Single color-The commitment to monochromatic spaces is gaining strength. As far as home design is concerned, we are betting more and more on simple, clean and welcoming environments that counteract the frenetic pace imposed on us by the day to day. Two renowned experts: an interior designer. And an architect help us discover the keys and decorative possibilities of monochromatic spaces.
A single color can accent a space
The use of a color protagonist can help you define a space or accentuate it. Thus, a boring space can become a space with a lot of personality.
Play with color to create a range of shades with different shades. For example, a monochromatic blue space may contain tones such as cobalt, indigo, steel blue, etc. In a space in green we can play with the emerald, the olive or mint green.
Monochrome does not mean monotonous
When you hear about monochromatic design, many will think of a boring and unfunny space. Nothing is further from reality. A monochromatic design is a simple and easy. But very effective, way to design a sophisticated space.
Starting from a neutral base, the monochromatic decoration allows to create an interesting range of nuances. And shades that will stand out thanks to a successful choice of materials and textures. You will be surprised to discover the result when mixing tonalities, patterns and different patterns.
It is an easy and low-cost
resource Color is a very economical resource to modify a space without major changes or remodeling. Andrea Hyperbolic, from the Casa-Colombo. And Hyperbolic Architecture study, affirms that in projects with scarce budgets the use of color can be decisive. With painting you can completely change the perception and style of an environment, adding. Or removing depth or luminosity. It also serves to mark divisions between different spaces. Or unify them and, of course, to disguise irregularities. “
In his project Rocha Apartment- in Barcelona, the architects used color to delimit and mark the area of the corridor. Which a prior was a simple space of passage. We wanted the route between the day area and the bedrooms to become a special place inside the house.
A monochromatic background will offer a harmonious and relaxing sensation.
For its simplicity, this option will bring an air of serenity in your home. If you value this aspect, this is option because it avoids excessive visual stimulation. The key is to maintain the continuity of the nuances of color, regardless of whether the patterns, patterns or textures are different.
The most recommended spaces in the house to apply a single color are the bedrooms, to improve the night rest, and in the bathroom to feel like in a spa.
A single tone brings harmony, simplicity and sophistication
The use of a single color on doors, skirting boards, wardrobe fronts, shelves, moldings and furniture creates, automatically, a simple, harmonious and visually more spacious space. The simple and the simple is almost always the most sophisticated.
You can see how to achieve a clean and elegant minimalism with little effort and cost. We start from the desire of our client, historian and curator of contemporary art, to have a completely white space, where he could host various works of contemporary art. We got to the point of choosing this color for all the elements: the kitchen sink and all the kitchen taps, sinks and showers are Matt white.
In addition, a single color makes decoration easier
Focusing on a single color and its nuances we will have a great unifying element from the beginning and space will breathe coherence. Everything will work together and the decisions to be made will be simpler.
Although a prior it may seem an overly restrictive option, it is not like that. By limiting the color palette to the space background, we are free to experiment by mixing other patterns and textures.
Add depth to space
A monochrome interior does not have to be a flat interior if you work well with the use of color. Tonal variation can be used to give depth to the space, mixing darker or lighter shadows, but without including excessive tones.
To simplify, you start with a single color, the base color, and create a palette through its derivatives; with lighter and darker variants as secondary options.
