Never make this mistake again! We often find clients saying:”I want a monochromatic colour scheme”. What they mean, is actually a colour scheme with shades of grey. That is actually called “Achromatic.” A monochromatic scheme is a colour scheme with one colour, in many tones. However, this can be ANY colour. Green, yellow, blue or red. A monochromatic colour scheme therefore is not very popular, as most people don’t want only one colour in a room.
Here are a few examples of a monochromatic colour scheme in blue and pink. See how that is the only colour used in each room, but in different tones to make it interesting. This scheme is most popular in blue.
So next time your friends talk about monochromatic or grey colour schemes, pull out the word “achromatic” and impress them all!
Until next time,
