Color + Color = Neutral?


 I love to layer color and to incorporate many tones and shades of the same hue in one space.  Somehow, lots and lots of the same color can almost feel like a neutral. It certainly is not logical, but sometimes great design just is not!  Instead of using color as a pop, here are some examples of bold interiors that went all the way. 

Do you think this crazy equation works? 





So rich and vibrant! Not sure I could live in these spaces but they are wonderful to admire. I adore that purple, plum and lavender sitting room!

This was a really interesting post. I'm still pondering whether I like this look or not. You're right, though, going all the way monochromatic does have a neutralizing effect. Definitely something to keep in mind. I'm more of a pop of color kind of girl though.

Yes, it sure can, but not in the wrong hands though. The top image is wonderful - richly textured and layered, a room of simpering sultry mood. Marvelous.
