in glossy and metallic finishes. Our Replica Circa 1949 Small White Disc Pendant Light is the perfect example of contemporary monochrome lighting, featuring white gloss discs suspended from a slim cable as if floating mid air. This piece will give any room an instant talking point. Compliment with smooth glossy furniture. Keep accessories minimal, instead choose black accent lighting for an element of layering. Our Gauss 1 Light Wall Light in Satin Chrome teamed with our new Skula Table Lamp in Black will give that much needed hint of black whilst also instantly lighting up forgotten corners. The contemporary monochrome look is all about space and clean edges so choosing glossy, metallic and chrome finishes is a must.


We’ve pulled together these three looks in this weeks look book.
