MONOCHROME: the power of decorating with one colour.

In interior design, the monochromatic style involves using a single colour or shades of the same colour to create a cohesive and visually appealing space.

The word monochrome means 'one colour' and in design, it refers to a space where all the elements are in shades of the same colour or hue. Sleek, sophisticated and minimalistic; a monochromatic interior design always looks elegant and timeless.

Therefore, the focus of monochrome décor is on creating depth and interest through different textures and materials. For example, if you want to decorate a monochromatic living room or bedroom, the different shades of a colour should be visible on the walls, furniture, curtains and accessories.

Thanks to its versatility, interior decorators can use the monochrome style in any room, including the kitchen and bathroom. They can work with any given colour, use it as a base colour and decorate the space according to your personal taste. The benefits of monochrome décor are many but the best one is that it creates a calming and relaxing atmosphere, as the lack of visual clutter and the repetition of a single colour expresses a sense of harmony and balance.

To achieve a great result, all textiles, furniture and materials must be used or designed to complement each other, as this is the only way to decorate in an impactful way. Whether you are passionate about minimalist or modern interior design, monochrome décor will completely transform your space.


The best colour is the colour that you love and has a special meaning for you. Neutral shades of blue, grey, beige, and green are perfect if you want to decorate a relaxing space otherwise, for a more dramatic effect you can use bold and vibrant colour as your base, such as red, yellow, orange or purple.


Once you've chosen your colour, it's time to start decorating. Here are some tips to help you create a beautiful and cohesive monochromatic space:

  • Avoid a flat and boring look, vary the shades of your chosen colour. For example, you might use a light shade for the walls, a darker shade for the furniture, and a medium shade for the curtains.

  • Mixing textures is a great way to add interest and depth to your monochromatic space. For example, you might use a plush velvet sofa, a cosy knit throw, and a sleek leather ottoman.

  • Adding metallic accents can provide nice contrasts. Gold, silver, and bronze are all great options that can add a touch of glamour.

  • Using plants can help break up the colour and provide a fresh and natural feel.

  • Easy to Coordinate: With a monochromatic décor, you don't have to worry about coordinating different colours and patterns. Everything in the space is in the same colour family, making it easy to create a statement look.

  • Calming and Relaxing: Monochromatic spaces have a calming and relaxing effect, making them a great choice for bedrooms, living rooms, and other spaces where you want to unwind.
