Monochrome decorating is a way to decorate with one color. Tone on tone refines the idea of decorating with one color. This style makes use of different shades, tones, and textures in more specific ways. Tone on tone is a way to use a specific color in a space and then using slightly different saturations. This creates a refined look which makes tone on color in the bedroom a great choice.
Tone on tone is a design that uses more than one color in order to achieve its desired style. This creates a sophisticated look that is great for those who love a variety of colors.
Different tones are key
To use tone on tone in the bedroom, it is important to first consider the brightness and darkness of different colors. As shown in the above photo, tone on tone is a common way to decorate a bedroom. For example, a darker headboard might be more appropriate for the wall than a lighter one. The headboard will match the wall well, but not blend in completely.
You can have bedding with different colors or tones, such as rugs, drapery, and wall art. All of these elements combine to create a lot of visual interest throughout the room. This allows you to use only one color family in a space without it looking boring or uninspired.
Tones in the bedroom don’t just have to be the same. Texture is another important aspect of this style. Texture allows you to keep the space consistent in color while still retaining a sense of movement. Textured walls, for example, are a great way to add visual interest to a space. As it covers the entire space, the texture is very noticeable. The same effect can be achieved by textured carpeting and rugs.
This look has a great feature: the texture can be as strong or as subtle as you like. In the photo above, the texture on the carpeting and walls is more subtle. This photo also illustrates that tone on tones can lead to a monochrome look if they are not limited to one color. It is possible to have some overlap between monochrome styles and tone on tone.
To separate different shades, you can add punches of other colors
Monochrome doesn’t have to be monochrome. To add visual interest, you can use shots of different colors to visually differentiate tones. A headboard that is very saturated can help to break up the colors between the bedding and the wall.
To visually distinguish the light gray bedding from the dark gray walls, the photo shows a great use of a burgundy headboard. The same idea can be applied to blanket throws or throw pillows. You can also use wall art in a different color to add visual interest and dimension to a single-colored space.
You can try different types of finishes
You can also use different paint finishes to create a tone-on-tone bedroom. This allows you to create a variety of textures in a creative and fun way. The wall shown in the photo above was painted with black high gloss paint and topped with matte black paint. This fun, geometric look is an example of tone-on-tone: combining different textures with one color family to create a variety of styles. You get the illusion of a darker black when you use different paint finishes.
This space also shows how to use multiple shades in the bedroom. The chair and the white linens match perfectly, creating a cohesive feeling.
Visual Anchors to Tone on Tone in the Bedroom
The tone-on-tone style also features visual anchors or focal points, which are things that draw the eye. This element could be the center of the space. The space will not look too flat if it has one focal point that draws the eye.
A visual anchor can be created by incorporating texture into a room’s major fixtures. Bedrooms are a popular place to use bold, geometrically textured curtains. Curtains can be used as focal points because they are a large part of theoom. The headboard and bedding are also popular options.
