While many designers are famous for their skills of inventive colour combinations, going monochrome is the hot new trend for sophisticated décor in 2016! More and more designers are developing perfectly coordinated one-colour themes for home decor, as sometimes it is the simplest statement that makes the biggest impact.

The key to mastering the monochrome trend is to pay attention to textures. Choosing a versatile colour to create an elegant and streamlined yet punchy decor also helps. Patterns and prints are allowed, as long as the colour story for the decor creates a truly cohesive look.

One thing to remember about a monochromatic colour scheme is that it doesn’t have to be the exact same shade repeated over and over throughout the room. In fact, it’s much more effective if you use one colour in differing shades and tints. For example, if you decide on a grey monochromatic scheme, you can cover the range in everything from charcoal and gunmetal to a soft slate and taupe. The same goes for blue – start with a soft powder blue and work your way up to a royal or midnight blue. It can help to think of monochromatic as sombre, and work your way up shade by shade.

Monochromatic colour is tone on tone or single palette styling. You can get away with a mix of pattern and style - abstract, traditional, contemporary, large, and small scale, it all works when your palette is limited to one colour. Monochromatic colour is a way to layer a space with multiple patterns that work together- you just can't go wrong!

A monochromatic room soothes the senses, as the eye tends to rest when there aren’t lots of colours to distract it. Calm and restful, the one colour home décor trend banks upon the modern concept of minimalism. Minimalistic décor emphasises on simplifying everything; a colour theme that is consistent throughout a home means any piece of furniture can fit anywhere as per needs, increasing the versatility and usability of every single piece.

Monochromatic colour schemes are perfect for small rooms, as it creates the illusion of space. Using value variations is how you keep your new colour scheme from becoming monotonous, as it is rather easy for a one colour scheme to become monotonous without the variation of tone, shade, and tint.

The most attractive way to spice up a one colour home decor theme is with texture and print. Texture adds interest to the room through the uneven surface that varies how the light hits the surface. A texture can appear light and dark, even when created with the same colour. Throw pillows, rugs, and window treatments, are beautiful ways to create texture.

Texture plays a crucial role in injecting depth into a monochromatic room. Without combining various textures and surfaces, your eye will read everything in the room as flat. Different textures include wood - reclaimed, walnut, espresso finished, etc, mixed with the textures of glass, mirror, lacquer, leather, fabric like linen, velvet, silk, etc, and metal detailing is done in gold, iron, chrome, etc.
