Monochromatic Look is today’s topic!
In the interior design scene, a monochromatic look is when, based on a single colour, a whole space is created by the use of the colour’s various shades and tones, giving it dimension and a sense of differentiation within the room. This monochromatic look can be achieved by playing with the different tints of the colour, different pieces of decoration, textures and sizes and a lot more. Don’t be afraid to experiment and use your imagination.
A monochromatic look might sound simple and not too appealing, so today we are going over what it is and how to achieve a stunning, monochromatic room, perfect for your house.
An easy, and quite obvious, way to start creating a monochromatic look is to stick to the neutrals. Neutral colours are always a safe choice and will always make your room look cohesive and neat. The OKA Chair in grey is perfect to start your palette build from there. Try to keep it as simple as possible with the decorations you choose, keeping them within the theme you picked for your space.
However, creating a monochromatic look doesn’t mean you always have to stick with the neutrals. If you want to keep your space looking calm and cohesive, but also want to add a touch of colour, try to choose one main colour for your furnishings and match your backdrop to it. This beautiful green MAA Armchair is a great pick as a starter, and you can balance out the tones with some white elements. If you choose another colour as an addition, try to tie it to other pieces. The golden touches of the KOI Side Table work perfectly as an addition to elevate the space without overpowering it.
Burgundy is often associated with higher class society and luxury. If you are looking for a bolder room, go with the stunning PLUM Single Sofa. Play with the burgundy shades and tints, by adding different tones to your wall, to your bed’s headboard and even to your bedding. Keep your rug in the same deep shades and you will achieve a sophisticated monochromatic look.
Soft shades like pink and beige and the perfect starting colours to build a monochromatic colour scheme: they flawlessly harmonise with the other neutral tones of the rest of the elements you choose. A great tip is to start from the ground: find a rug that suits your style, like the LUCY Rug, and work your way up. The simple design of the WALES II Sofa will not take any attention from your rug, but will transform your living room into an elegant space that everyone will want to be in.
Brown tones are also ideal to create a monochromatic look. A brown accent chair like the HERA Armchair is a great way to bring all the neutral tones of your living room together. Since most furnishings tend to be made in wood, brown is an easy colour to work with, giving your room a natural, earthy feel to it. As a way to further the cohesive look of the space, decorate your wall with a print of nature in the same tones and match it also to your carpet. Don’t be scared to play with shapes and textures.
Sometimes neutral tones can feel a bit too soft and even make the room look lifeless. A way to avoid this feeling of stillness and no dimension is by adding textures: the soft texture of the ESSEX Armchair paired with the roughness of the INCEPTION Rug will bring some life into your space. Add some touches of gold and a bold accent piece like the LATZA Centre Table and create a modern and sophisticated living room.
Neutral tones look good with not only white but also black. The beige upholstered DAVIS Armchair is a statement itself. However, if you pair it with a different textured rug and a print with a different pattern, the room will look elegant and effortless. Add the COLOSSEUM Console in black for even more dimension and decorate it nicely with neutral pieces.
The Black and White colour duo is the prime example of the monochromatic colour scheme. Just like the Ying Yang, the black and white monochromatic look will balance your space with just the right amount of darkness and light. You can never go wrong with this pair and using it will for sure give your room a modern look. A black sleek sofa like the George Sofa against a white wall will stand out and you can add a small table like the AGRA Coffee Table to complete the look. Choose trendy decoration like vases and mugs, also in black and white, to place on top of the table and enjoy your modern living room.
