How to add colour to a monochrome home

I’m going to show you a lovely Swedish home with natural details and how to add colour to a monochrome home. There are of course many ways of adding colour to a home. I’ll focus even more on that in a different post that I’m planning. In this monochrome home we can see colours in form of a throw, cushions, curtains and a plant, but not only that. As a nice contrast there’s a round mirror framed in wood and natural wood frames. Instead of adding an actual colour, why not add wood instead. Pale wood is very much on trend at the moment. I’m waiting for the gorgeous Workshop chair by Muuto to arrive. It was design by Cecilie Manz, whom I’m sure you all know and love.

This contrasting peg rail works so well for displaying lovely clothes and summery items. Come Christmas time I can just picture a nice minimal wreath here. Woudn’t that look lovely? This rail would be so easy to change with the seasons and you can add as much or as little colour as you want. I’ve found a couple of good peg rails here and here.

Colour contrasts can be done in so many ways. Here the colour of the stool really sticks out. This is also a great and inexpensive way of having extra seating. Why not paint a couple of the stools in a different colour?! The Frosta stool from IKEA is only £9 each. I used to have one of these as my bedside table. You can see it here. The more expensive option, is Stool E60 by Artek, you can see it here.

Lampe Gras Plug and Dream Nº217 looks great here with the cool black and white prints and the oak frame. You can get it from David Village Lighting. The hanging lamp is from The Kovak Family and is called Lamp 25, because it’s made of 25 pieces. You can get it in several finishes. The shape is beautiful.

Did you notice the stunning red plant too? For a long time we’ve been adding green plants, but I’ve recently noticed more colourful plants. Here’s an example that I will take some ideas from.

Another favourite just now is the Slit brass table by Hay. It looks great in monochrome homes and it’s currently on my wishlist. You can find it at Amara here. What’s on your wishlist and is it something with colour?! If you have other ideas of how to add colours please comment below, as we would love to hear them.
