As far as interior design is concerned, few things can pack the bold punch of a monochrome look. It is one of the best ways to elevate the appeal of your home and make a chic and suave statement.
Here are a few tips you can use to get that stylish monochrome look you always wanted.
1. Decide the Style
Before you pick out the furniture, upholstery, and fabric for a monochrome feel, settle on the style you’d want for your home. Will, it is modern and minimalistic – where you’ll go with only pure white or black? Or do you want something more glamorous – like the Art Deco feel that uses more of mirrored pieces against a monochromatic scheme? Decide the style and select the other things accordingly.
2. Use Patterns
People believe that if they go sans colors, the room could end up looking boring and weak. Not necessarily. Use patterns with confidence and jazz up the design. Let stripes check, ikat or zebra patterns work their wonder and lend an interest factor to your room.
3. Maintain Balance
Undoubtedly, black against white creates a huge impact. However, you don’t need a lot of black for that effect. Even a hint of it, in the use of accessories, wallpaper, light fixtures can create a stunning look. For instance, a black chandelier or lamp shade can look pretty dramatic as would a black vase or figurine placed strategically around the room.
4. Go Beyond Black and White
Most people believe that a monochrome look is heavily dependent on black and white. Designers, however, say that it’s better to work with several tints of the same hue and use silvers, grays, and pastels to keep your senses from becoming overwhelmed with too much of one color.
It’s not all that hard to put together a monochrome look together. As long as you have a clear image in your head of what you want, it’s hard to go wrong. It requires some preparation, but once you get down to it, it’s so going to be so much fun, you will never want to stop!
