Paint Library monochrome colour card
Paint Library Monochrome presents six nuanced pairs of black and white shades, tonally formulated to be used together in a 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 effectively 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.

Understanding how colours ‘behave’ is one of the most difficult aspects of decoration to get right.
It has a lot do with ambient light which is seldom constant. Ambient light causes colours to appear to change at different times of the day. Overcoming this variable is made easier with the use of ‘Architectural Colours’. The consistent pigmentation in each set works in both artificial and natural lighting.
Before commencing any interior decoration project consider the amount and direction of light. This may be natural or artificial. Take into account the architecture, purpose and size of the room.
Not all of us are experienced or have an interior designer on hand to help us choose colours. Before committing to a colour, plan where to make a definite statement. Consider where to create sufficient emphasis to catch the light and eye. Use your natural intuition and pick colours that look right for you.
