Monochromatic Rooms

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.
