Scout Decor: Monochromatic Rooms

D’Marge highlights a few ways to dress a minimalistic monochromatic room that goes hard for one colour.

A few tips for getting it right:

  • Use the same palette, but not the same shade. Incorporating variations on your base colour is a more interesting and more refined take on monochrome.
  • Inject texture. The way to keep a single-colour scheme from getting stale is to play with patterns and materials. Try a plush rug, a leather sofa, or glossy paint on the walls.
  • Don’t be afraid to contrast. Yes, even a monochrome room can benefit from the occasional dash of something different. That dash thwarts boredom while simultaneously emphasising the single-coloured-ness of the rest of the room.
