So why not go into Monochrome?

Monochromatic interior design offers plenty more than just a single shade. Since the shades blend together in the interior, the texture and pattern are the easiest, and often one of the cheapest. This adds value to visual interest. While too many patterns are usually common design, monochrome will let your mixing-and-matching skills run wild. When selecting design elements appropriate to your rooms (living room, bedroom, etc.), be careful in color selection. Ensure that the undertones, or the yellow, green, pink or blue hues that stand out in a color when hit by the light, match. Two design elements with distinct undertones will not look good if arranged beside each other. But, similar undertones can “match”, even when their patterns or textures vary significantly.

It is wise to imagine the unifying color palette as the base of the room instead rather  than the whole picture. Concentrate on complimenting your main color with a variety of neutrals. Pops of white and black is giving the eye a place to rest from the intensity of the main shade. Use wooden furniture to break up your bedroom or a set of ultra-modern metal chairs to making your dining space really stand out. Provide some coordinating snaps in the whole room for whatever group you choose. They will provide the vital visual interest and will create a room with professional designed feeling.
