Monochrome paint range opens up tonal harmony

Twelve gradations of black and white with subtle undertones offer architects and designers maximum-impact, minimum-effort colour combinations for interiors projects

In association with
The Monochrome paint collection from The Paint & Paper Library: 12 shades for balanced and sophisticated decorating schemes.

Paint & Paper Library’s Monochrome paint collection 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 can also be equally effective as beautiful, plain whites within a scheme of tonal similarity.

Kohl and Minim paint shades from the Monochrome collection carry the warmth of Opus from the Originals collection, all Paint & Paper Library.

Each black tone has been 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 co-ordinating with existing materials and surfaces in the interior scheme.

Flat Light and Beyond Blue paint shades from the Monochrome collection are based on Blue Vein from the Originals collection, all Paint & Paper Library.

The black tones can also be used on both walls and woodwork to create a strong, clean, contemporary look - this generates a sense of calm in a room, as well as exaggerating its size, since there are no contrasts to draw the eye, allowing other elements to become the focus. It forms an easy-to-update background for furniture, fabrics, painting and objects.

Each white and black pair adopts the hue of the Paint & Paper Library Original colour shown alongside it (see the colour card, top), presenting six options of varying undertone, including ochre, pink, warm grey, cool grey, blue and green.

Charbone paint shade from the Monochrome collection originates in the ochre tones of Thames Mud from the Originals collection, both Paint & Paper Library.

'Many of the world’s most elegant interiors, old and new, have used black and white colour schemes to achieve maximal impact with minimum effort,' says Paint & Paper Library creative director Ruth Mottershead. 'The subtle combinations in the Monochrome colour card avoid any unpleasant, harsh contrasts of pure jet black and bright, brilliant white.'
