Monochromatic Doesn’t Have to be Boring…


Monochromatic color schemes. The usage of one color in different shades and hues. In order to successfully achieve this look, you need to have a multitude of textures.

It’s something inexpensive and typically the pottery pieces are things you already have at home that can be painted (or at the very least, someone’s grandma has plenty). 

I found the below pic on La Dolce Vita’s blog. The designer merged the delicateness of hydrangea flower petals, linen drapery with the comforts of what I’m hoping is faux fur to the rustic textures of a wooden table & chair stool. I believe the floor is wooden as it appears to be wood planks under the sofa. Painting floors is an easy way to totally transform a space. In this case, it works.
