A monochromatic room doesn’t necessarily have to include one and the same shade repeated all over. In fact, investigating different shades of one colour is more inspiring than you think. You can, for instance, pick one colour, let’s say blue or gray, and then use it in all kinds of different options. Start with soft blue and decide which part of the room would be most suitable to apply it to. Then, use royal blue to create accent with some pieces of décor and, for the finish, pick midnight blue for areas you want to keep dark, hidden, yet visible enough. Shade by shade, you’ll create an inspiring space many would envy you for. Contrasting colours are used in order to weigh the importance of things you possess and the home décor is something you’ll always be able to change and reorganize when you feel the need for that arises

Monochromatic White Office

All-white offices are sophisticated, classy and welcoming. Picking this look for your monochromatic home office has its benefits. Firstly, all-white offices give a sense of cleanliness, serenity and motivation. Secondly, you need to have good organizational skills and an eye for detail if you want to keep your white office spotless and in top-notch shape.

An all-white office is anything but sterile and cold. It can truly be a cozy place full of warmth and inspiration if you furnish it with proper furniture and decorate smartly. Don’t cluster it too much and use décor of various shapes, sizes, and materials (like photo frames, rugs cushions) in order to create a cozy nook you’ll enjoy.

Black and white is not everybody’s cup of tea. If you want to create warmer and cozier atmosphere in your small home office, opt for one colour and stay within its hue. The walls should a lighter shade, while the focal point in the room could be the desk of a darker shade, and perhaps small sofa, armchair or cabinet. Curtains are always an excellent option to warm up a space, as well as smaller rugs, cushions or even flowers of the same shade.

Define the Style of Your Home Workspace

Working in a home office means you need to create an environment that will be distraction-free, peaceful and a bit isolated from the rest of the house, however small it is. Always opt for minimalistic approach when it comes to furniture arrangement, as you need to maximize space for yourself and your potential colleagues and clients. Before you pick the furniture, define the style and pattern that will best suit your needs. Have one or two eye-catching details, like a rug, a lamp or even a desk with a few pieces of décor. You can always check the option of buying light and adjustable desks, if you need to rearrange your office from time to time, depending on the work load and your needs.
