Monochrome Nursery

Monochrome Nursery

A monochrome nursery is always a winner and currently one of the most popular schemes for nurseries and even toddler rooms.  It has become the go to scheme for gender neutral nursery themes for parents, and it is a great way of incorporating high contrast stimulation for promoting that teeny baby’s visual development. LittleME dangles are perfect for this.

How do you create a monochrome nursery or monochromatic room scheme?

Firstly you need to understand what monochrome schemes are all about.


Monochromatic colours are all the colours (tones, tints and shades ) of a single hue.

Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, grey or black. – Wikipedia

Neutrals make the best monochromatic schemes BUT you are not limited to black, white and grey.

Bellow is an example of a monochromatic room setting using colour:

Texture and pattern will ensure that an monochromatic interior does not look bland and become monotonous. Depending on your degree of harmony that you wish to see in the room you will use more or less pattern or print in the room but textures can be layered to create coziness  and add elegance to any room.

Monochrome colour schemes can help small spaces feel bigger, another great reason for using it in a nursery.

Bellow see some monochrome nursery inspiration from the latest LittleME decor product shoot. We opted for a less layer look to get a clean and crisp look.
