Monochrome by Paula Rice Jackson.

Monochrome by Paula Rice Jackson.

Colour is integral to the practice of interior design. Monochrome includes a set of projects that have all been designed around the use of one colour. The results are refined and elegant. When colour is taken out of the equation, a rich exploration of texture, shape and materials emerges. Slight variations within the one colour create a subtle sculptural effect. Neutral shades such as greys, taupes and beiges, as well as crisp, contemporary whites are featured in the myriad projects by international interior designers.
