Get the Monochrome Look

To get the monochrome look, you can think of using a tone on tone color scheme in your interior, using single color-tints, tones and shades on ornamental items, like paintings, statuettes and of course mosaic art. Yes, mosaic art will not only bring instant interest to your space but it will also break the chromatic monotony and add a visual texture to your home décor.

Monochrome Color Theory

According to the “Color Theory”, which first appeared in the writings of Leone Battista Alberti and Leonardo da Vinci, warm colors are said to arouse and stimulate the viewer, while cool colors promote calmness and relaxation. To make a long story short, cool colors tend to unwind, while warm colors tend to arouse. How does this theory relate to the monochromatic color scheme? In order to create a flourishing emotional aspect in your home décor, one must think of toning the monochromatic palette, between a cooler ( more bluish) to a warmer ( more reddish ) color tones.




Keep it simple!

When it comes to embracing monochrome in your home décor, the main idea is to keep it simple. Remember that word that best describes the modern interior design, so you should make sure to incorporate it into your space. E will surely not allow the space to become as efficient and practical – as it should be. Keep a minimalistic, modern interior which will be functional, clean and stylish!



Last but not least, the colors of your home interior are a direct reflection of your personality. The right color can set a mood and absorb away bad energies, stress, and fatigue. While most of us may not spend time thinking about it, hence the colors we decide to embrace in our home play a major role in the way we feel and think. Some colors can actually improve our moods and affect our lives in several ways. Thus, it’s so important to choose colors wisely when it comes to decorating.
