Dreaming in Color: 10 Sexy Monochrome Bedrooms

October 26, 2021

Do you dream of a colorful bedroom? Thanks to architect Jess Thomas we do. Her Brooklyn townhouse is filled with a lot of good ideas—see our post, the Sentimental Minimalist—but it was her pale pink-on-pink guest room that really piqued our interest. As her place demonstrates, a monochromatic bedroom telegraphs an inviting completeness and calmness. The trick to achieving the look? Use serene colors and avoid monotony by introducing a range of hues and textures: the goal is a tone-on-tone, single-color space that’s both nuanced and restful.
