When it comes to redesigning a room, the first decision is usually, “which color?”.
And sometimes, that can be the hardest choice of all. I can’t be the only person who has excitedly walked into a paint store, then left a short time later, overwhelmed with a thousand similar-but-different options. Who knew there could be so many shades of white? And where do I even begin with furniture?
Here’s one way we bypass having to coordinate colors: designing a room with a monochromatic color palette. It’s an incredibly simple way to bring elegance to your interiors without hiring a designer. And it’s becoming increasingly popular in interior design.
In this article, we’ll outline why using a single color palette is an excellent choice for any interior, and show you how to recreate the look on your own. We think you’ll be eager to embrace monochrome in no time.
All you have to do is decide which color!
Why go for monochrome?

By choosing a monochromatic color palette, you have your unifying element from the start. ‘Monochromatic’ simply means is that you take one basic color and apply color theory to create a range of hues by playing with the various tones, shades, and tints that can be created from the original.
For those of us who are starting to experiment with interior design, the prospect of putting an entire room together can be daunting. After all, there are so many different components to take into account: furniture, floor coverings — don’t even get me started on art and decor. Going monochrome will guide your decisions, and pull everything together seamlessly.
