A contemporary color trend that’s on the rise is the use of monochromatic design in the office. Monochromatic designs create a clean, cohesive look that’s elegant yet approachable, polished yet casual. This design trend is especially effective in smaller spaces, where using too many colors at once can make a room feel small and discordant. A calming monochromatic space can be an antidote to stress.
Monochromatic design is the practice of designing a space (or a website or artwork) using variations of a single color or hue. It’s the process of composing a design using one main color as your unifying theme and layering the space with a variety of color values — lighter and darker shades — based on the central theme.
Put another way, to design in monochrome is to create a harmonious theme based on a single-color scheme. The concept comes from the Greek mono (meaning alone, single, one) and chroma (meaning color).
