Architect Rachael Bennett doesn’t think you should be scared of designing without color. “I find many people think that ‘neutrals’ or ‘black and white’ is either going to be boring (beige on beige on beige, or worse, sterile and cold),” she writes. “But the amount of richness and warmth you can create with just texture, pattern, and materiality, makes for a space just as visually interesting as one with color.” Her home—a 900-square-foot apartment she’s been renting for over six months—may not have a bunch of bright colors, but it does show how you can master the art of layering to create a bold, monochromatic home.
