20 Rooms With Beautifully Implemented Monochromatic Color Schemes

The monochromatic design theme is one that will give your room a look of unity and harmony and is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye when you walk in the room. While the look is enough to keep the room interesting, monochromatic designs don’t leave your eyes searching for a connection between colors, patterns, textures, and other elements of the room, trying to make sense of the pattern. It just all flows seamlessly and gives the room a feeling of completeness – neat, tidy lines and the perfect streamline of design efforts. If you have struggled with the headaches of trying to put a room together using color schemes, a range of textures, and décor pieces, it can be difficult to pull it all together, which is why many people love the monochromatic design theme. Not only is the finished product a simple look for a room, but it’s much easier to pull it together than traditional design techniques. If you are interested in creating a monochromatic look in one of your rooms, we have some tips that can help you get started in designing a beautiful monochromatic room.

Choose the colors for your room

Choosing your color scheme is the basis of this design. In the monochromatic design, typically there are three colors used throughout the room – a base color, and two others that reflect the base choice – one lighter than the base, and one darker. Whether you choose a red as the base, a blue, a dark brown, or gray, you will use it to base the rest of your design theme around. Looking at color samples and studying them for a couple days before rushing into a decision, will help you to narrow your choices down.

Textures and patterns help complete your look

No matter what type of design theme you are working with, whether it be modern, shabby chic, rustic or any other, textures and patterns are what helps make the room unique, they give it personality, and make it complete. Without textures and patterns, any room will look flat and boring. In a bedroom, for instance, the comforter, a warm, fuzzy throw rug, throw pillows, your wall art, and other décor items, bring the room alive and you can feel the warmth of the room the minute you walk in the room when you see the different textures around the room. A beautifully monochromatic living room may incorporate your three color choices, just in the sofa alone, or you can choose a sofa that is a solid color choice, with your chairs displaying two or more of the color choices, in a patterned material. Hang a piece of wall art above a fireplace or the sofa that incorporates all three colors in it to tie the colors together.

Furniture

Furniture pieces can be a variety of different styles, so long as they tie-in with the look of the room and monochromatic shades you’ve chosen. If you want to step out just a bit to color outside the lines for a minute, you can add a small punch of color that accents your color threesome nicely, such as setting a bouquet of flowers on the dresser that’s a bold contrast to your theme. A bouquet of red roses in a black and white room, a painting that utilizes your monochromatic colors together, but has a splurge of a bright accent color to give the room a sudden burst of drama and flavor.
