This post's for you, Mr. So-Over-the-Color-Coded-Bookshelf-Trend-Man. Yes, you may have jumped off the book grouping bandwagon, but it's hard to deny the visual merit of clustering other objects with like colors. It's the fail-safe recipe for a high impact display regardless of the individual object...

• 1., 2., 3 Monocrhome displays are not limited to uniform objects. In these examples, larger wall displays— the vintage map, the peeling green window frame, the painted yellow square— anchor and unify the disparate forms of the smaller color grouped objects below.
• 4., 5., 6 Pottery makes one of the most stunning monochromatic displays. To emphasize the unique variations of the like colored pottery, display it in front of a contrasting backdrop of color.
•7. Pottery and ceramic don't have to stand alone, grouping them with other interesting objects of a similar color creates an equally pleasing display. We love how the architectural salvage, coral, and stone look perfectly at home with their smooth ceramic counterparts in this warm monochromatic cluster.

What monochromatic groupings do you have in your home?
