6 Stunning Homes in Black-and-White Theme

November 18, 2014

Nothing quite compares to a black and white colour palette when it comes to interior design - the colour scheme lends itself to both vintage and contemporary interpretations, and makes an incredible bold statement.

Here are six stunning monochromatic homes to inspire you. Whether they are modern, contemporary, elegant or dramatic, you will see why you can never go wrong with black and white.

1. This striking apartment, with its art deco twist, feels spectacularly dramatic. The curved accents in the living room and playful geometric patterns in the study are strangely reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, giving it a slight fantastical feel as well.

Location: Akyab Road (condo)
Cost of renovation for entire house: $40,000

2. This apartment in East Coast Road is contemporary, with eclectic elements fused within. While walls and cabinet surfaces are kept to monochrome, wood furniture are used to soften the look. An irregular wall to wall bookshelf showcases the owners' collections of books, art and figurines.

Location: Upper East Coast Road
Cost of renovation for entire house: $75,000

3. Another contemporary take on the monochrome palette, the designers used clean geometric lines and patterns as the main design element. Black framed sliding doors are used for the kitchen and walk-in wardrobe while a wall-to-wall consoles extends to the hidden shoe cabinet.

Location: The Peak @ Toa Payoh (condo)

4. White is the main colour in this Scandivian home, while black furnishings and accents are incorporated to break its monotony. The apartment looks clean, spacious, with an welcoming vibe, thanks to the airiness in its design.


Interior Designer: LU+C Studio
Location: Stevens Road (condo)
Cost of renovation for entire house: $15,000

5. This maisonette in Jurong West has no lack of space for the designers to play with. They went with a retro look in black and white, from the entryway to the kitchen, to the cabinet designs. A chalkboard on the cabinet door lets the owners express themselves.

6. Vintage and dramatic, this monochrome apartment is elegant and eye-catching. A faux fireplace hides the TV in the living room, while the chandelier lends a touch of drama to the dining area. Dark, baroque wallpaper covers one wall in the bedroom, exuding a brooding feeling of mystery.

Monochrome can be for anybody, if it is applied onto the appropriate style correctly. If you feel that it is too dull, you can always incorporate pops of colours through accessories or art to jazz it up. But we suspect that most lovers of this palette like it for its striking simplicity, and that's all they need.
