The key to a monochromatic color scheme is using different textures and introducing other interesting items to create interest and keep the eye moving.  Take a look at this space above.  Notice everything is a version of beige, but you’d never say it was boring.  The woven woods, the addition of wood, rattan and other textures in the space hold your interest and please the eye – creating warmth and welcoming you in.
