Decorating with monochromatic colours is classic yet contemporary, but due to its simplicity and ease interior designers will rarely recommend it, explains founder and Manager of Cushion Factory, Sam Rogers.
“Monochromatic colours are all the colours of a single hue, so they are simpler to put together rather than guessing matching colours or contrasting shades and patterns,” Mrs Rogers said.
Classic monochrome is black and white, with all shades of grey in between.
“Monochrome colour schemes are very suited to masculine rooms. While women often prefer to use warm colours from the spectrum, men enjoy the modern feel of a monochromatic colour scheme.
“An alternative for those who can’t bear to erase all traces of colour from their life is to opt for a colour scheme using many different shades of just one colour.
“For example, if your favourite colour is green, you could paint the walls pale sage and choose furniture and accessories in differing tones of the same colour,” Mrs Rogers said
She said to soften the overall effect of monochromatic colours, use texture in the form of soft throws or shaggy rugs for a more feminine feel.
“If you are ready for a simple change of pace in your home, moving to a monochrome scheme could be a step in the right direction.” Mrs Rogers said.
