MONOTONE MONDAY

I am happy to finally be back after a somewhat unexpected week long hiatus. 
M and I were so excited to host family in town last week and spent many hours on an overhaul of our apartment - it turned out so great but left me thinking about our bedroom. It has long been my favorite room in our apartment - maybe its the slightly monotone feel against the rest of the bright and bold apartment. As much as I like to change things up once in a while - my bedroom really never gets old... it got me thinking about these other well executed and sumptuous monotone bedrooms...

What are your thoughts? Lots of color and different patterns and texture? Or do these soothing tones speak to you?

Much love,

Those rooms are gorgeous. I think that you need a very large room to do a lot of colour in a bedroom otherwise it looks way too busy. I love these colours, and can totally see them lulling me to sleep.

I like both which doesn't bode well for my bedroom design at the moment! One day it's all neutral, the next I want five different patterns. Love these photos though!

Love this cool - so cool and sophisticated. Great use of mirrors to enhance the spaces - particularly love the huge one over the bed, although I would fix it so that it lies flat against the wall. A bit like this one:

I love mirrors as decor! So pretty! Found your lovely site after seeing your save-the-date cards on the Love and Lavender blog...they are beautiful and what a cute couple you both make! So exciting!!! Congratulations and all the best with your planning...I'm busy planning mine for next year and loving it! :)
