As I’m sure you fashion mavens out there have noticed, 2013 has been all about monochrome. All-black collections and white pieces en masse have dominated the runways, with pattern and texture being the standouts instead of color. Monochrome sounds so flat – but applying this palette to your holiday décor is anything but! Be fashion forward – break past the red and green! Embrace your inner fashionista by letting this year’s runway trends inspire your fabulous monochrome look.
You don’t lose self-expression when you go ‘chrome. As a matter of fact, focusing on a palette of patterns and textures is QUITE a statement! By removing contrast there is a wide variety of styles and moods you can evoke with your own style. Check out how different these various rooms are, even though they’re all on trend in monochrome!
I love the translation of the cable knit sweater into blankets and throws. This all white holiday living room has cable knit throws, a rug and my favorite, a cable knit chair! The white paper lanterns are fun and unexpected. While white evokes the cool essence of wintry nights, the blend of textures make the room still feel warm and welcoming.Want to really shine this year? Try this room of grey and silver. The whole room gives off a festive shimmer perfect for the holiday season.
Taking style to the table, these gourds brighten up this black and white tablescape ready for the season’s festivities.
This black and white holiday table setting is both playful and glamorous. It sports personal flair pieces in the feather boas and crystal beaded table runners. The silver candle holders add classic shine and look smart with the trendy monochromatic theme.
