Decorating with a Monochrome Rug

Decorating with a Monochrome Rug

Fading Night by Linie Design


Nothing quite matches the elegance of a black and white colour scheme. To achieve your monochrome look, begin by choosing a black, white or grey rug as the building blocks for your interior scheme. You can then start building up from here with other aspects such as furniture and accessories. The black and white combination has been around for centuries, so as well as being able to create a beautiful, sleek interior, you can also make use of the monochrome scheme to create a more vintage appeal.


Matrix 35 by Asiatic Carpets

In this contemporary bedroom, our new 'Matrix 35' rug by Asiatic Carpets truly claims the space by being the absolute focal point. A statement rug with an eye-catching bold pattern will become an important factor in the room, effortlessly drawing people in. Just like above, add a splash of colour, personality and life to your space with a green plant such as cactus or monstera, and some vibrantly coloured cushions.

Here, our gorgeous ‘Bologna’ rug by Linie Design is used to create a sleek, clean and minimalistic look with its natural charm. Its soft earthy tones and the graceful classic weave radiate nothing but luxury, lavishness and serenity. Bologna is hand woven by Indian master craftsmen working in safe working environments, and the individual nature of the construction meaning variances in the texture can occur, making each rug unique. Bologna would sit perfectly in the centre of an office space, setting the tone for the rest of the interior.


Ajo by Linie Design

Ajo, by one of Scandinavia’s famous design houses, is a classic piece with a contemporary twist.
