We’ve all seen our fair share of Scandinavian-inspired spaces, and if there’s one motif that’s entirely undeniable, a monochromatic scheme is it. Here, we’ve gathered an eclectic set of spaces, which prove that modern minimalism and vibrant color palettes do, in fact, exist. See for yourself.

When it comes to the little ones, a colorless palette just won’t do. Within the mod framework of this room, we find a vibrant accent wall coupled with a scattered sort of colorful details that warm up the minimal yet chic space.

A matte black wall paint sets the tone for this rustic-meets modern dining room, where reclaimed wood furnishings lend a layer of depth to the subtly industrialized elements of the space.

Incorporating more than two colors within a space can get tricky, especially when it comes to the kitchen. Yet, this space proves that finding a shade that complements the two – in this case, black – can help achieve a more cohesive look.

Inside this Stockholm hotel, a gray wall paint with smokey green undertones lends a chic backdrop for the modern furnishings of a complementary scheme. Brass fixtures, a light gray rug, and stained wood accent pieces complete the decorative effect of the room.
