For example, a wallpaper with a white background may look more like cream next to a white table, so try to keep them apart, using black accessories as punctuation. A monochrome scheme can be bold and will usually benefit from some texture and a mix of surface finishes. Gloss and matt, opaque and dense - build up layers to add extra interest and soften any harshness.

Geometric kitchen splashback, if you love the tradtional black-and-white floor tiles, but you want something a little different, try the monochrome look with wall tiles instead. Here, the splashback is made of ceramic tiles in a zig-zag pattern, which follows the shape of the shelf, too. Industrial-chic kitchen, if you’re designing a monochrome kitchen, but are worried the effect will be too harsh, try a few black accessories teamed with bright primary colours; it really works in a utility-style kitchen like this one.

Laurent Bedroom, 2017-08-22 10:22:37. The Rainbow room, every colour under the sun helps spell out H-A-P-P-Y in this fun, glorious room. Coordination? We’re having none of it – just throw everything into the mix and enjoy the result. After all, life’s too short to worry. Moody blue, soft grey walls, shadows moving across the bed, trompe l’oeil wallpaper, this space has hidden depths.

Laurent Bathroom, 2017-08-21 17:43:08. If you have a small bathroom don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of small bathroom ideas for you.

Laurent Dining room, 2017-08-22 10:22:10. Think pink, as general rule, the stronger the pink the less of it you need, so try a shot of shocking cerise with black and white to create a sophisticated look that’s oozing with energy. Use white as the base as it sets off any pink to its best advantage. Introduce the explosion of colour with sumptuous velvet seating and vivid curtains. Team with black accents to take the look from girly to glam. An opulent orb pendant light will lean the look towards opulent 1950s Hollywood.

Laurent Bathroom, 2017-08-22 10:22:02. Trick the eye, the amount of space you have and what the eye perceives aren’t necessarily the same thing. Play with the boundaries of perception by tiling the side of your bath and the wall with the same design – it makes it hard to distinguish where each begins, thereby making your space feel larger. Marble is particularly effective here, as it looks almost like one huge sheet and the individual tiles aren’t very obvious.

An almost symmetrical feel keeps the space looking neat and cohesive.
