While monochrome typically refers to black and white, it also includes grayscale (a range of grey tones from black to white) and shades of one colour. Those old black-and-white movies picture monochrome in motion, and black-and-white photos often capture a certain monochromatic nostalgia and mood. However, the concept of monochrome is applicable to all colours on the spectrum. From its Greek origin, monochromos means ‘of a single colour’: monos (single or one) and khroma (colour).
The following images showcase a curated edit of monochrome styles in both interiors and objects.
