Ask any designer – color is one of the most powerful and versatile tools you have. Color is able to lift a mood and stimulate the senses. It is an essential part of practically any interior design. Depending on what you want to achieve with your space, the colors you choose and the way you use them will change. For those looking to create a home sanctuary, a break from the hyperstimulation of the modern world, color can make a difference.
“If you want a relaxing space,” note our designers, “try to stick to one color in several different tones.” Sticking to a single monochromatic color palette will reduce visual noise and create a cohesive look. Two things that work wonders when it comes to creating a calming space. Below we share seven beautiful monochrome rooms where we would love to sit back and relax.
