A study in black-and-white, the Dutch Monochrome Home by My Deer literally glows with soothing layers of clean design. A modern dream home, these spaces are bathed in washes of white pierced with striking, artful accents.
The white wide-plank wood flooring is immediately a crush-worthy concept. Against the white walls, ceilings and decor, these monochromatic interiors become ethereal spaces.
The living room’s brown marble mantel is elegant, while the rustic wood table and plush white tufted chairs make for a warm setting surrounding this wood-burning fireplace. I’m loving the white frames which hold no artwork but do manage to engage the eye. A hallway carries the same palette of cool ease with a small table, whimsical art, photography and decor boasting cool typographic designs of letters, numbers and words. An arrangement of cacti is a bit unexpected but pops against the oversize black wall art.
The dining room is a relaxing spot with white Eames dining chairs and the iconic lounge in black and walnut. A large wooden workhorse-style table impeccably complements these mid-century furnishings. Two black dome pendants with a brushed gold reverse finish preside over this large table, while a sleek mounted deer head gazes over the room.
The staircase consists of painted white steps which twist to the second level. A glossy black balustrade greets, while the hallways travel to the nearby bedrooms. In the master, a taupe-hued upholstered bed is the only dose of contrast in the space, which is shared entirely with the bathroom amenities. An independent soaking tub and raw wood vanity with double bowl basins rest underneath slanted windows. The fully-glazed walk-in shower features grey square tiles which transition from the natural pebble-stone flooring.
A child’s playroom is sweet with cheery highlights of red such as the ride-on firetruck and photographic art featuring two women wearing ruby red shoes.
The Dutch Monochrome Home is one of those modern dream residence’s embracing sophisticated simplicity, where you just know you’d feel a little calmer and a tad happier coming home to.
