While there's definitely something to be said for rooms that weave in a ton of color, we're equally fond of monochromatic interiors. There's nothing better than drawing inspiration from a myriad of shades belonging to the same color family, unless of course, you're one of the clever few that have been able to figure out how to make use of a single perfect shade. This tone-on-tone look is dramatic, intriguing, and very au courant.
And there are plenty of benefits to sticking with one color. For instance, it will narrow your focus — you'll only spend time searching for accents that share the exact same shade. Plus, a limited palette seemingly has the power to make a room look and feel more open. Scroll on for seven stunning spaces that have truly captured the art of the tone-on-tone look, a trend that we're calling "the new monochrome."
1. Match your headboard to the wall.
Hunter green is a color that's getting a lot of attention these days, and it quite possibly has never looked better than in this bedroom belonging to journalist and blogger Kate Watson-Smyth of Mad About the House. We think it's brilliant that she matched her tufted wingback headboard to the green accent wall behind. And kudos for the matching wall sconces.
2. Pair decorative objects with the room color.
If you want to ease into the tone-on-tone trend, opt for greige. It's a gentle color that won't overwhelm a room, and it's oh-so-soothing. Whether you choose greige or something else, take notes from this guest bedroom designed by the team over at Avenue Lifestyle and bring in decorative items and art pieces that echo the same shade.
