So, what is a monochromatic colour scheme?

Monochromatic colour schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints.
*Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker colour, grey or black.

How exactly do you apply the tone-on-tone colour trend to event design?

Let textures talk

Using the same colour palette throughout a space can make one piece blend into another, it is crucial to employ other design principles to make focal points stand out. Try to pick accents with a lot of texture and depth so that your space doesn’t end up looking “flat”.

MONOCHROME-PG-6

MONOCHROME-BERRY
ITEMS (from left to right): Halo wingback armchair in merlot, Lucienne rectangle velvet ottoman in burgundy redSola stool in raspberry

 

Play with scale

It can be hard to create a focal point when most of your pieces are all in the same colour scheme. Another trick to avoid a boring space is to play with scale. Don’t be afraid to pick oversized pieces and small accents! The juxtaposition will create interest, especially if those big and small pieces are varying hues of the colour you are working with.
