Monochromatic colours schemes aren’t common in average home designs, but each time we seen one that has been done particularly well, we wish they’d trend even harder. Establishing a monochromatic decor design throughout an entire home is best done by varying certain pieces every so slightly by shade or tone but keeping things within the same colour family. Nagatinskaya, a residential project located in Moscow, Russia, is a shining example of how to do that perfectly.
Nagatinskaya is a residential project that was designed by buro5 in 2016. Its interior aesthetic crosses somewhere between industrial chic thanks to the inclusion of stainless steel appliances and accents, and minimalist casual thanks to furnishings that still appear very contemporary but are comprised of textures and materials that soften the feel of the rooms.
Perhaps the most noticeable thing about this home, though, is the fully grey decor. The designers chose a soft, deep grey that alters between middle to dark shades all over the house, from ceiling to floor and everything in between. Because of the subtle changes in shade in very careful places, the scheme looks far from drab the way you might assume too much grey in one place would look. Instead, it’s warm and calming. To provide at least a little bit of contrast, however, designers did include a popping feature detail in the master bedroom. This is the only room in the house with an accent wall in russet brick grid, making the entire room look rather modern and grand all at once!
