Subtle Tones


If a bold statement isn’t your style, subtle tones and hues can be the perfect way to add delicate colour to your space. Light blues and purples, like those used in this abstract art piece, are ideal for creating a sophisticated focal point that doesn’t subdue your overall monochrome look.

Abstract art doesn’t have to contrast with your monochrome theme to make a statement, it can continue it beautifully too. A black and white design can still be bold and act as an attention grabbing piece of original artwork through using shades, patterns, and shapes. 

Our Retro Curve Art Print effortlessly breathes Mid Century Retro design into your space. Picked by Huffington Post and featuring in their 'Curvy Decor Interior Design Best Buys' shopping feature, the editor quoted this: 

"A simple line art piece with a curved retro essence can really help add shape to a space. Opt for the biggest possible size to create a feature wall with a wavy pop-art vibe".

Bold, vibrant colour clashes can work spectacularly in a monochrome space, drawing attention to your original artwork. The combination of colours and artistic style in this canvas print can look inspiring and still complementary in rooms that are using only black and white tones.  

Warming Accents

Monochrome homes can sometimes lack some warmth due to the absence of colour. What better way to add some extra depth than with artwork featuring a warmer colour palette?

Choosing a nude canvas print will accentuate your decor with fine art.

This wall art poster won’t only add some warmth and look great, it’ll bring a touch of nature too. 

What Size Artwork Should You Choose?

The beauty of abstract art means that you can choose to go as small or as large as your space allows, you will receive the full beauty of the artwork. If you are decorating a large loft apartment with tall ceilings, you could naturally choose an oversized abstract canvas art to maximise the impact of your space and ceiling height. One of our popular large sizes is 150 x 90 cm which is sure to create a statement. 

If you're looking to create a gallery wall, however, you may want to mix and match sizes with some smaller framed pictures and a few larger artwork to create visual impact.
