If you thought using multi-coloured combinations to paint walls was the only way to change the entire look of your home then you are wrong. With the help of monochromatic colour scheme you can make your home walls stand out and turn them into a magnum opus. Monochromatic colour schemes make use of a single colour in different hues. These are mostly achieved by adding colours like white, black or gray; in terms of wall painting, textures and wall finishes are also used to enhance the effect.

Not just the walls these colours can be a part of your interiors as well and become an essential element of your entire home decoration.

The Walls: For the walls you can play around with a dark and light shade of the same colour. For instance if you wish to paint your drawing room with the colour red, you certainly would not want your hall to look flashing by making using of a wine red paint. What you can do is paint a single wall with wine red paint in gloss finish and balance the other walls by a lighter version of the same colour using a matte finish.

The furniture: You can continue your wall colour combinations in your furniture pieces too. The placement will require some smart work. You can place dark coloured furniture near the walls that are painted in light hues and vice versa.

The paintings: Wall paintings have become an integral part of home decoration. Monochromatic paintings are a rage and finding one that suits your walls can be an exciting task. You can choose from human figures, natural landscapes, symmetrical designs; the choices are endless. If you have a painting that you can't do without in your home then dedicate a complete wall to it and paint it in sync with the painting in monochromatic hue.

When choosing wall paints it isn't always necessary to get the maximum number of bold colours and splash them onto your walls and then wonder why you did so. Monochromatic colour combinations simplify such confusions and make a statement in themselves. Whether you are awestruck by bright neon colours or subtle light shades are your pick, there is room to accommodate every choice of yours.
