Add some soft and rough. The color scheme here is simple, but the effect is stunning. Look beyond the simple monochromatic palette and you'll see a range of textures at work. Contrast the matte black wall with the rough surface of the white painted bricks, and the soft, inviting bed throw with the rough, natural‐fiber rug. Even the ceiling and artwork are textured. This is an all‐over tactile and visual feast.
Mix in some monochrome. This dark hall dances on the edge of overwhelming, but the monochromatic geometric pattern, white marble and gleaming gold cupboard handles have turned the potentially dark tunnel into an enchanting corridor.
Not a fan of large displays of tchotchkes and objets d'art? You can go a bit wilder with color, because you won't have visual clutter competing with a bold wall. But bright orange is a tough color to pull off, even in a minimalist space. Take a tip from this room and limit the color to one or two smaller walls, and pair it with shades of a neutral – such as sage green.
