When people think of monochrome interiors, they usually think of all black, grey or white decor. It’s not wrong, it’s just not all inclusive. Monochrome basically means ‘one color’. So, as long as an interior is made up of one color or various shades of that color, it’s monochromatic.
It can be blue, pink, yellow, grey or any other color so long as it’s just that color.
Here are 10 monochromatic examples of the different ways interiors can be decorated along the color spectrum.
