Interiors Trend: Marvelous Monochrome

All rise for the newest trend that is making all the noise in the past couple of years, the Fashionista Interiors Trend inspired by the timeless elegance and appeal of minimalist and monochromatic fashion and design.

The lifestyle trend that is becoming increasingly popular in every fashion capital of the world, such as Paris, New York, and Milan to name a few, encompasses the love for solid black, white and grey hues but with a dash of colorful vibrancy and decor. Here is how the trend has made its way into interior design and how you can incorporate it into your home as well for a modern, sublime look.

The basics of the fashionista interior trend


Simplicity and minimalism are two pillars of this modern design, portrayed by a foundation of black and white hues that permeate every room, complemented by grey details and outlines. I think all of you monochromatic lovers will find yourself right at home here.

Along with your base hues, you can introduce a dash of variety by adopting contrasting colors such as dusty pink or coral, natural green, dark timber, or even aqua blue. But don’t overdo it, as the essence of this style lies in simplicity, so be sure to restrict yourself to one or two contrasting hues per room. You can add interesting elements that will complement the décor and ambiance such as potted plants, with a hint of gold as well.

As you can tell, a scaled down color palate is all you need for this elegant trend to come to life.

Fashionable elements


The Fashionista Interiors Trend is inspired by fashion, glamour, living the big life. So naturally, fashion inside your own home plays a key role in bringing out its essence, so this is not a look intended to imbue your house with warmth and a homey vibe. No, this look is all about the chic, metropolitan lifestyle for a busy, modern individual.

Therefore, the elements you introduce are literally fashion accessories. From perfume racks, designer handbags, shoes and fashionable artwork inspired by motivational quotes (which we’ll get to in a minute) and celebrities, to decorative ornaments such as figurines that follow in the same, complementary color scheme.


The importance of quote art


Inspiration, motivation, and success should be your guiding stars, and that is why quote art is one of the most important elements that make this trend so appealing. You want to look for quotes that are timeless and reflect your personality, inspire you to do better and achieve more, and most importantly, live your life to the fullest.

What’s more, black quotes set up against a white foundation, or vice versa, go amazingly with contrasting outlines, such as custom frames in grey, charcoal, or even golden and metallic. You also want to mix and match different fonts, prints, and styles, while trying to avoid limitations. So make sure you give the design some variety by introducing quotes in different languages. French is, of course, an all-time favorite.

Stylish furniture and décor


Although it can work as a design choice for a house as well, this style is more suited for city pads and apartments, depicting that busy metropolitan lifestyle. Think dark floors complimented with lighter accessories such as black and white carpets or light color wood.

Following your simplified color scheme, you can introduce many retro or modern accessories in grey, white, or black, such as coffee tables, lamps, vases, clothing racks, and entire workstations. Furniture will also follow this motif, allowing you to work with leather, marble, faux fur and more.

The Fashionista Interiors Trend is making a boom in the modern world, perfectly portraying what living in a city is all about through minimalism, timeless décor and the beauty of clean colors. Be wary though, once you try it, this style is bound to steal your heart for good.
