Boom. I whole-heartedly agree. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE color, I love all the colors! But there is something so pure about a monochromatic neutral design. Something that always keeps me coming back. I have designed in this pallatte over, and over, and over again. And I always will! Whenever my clients are in doubt about what color scheme they want, I always keep neutral-monochromatic.
Sometimes crisp black and white, sometimes all the grey areas, but when the base of your design is done in neutrals, it is classic. The great thing is that you can leave it as it is, or layer in the accent colors! Change them out seasonally! Every color goes with neutrals. If you want to keep it all neutral, just layer in the textures! Timeless.
The brilliance about a monochromatic-neutral color scheme is also that it works with any and every design style. From French Country to Scandinavian. There is simply not a design style that doesn’t work in neutrals. So when in doubt, white it out! Then build out with texture, contrast, and if you feel inclined- color.
Now for the fun part- examples! I rounded up a bunch of beautiful monochromatic-neutral designs in a wide range of rooms and styles. These designs are not mine! They just hold a piece of my heart. 😉 I found all of these images via Pinterest! I hope you love this little monochromatic-neutral gallery of gorgeousness as much as I do.
