The monochromatic design means a usage of only one colour in the interior. This kind of choice may create a monotonous ambience if we are not following the basic rules. Therefore, we are presenting you few instructions that will help you to revive the one coloured space and to make up for the lack of colours and contrast in your interior. Take a look at these 6 tips that will help you to revive your home and to create a pleasant place to live.
1. Colours for small and large areas
First of all, you should pay attention to the size of your place, as well as the number of windows. Dark colours visually reduce the space, and light colours increase it. We should choose light or dark colour depending on the size of the area. For small rooms ideal choice is white or another light colour. It is recommended to experiment with interesting combinations only in the big areas.
2. How to choose the ideal colour?
After the first decision you should choose the ideal colour and shade. That should be the one that suits and make the place to shine in its full beauty. For example – blue, dark blue and light blue. Shades play an important role too. Except the right colour, it is important to choose the most suitable shade.
3. Tinting the place with colours
One very important step in order to revive your home is tinting. If you choose a medium blue, for example, then you should paint the walls with the basic colour and to use nuances in accessories and materials in the interior. This will soothe the monotony that creates only one shade. So, this is an essential element in the revival of a single coloured space.
4. Three enriching shades
To accent our “blue” choice we should pick three more shades of colours that complement with it. In case we choose the blue, complementary shades can be gray, black, steel, cloud gray or charcoal gray. For any other selected colour we should carefully choose three complementary shades.
5. Colours for accessories, sofas, lamps …
The three selected shades should not be over-used, but should be noticeable at the first glance. Use them for example on the sofas armchairs using some plush with the same nuances. In our case blue or gray leather armchair and accessories give an interesting monochromatic appearance to the room. When we add yellow lamps we immediately get a pleasant atmosphere.
6. One or more strong colours – trick of designers
Using details with strong colours in small quantities indicates that you are confident with your taste. A bit of black, gray and white neutralize the basic dominant colour that you choose. One or few strong colours of small details in your interior will completely define its appearance, and the revival project will be completed.
All these rules apply for any colour you choose for your interior. So, no matter what choice you made, it is recommended to follow these six basic rules for the revival of a single coloured space. The most important thing is to go step by step. From the selection of the basic colour, shading, to the small details that will complete your project by choosing the right colour.
