Monochromatic style doesn’t have to be boring

Some may believe lack of color means lack of style.  I saw a great episode of Candice Olson’s Candice Tells All, where she proves them wrong!  On this show, she redesigns a master bedroom using soft, neutral hues.  She eloquently explains that neutral doesn’t have to mean boring- the layering and texture that you add to the design are crucial in making it look polished and interesting.  Candice stayed with warms neutrals, soothing grays and ivory hues, but paired them using different textures and fabrics.  She found several different fabrics and prints to layer as pillows, throws and key furniture pieces.  She used a beautiful statement piece on the wall above the bed.  It was a large, circular feathered piece in an ivory color.  The color itself was so simple, but the texture in the feathers gave such depth to the wall.  
And to give the room more character, she used some wood furniture pieces, (nightstands, accent tables) to give the room a masculine touch.  This room stood out as a restful retreat, not a boring space!  I hope to attach some pictures of the room soon.
