Colour Cocktail: The Monochrome Magic

This colour cocktail is a timeless classic. A fail-safe combination that magically always works. It sees varying shades of black combine to create striking schemes worthy of the glossiest of shelter publications. This monochrome interior holds an eternal style card; an everlasting trump card, continually outlasting the latest trend or must-have styles. Here we see the scheme at work in a home office space, where jet black hues have been used in matt finishes to maintain a masculine feel - adding in gloss surfaces would soften the look. Meanwhile, graphic pattern is used as this lends itself well to a striking black and white colour palette, which all helps to create the monochrome magic. I'm so excited to see Colour Cocktail return - cheers, friends!


  1. Love this look! I'm leaning towards a little sparkly copper these days, ie: Tom Dixon lights. ;) One day....

  2. The bottom left is my dream office! Perfect.

  3. LOVE this Will! I think you are as obsessed with colour combos as I am. Monochrome with gold accents is my fave at the moment- I want that horse head!
