According to Sue, using bright hues in a monochromatic color scheme room can unify interior elements like doors, trim, walls and ceilings. “A color like Rachel Pink can add a joyful energy, especially to older homes in need of a refresh,” she says.
Choosing different paint sheens helps create visual interest in a space that’s all one color.
“Paint ceilings in a higher-gloss sheen to reflect light and give your monochromatic space extra textural depth,” she says.
“A deep salmon pink color like Pressed Flower looks glam and bohemian,” Sue says. A monochromatic color palette can make secondary spaces, like mudrooms, hallways, and bathrooms, seem like a focal point versus an afterthought.
The biggest fear for most DIYers is that a monochromatic color palette will make their newly painted room feel too enclosed.
