And lately, it seems you can't pick up a magazine without seeing a monochromatic wall scheme (where walls and trim are painted one color). It's a fabulous look and I have to admit I plan on using it in my own home.
Using a monochromatic look envelopes a room in color and essentially creates a canvas on which to create your design. It can be used to create dramatic rooms or soothing rooms. Traditional spaces or contemporary.
Let's have a look!
The inky blue walls in this traditional room create a great backdrop for the red velvet chairs and multi-colored carpet. Had the window and wall trim been painted white, the lines of the room would have been broken up and not yielded such an enveloping effect.
Here's a bedroom with a quiet palette. See how the color wraps the room in softness?
A wonderfully masculine room draped in a charcoal hue.
A spring green hue creates a cheery traditional office space.
Pale green walls create a soft and airy living room.
