Monochrome Décor

Oh how I’ve missed you, New Déjà Vu. Close to two years have gone by since my last post, so rather than fret over wasted time, let’s jump right back in the mix… first up, a glimpse of my new(ish) Brooklyn pad!

I wanted my bedroom to have a dark, moody feel, so I opted for deep gray walls (Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal) with gray furniture and linens. To keep the monochromatic look from falling flat, I added plenty of sparkle with silver trays, lucite and mercury glass lamps, a homemade jewelry display and healthy dose of mirrors.

Elle Decor notes that the monochromatic trend is big for the Spring 2014, saying “While designers are often lauded for their inventive color combinations, sometimes it’s the most simple statements that make the biggest impact.” (Read more: Spring Fashion 2014 at Home: Monochromatic Trend – ELLE DECOR)

What do you think of monochrome? Boring, or chic?
