We have lived most of our lives believing that more colors are better in terms of decoration. And while that may be true with some space, we can’t help but think that a monochromatic color palette can be very beautiful in itself – especially in the living room. Just imagine: a clean all-white room that is clean without having to try too hard or a gray living room that exudes style from floor to ceiling.
And it’s not just the white or gray monochromatic color scheme that we like: it’s the unexpected red, blue and pink colors that brighten up a room and turn space into something completely new.
In pursuit of inspiration for the best monochromatic living rooms, we look for Instagram high and low. Below, we collected 17 of our favorite spaces that convinced us to coordinate the colors of our house as quickly as possible.
1. King of the Jungle
Without trying, the green palette can directly convert the space inside into an air-conditioned outdoor version. Here, we like how the decor plays into a lush green color with accent rooms with golden coconut leaves, excess plants and carefree forest creatures.
2. Crisp & Clean
The secret to a room that looks really clean is the right white: not too blue, but certainly not cream. The reward for finding this pure white color is the space that looks really easy and put together. After that, you just need to remember to keep it clean.
3. Go Greige
If we had to choose our favorite neutral, there would be a strong bond between gray and beige – both flattering in their own way. That’s why we like “greige,” the perfect blend of two colors. Colors that match other subtle tones, such as soft green sage and cream. But when he took over the whole room alone, it was pure magic.
4. Into the Blue
Nothing really radiates the essence of importance other than deep dark blue. In monochromatic spaces, the best are accented with large paintings, thick curtains, velvety touches, and, of course, classic chandeliers. If you ask us, after 5 minutes in this room, we will feel at the top of the world.
5. Pearly White
We have said it before and we will say it again: we like the white room. But white rooms that use a creamy feel, are as good (if not better). The neutral color palette is soothing and soothing, as if stress is gone as soon as you sit on one of the comfortable sofas.
6. Tangerine Dream
In our opinion, we believe that orange is the most undervalued decoration color. This is used sparingly in the kitchen. But in the bedroom and living room? Rarely. In the living room, we like the idea of mixing colors to present a palette: with peach walls, blood orange paintings, and crushed velvet tangerine pillows.
7. Brown but Not Boring
As far as colors go, chocolate has never had the best reputation. But where some see limitations, we see opportunities. It’s all about mixing and matching textures: bronze metal, old wood, luxurious chocolate. Results? Simple and boring monochromatic rooms.
8. Stone Cold
Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a fireplace in our home. But that does not mean we can not enter the aesthetic stone into our homes. All that is needed is a soft gray color palette and a little creativity. And if all else fails, a standalone electric stove will succeed.
9. Berry Sweet
Is that pink? Is that purple? The world may never know, but what we believe is that this berry color palette makes a monochromatic color palette for any living space. For maximum color results, use minimal accessories to let the colors of the walls and furniture speak for themselves.
10. Black Is the New Black
It is a universally recognized truth that black will always be stylish. It’s beautiful and matches any other color (yes, even chocolate). But alone? That’s dynamite. Fresh picking on a monochromatic color palette prevents it from getting too dark by inserting a small tinge of bright color.
11. Under the Sea
Somewhere between green and blue lies seafoam colors which are undoubtedly attractive as interior design color palettes. To play on the idea of a fertile underwater feeling, combining plants, luxurious fabrics and twinkling lights. Yes, you are a part of this world.
12. Neutral Pink
Pink can, and should, be considered neutral. Dusty, blush pink acts more like a neutral beige than the color of the accent. With that, the neutral pink blush theme is what a room needs. Add a pink sectional sofa and beautiful pink curtains and a room that feels very sophisticated.
13. Sleek Slate
When it comes to gray decoration, the most difficult disaster is between warm or cold tones. But this slate color palette makes us believe that cool gray is the way to go. The best part? It’s a great pair of clean white – so you can make it an open plan with a white kitchen cupboard.
14. Rouge Allure
Red is one color that evokes many emotions: romance, excitement, drama, strength. And in a room, this means there is a huge flow of energy. Instead of loading this color palette with paint (which we usually do right away), choose accented furniture and accessories to make this deep color come alive.
15. Good as Gold
With its architecture inspired by Roman columns, there is no doubt whether this room was picked directly from a sophisticated flat on the Upper East Side of NYC. But you don’t have to live in a high-rise apartment to mimic the feeling of this apartment. Yellow gold decoration pieces scream luxury.
16. Midcentury Moody
There have been a number of times when we didn’t like the modern medieval decor in the living room. Case in point: this sky-blue living room has everything we want. In addition to wooden cabinets and large clocks, blue sofas and blue wallpapers put everything together.
17. Calm, Cool & Collected
We are already poetic about gray. But this warm gray must be one of our favorites. The way the cement-colored walls blend with the sofa and curtain invites guests to sit and stay for a while. Not to mention, can you imagine how comfortable this room is on a cold winter’s night?
