Inspired by the latest trends, Monier’s new concrete tile colour palette contains a broader and more versatile range of colours than ever before.  The new palette includes 12 new colours[1], allowing greater flexibility when it comes to the colour scheme of a home.

The Monier concrete colour palette has been developed and refined over the years, and the addition of the new colours is the result of being immersed within colour forecasting groups and filtering by colour professionals in the building industry.

Monier worked with colour and design expert, Kathy Demos from Supermaquette, who helped to identify colour trends and assisted with the selection of the final colours in the new palette.  “The end result is a palette that is more sophisticated, subtler and more complementary,” said Kathy Demos.  “Ultimately, we were looking to create something that embodies all the aspiration people desire for their homes and buildings, while providing some of the assurance of yesterday.”

The palette starts at the lighter end of the spectrum with a range of lighter tones in response to a shift to lighter roofs and the desire to manage climate change.  The colour palette then deepens into tawny colours that are almost leather-like and moves to the ever-popular classics of mid-greys and earth tones, right through to black (Sambuca).

Monier has extended its palette into the blue-grey colours with Babylon, Camelot and Atlantis.  Camelot is a dark, smokey blue that adds another surprising dimension to concrete roof tiles and is destined to be a hot new colour based on current trends, with colour experts predicting it to live on well into 2014.

Other greys also remain a popular aspect of the range with colours ranging from brown-greys to green-greys and pure greys.  These grey tones bring a more sophisticated selection to the concrete roof tile, which is also mirrored in current interiors and exteriors colours.

Monier’s contemporary new colour palette has been lightened with the introduction of Vodka, which is joined by other lighter tones of Huon (green), Atlantis (blue), Marlin (grey), Wild Rice (off white) and Chai (brown).

“Not only is there a new and extensive selection of colours for our concrete tiles but, where possible, there is a light, medium and dark shade to make the task of coordinating all the exterior elements of a home just so much easier,” said Carlie Spiteri, Marketing Manager, Monier.  “The combination of a variety of profiles, from contemporary styles to the more traditional, and a selection of 18 colours means there is now, more than ever, a roof tile to complement any home’s design theme.”
