What is a ton sur ton interior?

Ton sur ton is actually a fancy French term for color on color or hue on hue. So you actually choose one color in different shades and carry it through the entire room. From walls to furniture and curtains to floors. Light and calm colors are often used. Think for example of white, off-white, taupe, beige or pastel shades. This also creates a minimalist and calm look. Of course, you can work with whatever color you like, as long as you make it come back in different shades.

How do you create a ton sur ton interior?

Finding it hard to get started? Paint the walls of your space in the chosen color. For more unity, you can choose to paint your ceiling with it. Then start decorating, choosing furniture in the same color as your walls, only a shade lighter or darker. And that difference can be quite large from time to time, otherwise it can all become quite flat. When choosing accessories, do the same thing. Work with different materials, these provide extra depth. Fortunately, at DETJER we have a wide range of furniture that fits perfectly with this ton sur ton trend.

Take your time and do not rush. You can find the most surprising accessories while traveling, at a vintage design market or at your grandmother's house. Enjoy and enjoy your ton sur ton living room!
