Most houses in the ‘60s have monochrome interior. It means that a room involves one or two colors only, especially on the walls. Black and white is the most common colors used at that time. Monochrome style loses popularity in the '80s and' 90s because it’s considered as unattractive. In these recent years, people become interested again with the style, but they have their own way in creating monochrome look for home interiors.
Since not involving many colors, monochrome style will be easier and calming for the eyes. That’s one reason why the style gets a place in this stressful modern time. Modern people, however, apply monochrome style in more creative ways. The combination of black and white is sometimes considered too strong visually, so they don’t hesitate to replace the colors with gray, beige, or cream. The main key is balance; bringing certain color excessively should be avoided.
For getting rid of monotonous or uninteresting appearance, you’re even allowed to create a unique pattern, like stripes or a zebra. Feel free to use paint or wallpaper. Just open your mind, and then you will find endless possibilities in applying monochrome style. If you already paint the entire walls of a room in white, you may incorporate black furniture pieces and decorative items.
Lighting has always become important element in all rooms, including monochromatic room. It’s alright to use a simple pendant light, but you should add it with creative shade which can make great statement. If you want something more impressive, install a big black chandelier. Try to hang it over a table or another noticeable furniture piece. I hope this post is able to change the wrong old concept which says, a room without bright colors is dull. The displayed monochromatic interiors show that the fact can be otherwise!
