Monochromatic Room

A pretty good example of a monochromatic room is just below. Most people are drawn to them because of the lack of a lot of color and keeping the palette in just one tone with lighter and darker hues of that value. While it can be just about any "color" variation it tends to be mostly in the beiges, taupe and whites and tends to soothe them but some people just don't prefer color as we would normally think of it. And there is nothing wrong with that at all. The room below I think is beautiful. I, however, prefer more "color" and there is nothing wrong with that either.

I do love the mix of plain and checked fabrics on the sofa. The honey pine of the wood brings a certain contrast and it looks like a comfy room.

The bedroom is lush with pillows and bed coverings. All in all a very peaceful palette to this style of decorating.

Another monochromatic theme brings rich style to this living room. The furnishings are exquisite and more formal, but still providing the luxurious comfort most people want in their homes. I love this room also!

This dining room with the upholstered chairs brings pizzazz to the decorating. And who wouldn't enjoy sitting at a table with a "rose tree" centerpiece?! Gorgeous.
