A monochromatic color palette is comprised of colors from the same hue, with variation in shade, tint, and value.

When you think monochromatic, you may think BORING when it comes to interior design. However, varying shades of the same color covering the walls, ceilings, furniture and decor of a room can create a cohesive, intentional look. Calming hues like white and blue can provide a subtle, peaceful aesthetic, while vivid colors like red and purple can be stunning and dramatic!

When designing a space, it is amazing how much we rely on contrast between colors to create interest and depth. When limited to one color, differences in texture and material are necessary to create visual interest and make up for the lack of color contrast in the space. By paying close attention to the details of a carpet’s texture, a furniture’s style, or a fabric’s pattern, you can design an all white room that sings!
