What is Monotone?

The word monotone is derived from the Greek word, ‘monotonia’, which means one tone. Hence a monotone interior focuses on a single colour that varies in tone.

Variation is key

Whether it be grey, beige or ivory, there are many shades of the same colour. For the best result when designing a monotone room, incorporate varying shades of your chosen colour palette. A variety of tones adds depth and interest to the space. Grey is a contemporary contender for monotone rooms and brings a welcome air of scandi-sophistication to a space.

An Unexpected Element:

Up the drama ante in your home by introducing an unexpected element like a powerful pop of contrasting colour, wooden or metallic accents and lush indoor greenery. These additions will raise the style stakes in your home.

All the Feels:

Another way to add dimension to a monotone room is with texture. Introduce vinyl, silk, linen, long-pile rugs, rattan and sisal for a room that will have you running your hands over every surface. Matte and reflective surfaces are given a new life when placed side by side, while good lighting will ensure your varying textures are showcased in their best light (pun intended).
