Visualizer: Fatih Beserek  

Sometimes you can work with what you have. In this room the wall is slightly curved, so the designer chose to highlight this by partially covering the wall with dark wood slats, and letting the wooden panels lead the eye to the gentle curve of the wall.

Visualizer: Pavel Alekseev  

A grey and white print works together with light wooden slats.

Light and Modern Sophistication In A Two Bedroom Apartment

This refined two-bedroom apartment is the work of design team Vishnyakov & Pokrovsky. Titled “Honey White”, its bright interior remains minimalist but sweetly warm, emphasizing texture and material over extraneous decoration. This streamlined approach allows classic details to take center stage – additions like elegant molding, tray ceilings, and subtle medallions lend their character to every room. On the other hand, furniture and lighting tend to stick with modern influences for an interesting contrast. And if you love the look of brass accents, this is a fantastic home to search for inspiration.

The tour opens to a cozy living room outfitted with a mix of contemporary and mid-century inspired furniture. Abundant sunlight filters through the breathtaking floor-to-ceiling bay windows, casting shadow and enhancing the depth of the molded architectural accents used throughout. This union of traditional and trendy is best showcased by those gorgeous chevron floors in dark wood – a great modern take on the herringbone so treasured in older buildings.

Because of the unique home layout, separate living and dining spaces would have felt like a restriction to both rooms. This sliding glass partition helps shield noise without breaking up the line of sight.

Of course, while entertaining guests, a simple slide of the door makes it easier for visitors to mingle across each space.

While the functionality of the space is worth admiring, so are the furniture choices. Olive green accents bring tremendous character to the space, especially to reinforce the mid-century Danish influence that went into the statement chair design. What a beautiful piece!

The satin brass floor lamp is called Heron, a design by Michael Verheyden.

When taken together, the green and brass and chocolate brown floors come together to foster an almost spring-like atmosphere. It’s a fresh and inviting theme with plenty of warmth.

And the dining room! Fun design offers plenty to admire about the table and chairs, but in terms of first impressions, the brassy hoop pendant lights influence the rest of the space with their Art Deco flair.

The kitchen itself remains relatively compact – an arrangement that highlights this area’s role as a social space rather than a utilitarian one.

Marble is an interesting choice for the hexagonal tiles – a timeless material in a trending form.

The entryway makes a stately impression with its high ceilings and eye-catching molding. A modern pendant instantly draws all eyes and offsets the classic appeal of the subtle brassy details.

Distinctive retro-inspired green chairs create a very garden-like setting on the enclosed patio.

In the master bedroom, an interesting take on classic wall panels continues the mixed-era theme.

The side table lamps are from the IC Collection by Michael Anastassiades, a series very popular with brass fans and a perfect match for this elegant space.

Hans Wegner’s famous Wishbone chair sits at the well-accessorized cantilever vanity. The fully mirrored wall is a luxurious asset for getting ready in the morning, but it also pulls double duty to reflect as much sunlight as possible back into the room.

Color palette, furniture arrangements, and overall style make the guest bedroom appear strikingly similar to the other one – the major difference being the use of rounded furniture accessories rather than linear ones.

Iconic AJ Floor Lamps by Arne Jacobsen flank the bed to either side.

One bathroom tries its hand at industrial influence, continuing the brass vanity pipes toward the left to serve a second purpose. It’s a clever addition to an otherwise already-handsome space.

The other bathroom makes an exceptionally bold impression thanks to hexagonal tiles with dark, eye-catching grout.

Why It’s Time to Go Monochrome

When it comes to redesigning a room, the first decision is usually, “which color?”.

And sometimes, that can be the hardest choice of all. I can’t be the only person who has excitedly walked into a paint store, then left a short time later, overwhelmed with a thousand similar-but-different options. Who knew there could be so many shades of white? And where do I even begin with furniture?

Here’s one way we bypass having to coordinate colors: designing a room with a monochromatic color palette. It’s an incredibly simple way to bring elegance to your interiors without hiring a designer. And it’s becoming increasingly popular in interior design.

In this article, we’ll outline why using a single color palette is an excellent choice for any interior, and show you how to recreate the look on your own. We think you’ll be eager to embrace monochrome in no time.

All you have to do is decide which color!

Why go for monochrome?

Monochrome easily creates harmony — because it’s really all one base color.

By choosing a monochromatic color palette, you have your unifying element from the start. ‘Monochromatic’ simply means is that you take one basic color and apply color theory to create a range of hues by playing with the various tones, shades, and tints that can be created from the original.

For those of us who are starting to experiment with interior design, the prospect of putting an entire room together can be daunting. After all, there are so many different components to take into account: furniture, floor coverings — don’t even get me started on art and decor. Going monochrome will guide your decisions, and pull everything together seamlessly.

But shouldn’t design have lots of different colors?

Yes and no. By now, we’re all familiar with the colors that we use to fill our spaces impact us psychologically. While bright colors like orange can provide a much-needed burst of energy, and earth tones make us feel more grounded — sticking to one color palette helps create a soothing and restful environment.

Research by The University of Texas found that websites with a monochromatic background palette were easiest for others to read. They attribute these findings to the fact that the brain has less to process and therefore is able to better concentrate on the website’s content. You can take this same principle and use a single color palette to showcase your space’s best features.

Since monochromatic designs have such a relaxing effect, it’s often utilized in spaces that need an extra calming boost. Bedrooms are, of course, an excellent option, as are those too-often-stressful home offices. But you shouldn’t be afraid to branch out a little — experiment with monochrome in your bathroom to create a spa-like feel, or use it in your children’s playroom to help keep all that energy at bay.

How to rock monochrome in your home:

The words “monochromatic design” might still feel a little worrisome. Maybe you’re picturing a room where the sofas blend into the walls and every element of the room is the exact same shade. I’m going to let you in on a secret: Monochromatic interior design offers plenty more than just a single shade.

Since the shades in your interior will tend to blend together, texture and pattern are the easiest, and often one of the cheapest, ways to add visual interest. In fact, while too many patterns are usually a design no-no, monochrome is an occasion in which you can let your mixing-and-matching skills run wild.

As you pick out the design elements that fit your room, be careful to ensure that the undertones, or the yellow, green, pink or blue hues that stand out in a color when it’s hit by when hit by the light, match. Two design elements with separate undertones will not look right when placed side-by-side, but similar undertones can “match”, even when their patterns or textures vary greatly.

It’s also best to think of the unifying color palette as the base of the room rather than the whole picture. Think of it as a pie; the color you choose to follow isn’t the entire pie – just the filling. But no pie is complete without the crust. In this case, the “crust” is the neutrals and complimentary accents.  Focus on complimenting your main color with a variety of neutrals; Pops of white and black give the eye a place to rest from the intensity of the main shade.

If you’re uninspired by neutrals, natural materials can work in much the same fashion. Use wooden furniture to break up your bedroom or a set of ultra-modern metal chairs to making your dining space really stand out.

Whichever group you choose, just be sure to provide plenty of coordinating pops throughout the room. Not only will they provide that always-essential visual interest, but they will pull the room together to give it a professionally-designed feel.

Single color spaces are often the subject of heated debates. Some think they’re too simple to be worthwhile. But, when done correctly, we can attest that they are the epitome of easy elegance.
