Tone on tone decorating is a classic style that anyone can do.
The subtle shifts in color create a clean, sophisticated look no matter which color you choose. This year we will be seeing more of this style of decorating for the home.
If you’re interested in this aesthetic and want to see some gorgeous examples of tone on tone decorating, keep reading.
Why Use Tone on Tone
Using a simplified color palette allows you to create a cohesive look to your space effortlessly. With bright contrasting colors, your attention is less likely to be diverted to a particular area of the room.
Instead, you will be able to better experience the space as a whole. The eye is more likely to stop and examine the little details when there are only slight variations in tone.
This means, all those little extras you’ve put into your space will be appreciated. Using this approach to decorating a space almost creates a bit of a game for the eye.
Best Rooms for Tone on Tone Decorating
Although any room can be done in this style, it is well suited for spaces from which you want calm. Relaxing, quiet spaces such as your bedroom, reading nook, or library are great options.
Because this design style is more of a whisper than a shout, you will appreciate it most in spaces that are meant to restore and relax you.
