If you isolate anyone of these colour strips, you will find yourself with a perfectly harmonized monochromatic colour palette provided by the paint manufacturer. The foundation or true colour is the centre one, with either white or black added to create varying intensities towards a lighter tone or a darker shade.
The advantages: You can’t go wrong; the manufacturer provided a fool proof selection process for the monochromatic palette. Also, the monochromatic scheme is easy to manage, and always looks balanced and visually appealing.
The challenges: The space may be too bland, missing that ‘WOW’ factor unless at least some of the following strategies have been applied.
Here are several examples of monochromatic spaces, along with some valuable tips on how to pull this off in your own space.
