Global Monochrome

It would be easy to believe that this decor had been curated from years of exotic travel - but this look is easier to craft than you might think. We've done the leg work (and the jetlag) to create this beautifully relaxed, eastern-inspired collection - a pick 'n mix of coordinating pieces that you can layer with confidence.

Embrace texture

When working with a mainly monochrome base, its texture that brings warmth and character to your decor. Woven fabrics, rich leathers, worn woods and natural linens are what you're after here - and try to create contrast; a thick shaggy rug will have even more impact against a hard wood coffee table.

Think print

Like texture, prints are also key to achieving this eclectic style. Our accessories feature etched designs inspired by mark-making techniques and woven patterned textiles that celebrate traditional craftmanship. Furniture can be rich in organic textures too; opt for the natural grain of leather and wood where possible.

Colour palette: Monochrome, with a twist

Your base is black and white - making this an especially good choice if you're working with the blank canvas of a new home. Use a warming, rich mustard shade as an accent colour, incorporating into each room with patterned accessories. Finish each room with a burst of deep green from big palm plants - they'll complement the organic materials.

Add an industrial edge

It keeps the look modern. Throughout each room we've paired the collection with our Nomad furniture range (spot the handsome bed frame). The contrasting oak effect wood and stark black metal frame create that distinctive urban look, which you can build on with exposed bulb lighting and mesh details.
