Here’s another great example of how mint can soften the contrast between colorful and neutral: the sofa pictured is plain white, set on the vibrant red rug, decorated with colorful pillows, but as your eyes catch the minty wall, the feeling of overwhelming contrast instantly disappears.
Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
The thing that we love the most about many of these delightful, contemporary modular sofas is the freedom they present with the colors that you can bring into the living room. The sofa is no longer a monochromatic addition and different vivacious hues can be coupled with neutral modular pieces to bring in the best of both worlds. With these innovative and uber-comfy modular designs decorating ease does come in more ways than one.
When working with the constraints of a monochromatic room, textural contrast becomes your best pal! Instead of adding greater number of contrasting shades of white, turn to different materials and diverse finishes to create visual interest in the room. Wooden decor, accessories and accent walls usher in warmth while concrete walls and flooring provide a steely, more stoic presence. Exposed brick walls might bring a hint of red or orang-y tinge to your all-white living room, but they take nothing away from its gorgeous monochromatic finish.
Paint your walls in a darker shade of beige and leave the lighter shades for the furniture. By doing so, your sofas will instantly become the focal point of the room!
Sure, monochromatic living rooms need not be restricted to white alone. But white is undoubtedly one of the best colors to use in public spaces as it gives the room a relaxing modern appeal and a pleasant environment. Monochromatic living rooms with bolder or darker colors can feel a touch too tacky and you will get pretty bored with that overwhelming visual very quickly. Then you end up with a room that is ungainly, boring and just an eye-sore that needs a complete makeover. In case of the all-white living room, adding an additional layer of color down the line is both easy and cost-effective.
