Metal and Monochromatic: A Love Story


 

Minimalistic interior design is popular due to the simple, yet bold statement it makes. This style is typically characterized by clean lines, a primarily black and white color scheme, and very few statement pieces. As it can be seen in the photos below, minimalist and rustic styles can be combined to create a comfortable, almost romantic space, without sacrificing simplicity.

When designing a minimalist space, it can be difficult to find statement pieces that add visual interest without making the design too busy. This is why many designers chose to integrate metal into spaces that are otherwise monochromatic. Since various metals offer different textures and reflective properties, the opportunities are endless when it comes to deciding on which decorative elements will enhance a design. 

 

 

Designer and blogger Emily Henderson's design of this master bathroom successfully combines monochromatic colors and metal through incorporating modern finishes and antique statement pieces. Her use of matte black metal further anchors the black and white scheme, while the pops of reflective brass add character and variety. The result is simultaneously minimalist, modern, and rustic.
