Monochromatic color schemes are always a timeless classic. You may find the simple back and white is quite boring although its high contrast aspect is easy on the eyes and elegant to boot. But now, designers recently are searching for new ways to create an interesting monochrome palate. Many have come up with clever takes on this style. Below we will be looking at a few interiors that have made this color scheme relevant and interesting in clever ways.

Contemporary designers use the monochrome color scheme in high-end materials like high gloss and laminates. So it can seem a little futuristic and cold in that aspect. The interior in this image highlights a nice way you could imbue a little warmth into this kind of a color scheme with a small addition. The wooden laminates that the down-cabinets have been clad with bring in a more relatable and comfortable vibe to the overall space.

Monochrome might seem like a constraining term but it does have a pretty large context. Black and white does not strictly mean simply black and simply white. It means all the various tints and hues that black and white are comprised of. If you look at this image, you will see how the various takes on black and white make the space seem great in a comfortable way.


3. With gold lighting

Using white or fluorescent lighting in black and white interiors can seem harsh and sterile. It can make the space seem uncomfortable and unapproachable. This is why you should always decorate with dim gold or high gold lighting while designing an interior with such a color scheme. This image shows just how much trendiness this lighting will add to the space.


4. Wooden floors

You can design your interiors with white has the highlight and black in the background if you choose to decorate with alternative wooden floors.


5. Incorporating patterns
