Without the distraction of color, texture and pattern have a chance to shine. Get the most from a monochrome studio by adding bags of different visual and physical texture–coarse surfaces, touchy-feely fabrics, shiny or reflective accents. Create interest with pattern—bold graphic statements or smaller, more intricate design work equally well. Add the odd natural element to soften the look.

A little black goes a long way. For a light, bright workspace, keep the walls and floors white and add drama with dark statement pieces.
