House Interior With Monochromatic Color Schemes
Choosing colors for your new home or a renovation can prove a daunting task; mix it up too much, and you create chaos, but if everything is in the same color palette, you risk redefining dull. There are several choices when it comes to color schemes for your house interior. One example is monochromatic color schemes. Monochromatic color schemes are one-color design plans. Unlike analogous color schemes in which colors next to each other on the color wheel are used, a one-color, or single hue, plan varies just the intensity or tint. For example, a kitchen can employ shades of yellow, with different shades of yellow used for the walls, floor tiles, draperies and furnishings. A neutral shade of white added to the ceiling or trim breaks up the yellow. Mixing various secondary colors into the primary monochromatic color also aids in creating differences in the look.
As long as the primary color is the same, then it is still considered a monochromatic color scheme. The most commonly added secondary colors are gray, white and black, which help to change the basic tone of the color. Different textures also add complexity to monochromatic color schemes. Monochromatic color schemes tends to look more cohesive than a mixture of colors. It also tends to provide an artistic look to a room by using contrasting hues to attract attention and create greater focus on the different components of the room.
