Starting the interior décor trends of early 2000’s with a bang, minimal accents of neutral colors and monochromes have been in fashion ever since. There is something extremely futuristic but still homely. Meanwhile, this color palate is attractive. It feels like home – only with some great design interventions that give it a luxurious look.
When you think about dressing your home in casual luxury, the color palate would be either neutral or monochrome. Achromatic only works with futuristic schemes, so this would be your initial mood board.
If you are looking for designing your interior in a casual monochrome and neutral color scheme, here are some great ways for you!
1) Track Lights, beige and wood
This interior design is the pinnacle of low-brow luxury. The feature length floor-to-ceiling wooden laminated wall shelving is the epitome of sophisticated. The accented track lights enhance the casual appeal. Surprisingly, the beige floor scheme adds instant charm to this space.
2) Add in the monochromes
When you add in the monochromes in the mix, it looks more interesting. The addition of a little grays slightly mixes things up. This spruce up the ambiance exponentially; meanwhile, it keeps the browns from taking over and being visually dominant. It creates a tonal dissonance that is extremely appealing.
3) Using textures
Using a little texture in a setting like this definitely spice things up. It still keeps the aesthetic casual, pleasant and luxurious. The feature wall has been decked out in retro wall tiles which bring in a little stylistic expression to the setting. Moreover, the wooden accents brought in through the vanity adds a charming contrast to the mix that makes this scheme better.
4) Visually dynamic
To avoid looking boring and dreary, the only way is to make it visually dynamic. You can always strategically place all contrasting hues within the same room to create a great visual dynamic.
5) Through lighting interventions
If you find that the neutral/monochrome scheme is dull, and you want to create a unique setting, some clever cove-light applications can be the perfect way to imbue a little glamour without looking redundant or going overboard with the design.
