Paint & Paper Library launches ‘Monochrome’, an elegant collection of nuanced black and white tones.
Paint Library’s sophisticated new collection, ‘Monochrome’, presents six nuanced pairs of black and white shades, tonally formulated to be used together in chic, subtly harmonious relationships.
Each white tone has been carefully selected for its versatility: all six whites can be used as striking, independent, all-over shades, but appear equally effective as beautiful, plain whites within a scheme of tonal similarity.
Each black tone has been judiciously designed to be used with its monochromatic partner, in lesser or greater proportion, to dramatically change the interplay of light and space in a room, while at the same time effortlessly coordinating with existing materials and surfaces in the interior scheme.
Each white and black pair adopts the hue of the Paint & Paper Library ‘Original’ colour shown alongside it, thus presenting six options of varying undertone, including ochre, pink, warm grey, cool grey, blue and green.
Marketing Director, Ruth Mottershead, explains the thinking behind the new collection. “Many of the world’s most elegant interiors, old and new, have used black & white colour schemes to achieve maximal impact with minimum effort. In truth, it’s a disarmingly simple principle, and the considered, subtle combinations in the ‘Monochrome’ colourcard avoid any unpleasant, harsh contrasts of pure jet black and bright, brilliant white.”
