Break up monotony: How to add art to your colourful walls in 2020
After many years of supremacy, the pale-colored home decor is not the single option for interior design anymore. Finally some designers and architects are bringing brightness, liveliness and personality to their works, adding powerful colours to walls, furniture and even carpets.
One of the biggest home decor trends for this year is the bold monochromatics. "Colours like Cobalt Blue, Kelly Green, or even Aubergine can evoke monochromatic in a daring way, that’s full of personality and elegance", says Jonathan Rachman to the Elle Decor Magazine (if you are interested here you can find out more about the 2020 design trends).
Monochromatic is made up of one color or various shades of that color. It doesn’t have to look monotonous at all, as you can see in the photos below. If you like a color, be bold and use it for an extensive area of covering. The result might just blow your mind.
To make an elegant contrast, you just need to add some details, like a poster on the wall or a nice decor piece in another color. Take a look at the stunning red living room above.
The Mount Fuji Red by Hokusai poster adds a powerful and interesting statement to the decoration.
Our Cedres Tree Botanical poster made the difference as well in this beautiful home office.
But if you are a beginner when it comes to vibrant colors and you don't feel prepared to go straight to the bold monochromatic, you can also start mixing two or more colours in a room, like in this remarkable living room where yellow and blue are the protagonists, adorned by our Aurora Borealis poster.
And why not mixing two strong colours, such as purple and yellow? If this combination sounds strange to you, take a look at this charming decor.
Our Oranges et Citrons poster adds a classic touch on the wall, making an interesting contrast with the modern style of the furniture.
Mixing colours can be also a good way to point your guests' attention to your most interesting decor piece, like the Sea Anemone poster, a reproduction from a German Encyclopedia Meyers Lexikon from the early 20th century. Hung on this plum wall surrounded by yellow tones, it makes it hard to look in another direction.
