A monochromatic living room—strong, distinct, unabashedly deliberate—is the reverse of shy. However, for those simply turning from a polychromatic route, the idea of truly designing one can be utterly intimidating. Monochromatic spaces, or those furnished with shades of one main color, are a big trend in interior design.
- Where to begin?
- How much color is too extravagant?
- What can be done to stop a limited palette from appearing rigid or lifeless?
Monochromatic color schemes work because they streamline your design. Layering shades of color with a common hue not only produces a stunning look but also is relatively easy to do, even if you’re not a professional designer.
While there are no guarantees in this crazy color game, one thing’s for sure: Choosing a single hue is certainly easier than trying to pair two (or more) together. Be sure to stay true to yourself and be confident in your personal approach to color. Any room looks great with a monochromatic color palette, but it’s more about how much colors you want to live with and how far you want to take it. Here are some monochromatic living room ideas to get you started.
