The thought of using one color to build a room is daunting to many, but when done correctly the end result is spectacular.
Here are a few things to think about when designing a monochromatic room:
- Use varying shades of the same color. If yellow, for example, is your color of choice, try using a pale color for your curtains while adding brighter hues such as canary yellow to your furniture.
- Utilize patterns. By painting stripes on your wall or utilizing rugs in similar colors (with circles, lines, squares, etc.) can break up monotony.
- Focus on lighting. Adding lighting from various angles will provide a range of shadows that work to give the room added depth. This can be recessed lighting from the ceiling, standing lamps from the center or up-lights from the bottom.
