Applying a monochromatic or one-color palette is one of our favorite ways to add style and luxury to any room. It’s also one of the easiest ways to experiment with color and achieve harmony in space. Monochromatic color schemes may use only one color, but in all that particular color’s tints, shades, and glory. One example of a monochromatic scheme is to pair pinks with true reds, and even deep burgundies. Despite the limitation of using one hue, you’ll have more freedom than you think and the more you layer your color, the better the effect; it’s even better if they don’t match!

Below are some examples, in rainbow order, to get you inspired!
