Life without colour is lifeless. Colour impinges every moment and penetrates our dream. Scientists say that an eye of normal human can differentiate between 10 million colours.
Like full spectrum of colours, monochromatic colours are equally effective which provide huge range of contrast shades and tints that can be used to attract attention and create better ambience than multi colour schemes.
Monochromatic colours can be used in different shades (adding dark colours like black or grey) or tints (adding white to main colour) of a specific colour which are derived from single colour. It may be green, yellow, red, orange, mauve or even black. Monochromatic or single colour scheme is new talk of the town.
