All of us have a favorite color or color combination, so why not decorate with it? Though the concept might seem almost too good to be true, it can be exactly what you need. Besides, a room dripping in one color scheme is not only refreshing but its oh so cool. Even though adding variation and contrast is great, sometimes you want a room in your home to be your oasis where your personality shines through. That is what a monochromatic space will do. Here’s how to achieve it easily, without breaking the bank.
Black & Gold
For those that love an edgy touch and black is your favorite color, this is the perfect option for you. Those that have a smaller bedroom might be intimidated by the idea of having inky black walls; however, it’s quite the opposite. Black walls create a focal point that can make a bedroom appear large. The key is working with a gold hue for a break in the color palette. It’s all about brightening the room where you need it best. Take your gold bits and add them into work on brightening the black hue.
Periwinkle is one of those colors that seems a bit too unique to work well with anything you decorate. There is something about it that seems oh so charming yet difficult. However, we are here to break the myth and share that having a periwinkle room is not only a great idea, it’s also quirky. There is something about the hue that just enhances the room’s overall appeal. Whether the room is small or big you will enjoy this color.
Bright White and Silver
White is one of those colors, all of us know and love. But somehow it seems almost boring and tends to lackluster. Though it is elegant and one of a kind, just like black this type of color is missing a hint of something and that is silver. Adding silver to your white display is perfect for those that want to use an all-white approach yet need a brightening effect. Silver brightens the room without taking away from the white.
Pale pink and Cream
When it comes to creating a delicate space, bringing hues of pale pink and pairing them with cream is the way to go. Not only does it create a whimsical approach, but it makes the room appear sleek and modern. It’s all about creating a geometric approach with a balance in color waves.
Though we love the look of a neutral, this year its all about warming up the room and twisting your neutrals. It’s about bringing a chic twist to your neutrals. Bring in hues of caramel and sand for a display that feels sleek yet elegant but with a variation of the same contrasting hue.
Soft Gray Blues
When it comes to finding a hue that is relaxing yet gives you a bit of an edge, gray-blues is the way to go. Not only is it soothing and has that endearing touch, but it also feels a bit masculine which we love. It’s the perfect ethereal, dream color that makes the room come to life. Consider staining your floors a blue-gray hue to truly bring a monochromatic appeal.
If gray-blues isn’t your speed and you want a moodier approach a smoky gray palette is a way to go. Not only is it charming and sleek but it gives the room an edge without having to incorporate black. Opt for warm, darker grays and blend it with a middle shade to create an edgy industrial layout.
Patterns on top of Patterns
As a substitute for adding paint and solids to create a monochromatic approach, consider using patterns. Patterns work due to how enchanting they can be. The idea of working with patterns is selecting one color and go from there. You want all of your patterns to have one color in common, to create the best display possible. It’s also an excellent form of brightening the room where you want it most.
White and Pop of Color
Though white is great and we love it very much, sometimes it can be a bit too mundane for some. If that is the case it is time to look into adding a pop of color. Pops of color, work best when they have an open plain field and palette such as white. Whether you add it in with a chair or throw pillows the option is up to you.
Do not discharge the idea of using bold hues of pink. Pink is one of those shades that works well anywhere it is placed. Instead of having an entirely bold hue display, blend in different shades of pink to brighten the room overall. It’s all about blending in multiple shades for a beautiful display that feels daring yet charming.
