The jury’s still out on whether too much of a good thing is actually, well, a good thing. But when it comes to monochrome color in a room, we’re all for the commitment—it’s impressive! Tell me this red tufted wall and ornate chandelier don’t speak to you.

Chances are, if you favor a minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic, you have an all-white space in your home. There’s no denying it’s chic—unless you’re prone to spills and messes.

The color orange isn’t for everyone, but if you DO love it, this is a prime example of how to fill your living space with the burnt hue. The ceiling color really serves as an anchor for the room, further proving you can use this underutilized part of your space to make a real statement.

If you love all shades of a single color, you can find a way to incorporate all of them into one room. We love how the bright wall color contrasts with the grayish, pale blue wood—and the turquoise sofa, too!

So this green bathroom isn’t really translatable to your own home… But it’s SO cool! Apparently, every room in this L.A. home was spray painted a different color (before being gut renovated).

People get scared of incorporating too much black (or other dark colors) into their homes for fear of making the space look smaller. But how chic does this kitchen look?

Decorating a room with a single color doesn’t have to mean splurging on a ton of decor. Choosing the right shade of paint can make all a real impact.

This eclectic and ornate style of decorating appeals to a specific aesthetic, but even if this style doesn’t speak to you, you can’t deny this would be a fun room to hang out in. The star table and printed rug are our favorite accents!

Though you’re probably not going to douse your entire living room in a coat of yellow paint, don’t let that stop you from adding pops of the cheery hue to different spaces throughout your home.

Everything about this living room is impeccably designed. From the mint accessories and tufted sofa to the ghost frames painted the same color as the wall and stained floors, we’re in love.
