Monochrome. It’s not black and white.


2022’s Monochrome styling trend: it’s not black and white! Plus…

From country to contemporary open plan living … the rise of the universal trend that’s about ‘connecting with our homes’ and investing in our future.

Life isn’t black and white – and nor is the current interior’s monochrome trend. And the team from luxury homeware retailer Arighi Bianchi have encapsulated this in their latest design inspiration featuring exciting new products for 2022 – all available to buy online now.

“Interior trends are very different to the fast fashion, seasonal fads we’re surrounded by with clothing trends – and often feel compelled to keep up with”, says Lucy Mather from Arighi Bianchi. “But that’s not to say we don’t need to find new ways to update our homes that feel modern and fresh.

“With homes more than fashion – the trick to updating our homes is often to find new updates on classic looks that we connect with and that we know work.

“This year’s looks for the home are all about using new neutrals, tactile finishes and making connections. It’s about those finishing touches that connect – that work together and are new takes on classic looks. Monochrome is one of these looks – that rarely dates and that can deliver this classic yet totally on trend feel.”

The NEW Monochrome … 

“Monochrome never goes out of fashion, but in 2022 this trend is about using new neutrals and layering texture and tactile materials to create a sleek and sophisticated look with added depth.

“Boucle is hugely popular right now and this trending fabric is a great update in homes – from cushions through to sofas and dining chairs. It’s versatile too and a trend that we are seeing it work across both classic and contemporary spaces.”

Here, off white Boucle chairs with black hardware are combined with classic wood flooring, tactile accessories and a subtle designer rug to create a contempoary and grown up dining room that excudes luxury and finesse.

Layerer neutrals, tan and black in Open Plan Living spaces

“Modern open plan living doesn’t have to mean minimalist. Layering is the latest trend to give paired back Scandi interiors a cosy but refined finish. Strike the perfect balance by layering on-trend materials, textures and a complimentary colour palette including touches of ginger and warm wood tones, to create the perfect cosy open plan and dining space without it looking cluttered. Hints of black keep it looking sleek and fresh.

Modern Country:

“Create a modern classic country feel with 2022 twist by juxtaposing brick work with black styling and accessories.

“So while black isn’t the immediate colour you think of when aiming for a more country look and feel – it will bring an interiors’ overall dynamic up to date.

“This can be achieved with a new rug, coffee table and accessories to give a neutral sofa an instant update.”

Take a country-themed scheme from twee to trending with modern twists on classic pieces, a neutral palette with black highlights and nature-inspired green accessories and bontanicals throughout. Subtle black highlights again give that modern twist to keep the look bang up to date.
