Decorating in black and white is perennially popular and eternally chic. Hilary Robertson demonstrates how, whether used alone or together, these contrasting shades can create dramatic effects at home, from the classic to the eclectic.
Sought-after interiors stylist Hilary Robertson celebrates the stylish simplicity of the monochromatic home—elegant interiors in black, white, and every shade of grey in between. In the first chapter, The Monochrome Palette, Hilary analyzes five different monochrome schemes, providing moodboards for different effects: In Black and White, Grey Matters, Shades of Pale, Dark Looks, and In the Mix. Following on, Let there be Light provides examples of interiors with a whiter, brighter approach, while The Dark Room visits homes that have employed darker monochrome palettes. Next, in Monochrome Home, Hilary Robertson shows how to bring the look right up to date, visiting the fabulously inspiring homes of artists, architects and designers across the globe from London and Paris to Copenhagen, rural Sweden, and NYC.
