Meant for relaxation, there’s no better place for elegance to shine than the bedroom. These forty gorgeous black and white bedrooms show the stretch of the monochromatic theme. Whether white, minimalist and stencilled, or bold, luxurious and striking, all contain contrast and depth at its finest. Feature walls play with headboards, floating beds and patterned covers to produce the ideal zone for pampering and a good night’s sleep.

Black frames white in a feature wall and chiffon curtaining. Mixing together in a line sketch rug, a low stencil bed joins with an ottoman and grid lighting for a modern look.
Textures take centre stage in this modern glamour bedroom. Geometric-patterned wallpaper harks to a quilted duvet with silver lining. Draped lights and alternating blinds add detail to block furniture.
Make monochromes easy in a range of shades. This bedroom collects black and grey in a rug and bedding, while white lines framed bookcases, a panelled feature wall and drop bauble lighting.
Create a trail to your bed. Ceiling cut-out squares culminate in a black gridded feature wall, leading to low-lying dreamtime. A splash of black meets the rug, while sleek black-and-white cupboards add finesse.
A touch of the regal blesses this bedroom. Matte-textured wallpaper holds a silver orb and black-and-gold hanging lights. Wooden tables match either side of a black-and-beige bed, as bird vases add eccentricity.
Chocolate and cream come to the party in this quadro-toned room, focused by a central silver mirror. With a twisted chandelier, textured walls and quilted headboard, how could you resist its lure?
Florentine in style, this space uses black and white to pattern. A sensual portrait hangs over Florentine-patterned cushions, reflected in the curtains. A beautiful Gothic chandelier harks to a candelabra below, as light sketches finish off the room.
Glass elongates this sleeping space, resplendent in textures and bold colouring. A lined black feature wall, white spiral chandelier, low-lying futon bed and side mirror are all winners in this artistic design.
Black and white can live in shades of grey. This bedroom mutes the main hues in a four-poster steel frame, exposed brick wall and wooden panelling in charcoal. A black quilted sofa and hexagonal artwork go back to black.
Darker shades can keep a bedroom airy. This space shows it well with a charcoal slatted wardrobe partition, letting light and a view in. Alternate wood panelling frames a cushioned white bed amidst pops of beige.
Textures and engraving add character to this unique space. Backgrounded by letters, a distressed concrete wall and ceiling proffer hanging single lights, a steampunk fireplace, wood rack and gym pulley. A circular rug neatly grounds a bed of gingham.
More white than black, this room makes a feature out of the bed. An attic space is framed by French windows and light wood, while black dashes in bold bedding and a single chair.
