Here are simple ways to add monochrome textures in your homes

Before getting into how you can emulate monochrome textures in your homes, it’s important to understand what “monochrome” colour schemes actually are. They comprise of different hues and tints of the same colour. They are interpreted in a space in a way that makes it seem like it’s fading to black. It doesn’t necessarily have to be either completely black, completely white, or any shade of grey. It can be blue, red, mauve – all of them fading into black. Now that you know what it is you’re doing, let’s take a look at how you can add monochrome textures in your homes:

 

1. From ash to light

There are two types of textures used in this particular interior design – one is through the floor and completely tangible, while the other one is through the lighting, and is intangible. The ash texture on the floor is definitely on the darker side, while the light and its illumination creates a nice, whimsical shadowing that highlights the rest of the tones used throughout the room. This is a good way to add textures in a fanciful way.

 

2. Using the axis

Another tried and true way of adding monochromatic textures in a home interior is by using the axis for reference. If the x-axis defines the horizontal surfaces, and y-axis defines the vertical surfaces, then you can use one of them to introduce the darker hues, and the other one to translate the lighter hues. The horizontal axis has been used for textures in the dining area in this image.

 

3. A visual tableau

It’s important to note that there are never any hard-and-fast rules while determining the placement of monochrome textures. Sometimes, you just have to use your eyes to create a balanced affect. However, you need tons of experience to get this right. The harmony of light and dark tones in this kitchen interior is a great example of how to be abstract with your textures.

 

4. Knowing how to contrast

It can be difficult to introduce contrast in a monochrome interior design, as it is challenging to balance all the gradating hues and tints of the same colour. However, if you’re working with two extreme tones like black or while, emerald or mint green, red or pink, etc. then you add contrast by using the darker tones as textures.

 

5. With furniture

Lastly, the most common and impactful way to introduce monochrome textures in your interior designs is by using the furniture as your canvas. The converging textures of the upholstery, shapes, and different surfaces tends to create a beautiful symphony that emulates an interesting aura within a space.
