Gray color game
Because the color choices in the monochrome color palette are limited, you can work around this by using color games. You can use one or two colors in one room, but use a mix of dark and light tones of the same color.
For example like the picture above. Although dominantly gray, the owner still uses a combination of dark gray and light gray so that the room does not feel monotonous and boring.
Industrial impression of metal
Since the use of black, gray, and white is synonymous with industrial impression, why not maximize the industrial impression in a minimalist home by using materials such as metal?
You can use materials such as metal and steel on tables and chairs to bring an industrial feel to your home. However, you can also add a touch of elegance through the use of granite or marble, like the picture above which uses a marble table with metal legs.
Adding accessories and accents
To add charm to a monochrome minimalist home, you can take advantage of the use of accents and accessories in the room, such as lamps, candles, or dried flowers as decorations.
You can add pillows on the sofa with various textures and patterns, as long as you keep using monochrome colors such as black, white, or gray. For a slightly different impression, you can use warm white to give a warm impression in the room.
Pattern and color contrast
One way you can do so that your minimalist home doesn’t look boring is to play with color contrasts and use simple patterns and motifs as accents. This also applies to rooms with a monochrome color concept.
