Be still our chic hearts, monochrome is On the Pedestal. There is something so sophisticated about a singular color palate. It works with neutrals and with colors and is sure to be stunning in wardrobe and in your spaces. In fashion and interiors, a tonal palate adds interest when balanced with mixed textures. The one color task might seem overwhelming-- but, dear friends, we assure you, a hero hue makes design streamline. Monochrome makes for a timeless look, and restful in not only the final product, but in the process too! It's easier to mix in varying pieces from high end to more economical with a true tone.
The best way to give depth and life to a monochrome space isn't just the mixing of high and low pieces, it is mixing mediums. Using hard materials and natural elements with softer pieces balance the shades and add interest to a space. Rich and visceral, mult- tactile spaces go from flat to fab in a monochrome shade. And don't limit yourself to neutrals, all white and all black look sophisticated, but we love seeing color! Adding wallpaper, velvets, leathers, painted wood, and porcelain lamps brings a single color to life.
Want to go timeless in your wardrobe? Streamline in one shade. Is there anything more chic than a black blazer, black leather pants, and black heels? Or this camel look we are dying to take out once cooler weather hits. But don't think you need autumn so go all out in a single color. All white is a staple this summer, but now year round. Keep the same rules in your ensemble as we stated in your decor and design: mix it up with textures and fabrics. A linen dress with a denim jacket in the same hue or leather skirt with a knubby sweater. And don't forget the velvets and wools that are soon to come with fall!
