One of the hottest tips of the Fairhaven Homes interior design team is using matte black furnishings as the cornerstone of your colour palette. It’s a simple way to make a statement and add instant style to your home. Matte black is the perfect base colour; it provides endless possibilities that set your imagination free.

Let’s explore some of the key elements that make matte black so effective and versatile:

Modern update

Matte black is right on trend. It provides a minimalistic feel that makes your home feel modern, cool and super-stylish, while still giving you the scope to showcase your personality. It’s as ‘now’ as it gets, but has a classic feel that will stand the test of time.

The new neutral

Matte black is the new neutral. It provides a coherent hook that ties everything together. It’s understated boldness makes colours pop – this frees you up to express yourself with other pieces such as furniture, curtains, rugs, cushions, throws or artwork.

Monochromatic chic

A monochromatic design aesthetic is big, bold and can be exceptionally beautiful. ‘Mono’ technically means one, but monochromatic design can still provide variety and scope. You can focus on one feature colour throughout a room or home; use a contrasting colour to highlight the feature colour (think the classic black and white bathroom); or you can use shades of the feature colour to open up a world of possibilities while maintaining a coherent theme that ties everything together.

Mix and match

One of matte black’s best features is it’s versatility. You can match it with any colour and it works. This allows you to use bold statement pieces throughout your home, which really ‘pop’ against the black neutral base colour. It’s a quick and easy way to bring colour into your home while maintaining a coordinated and consistent feel throughout. Then, when you need a change, you can easily shake up the feel of a room just by changing your statement pieces.
