Monochrome Inspirations…

Abode - Creativity - Folk



If you’ve been following me via instagram, you might remember that my Summer (and ongoing) project has been to finish Boo’s bedroom…we’re very nearly there, & loving our potato printed version of Ferm Living’s half moon wallpaper (see a snippet here).

I love images of full on monochrome interiors, but I think it can be a little unachievable in children’s spaces with all those toys and bits & bobs, plus, we like a little colour.

Hopefully I’ll be able to share the finished room soon, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a few monochrome inspirations for adding a touch of black & white to spaces for kids (works for grown ups too!)

1\\ add some chalkboard paint (great fun for the kids, and looks good too!). You could do a full wall, half wall or even just a door
2\\ add touches of monochrome that can easily be updated such as rugs, prints & soft furnishings (see above for a few ideas)
3\\ if the idea of full on black & white scares you a little (as it does me!), add some bright colour pops like this, some bright decals like this, or some wall stickers like this. You could also add an accent colour wall, or paint doors to break up the space (I love this idea).
4\\ print some family photos in black and white to create a photo wall like this (you could use coloured mounts or frames to add in those pops)
5\\ natural materials & pastels soften the monochrome impact and work really well together like this

    Your potato printing is genius! When I originally saw it I thought it was the actual wallpaper. We have one of the MiniWilla prints too, I love them so much, they are really fun for a kids room. X

      Aw thanks Jen, I’ve spent a year wondering whether to do the whole wall after we did half just after we moved in, and I’m so glad I went for it! Love MiniWilla too. We’ll be collecting prints over time I think, but have stared with the Fine Little Day pear print, along with a few vintage, and a Belle & Boo :0) x
