Monochrome

Monochrome has been a prevailing trend in interior design for a number of years. It is a very simple and sophisticated choice as it lends itself to a classic and timeless look. Using nuances of one colour – a tint here, a tone there and shades everywhere else – the effect, when done correctly, is stunning.

There are more than a few pro’s to adopting a monochromatic look. Your colour palette is decided for you and can range from white all the way to black following colours in that vein, also your colour selection automatically works well together given they are all variations of the same hue.

In this gorgeous room created by the McKenzie & Willis Interior Design team they have opted for a monochromatic scheme with a generous use of darker tones and an earthy colour palette. The ‘Scott’ black leather sofa by Carezza is the focal point – black is an achromatic colour so can be included any monochromatic scheme, as can white. Dark browns are featured in differing hues in the wallpaper, cushions and dining table then move to a lighter shade in the lamp, side tables and throw with the lightest shade featured in the Podium Special occasional chair by Furninova.

As always, texture remains an important element to consider regardless of what interior style you adopt. The depth in this gorgeous room has been achieved through the inclusion of a number of different textures. The soft leather, textured wallpaper, smooth marble table tops, warm timber, woven dining chairs and a plush rug. Considering shine and shape are two other ways to add depth to your space.

When your choices are limited based on your choice of colour as a monochromatic foundation it actually makes decorating much easier to manage – it takes out a lot of the guess work and you know that the colours will look perfectly at home with one another. As long as you remember the importance of texture, you will end up with a beautiful, warm scheme with a sense of depth even though you are playing with one colour range!
