Inspired Simplicity

Remuera boutique interior design studio Monochrome Inc is profiled in Malaysia’s online version of The Star. “Would you consider an interior design colour scheme that’s predominantly black and white? It probably would be tedious, wouldn’t it? And, worse, possibly funereal. However, Monochrome Inc, a studio specialising in monochromatic tones, is making waves with their more austere designs. ‘I call my designs the art of inspired simplicity,’ says owner and designer Andrew Loader, 44. ‘My philosophy is deriving maximum impact from the most minimalist yet effective applications.’ Loader spent two decades in the world of luxury hotels and creative design before returning to his native New Zealand in 2009 to open his studio.”
