Warm yellow and beige tones mix with icy greens and touches of turquoise. The color is most vibrant on the drapery, skirted table and trim on pillows, but your eyes don't have to work hard to connect it all. Another part of what works in this example is the way the color varies.
You can see that while all three rooms utilize hues from opposite ends of the color wheel, they do so in varying degrees. The Branca bedroom uses just touches of magenta to offset the dominant acid green, while Gambrel's version spreads yellow and mustard tones throughout the space. In Fairley's family room, the sky blue and coral are applied in nearly equal doses.
Notice that all four of the monochromatic spaces we've featured are den or study spaces. In an oddly parallel way, an allover color scheme really lends itself to a single-minded activity such as working, studying, or movie watching. It goes without saying that you'll want to select your color wisely, but we're saying it anyway. This is a situation where a little research into color psychology would be very wise. Also worth noting is that monochromatic interiors rarely use a true hue, but rather a shade softened by a little bit of grey or brown.
Speaking of overload, the media room pictured below really pushes the envelope--but it works. Although nearly every surface is patterned, most of the ornamentation appears in low-contrast color tones, which is what saves the space. Would you live here? How about if the walls were a solid white or cream instead of the horizontal stripe?
