If you love the idea of colour, but don’t want anything too bold in your life, then you should consider our new favourite neutral, Cocoa. This warm toned neutral will offer a subtle introduction of colour that still feels fresh and neutral.
With the cooler weather, warm, cosy colours have certainly been calling our name. Creamy lattes, muted browns and deep chestnuts are all on our list. So it’s not wonder this equally saturated and soothing tone is emerging as another popular earth tone. Just looking at this colour helps warm your bones and provides a little respite from the world right now.
How is it different from brown you may well ask?! Great question! It’s lighter than brown (but not in a milky kind of way) and has a reddish pink undertone, which gives it its warm edge and differentiates it from the chestnut notes of the browns you’ve come to know.
Like many good neutrals, Cocoa creates balance in a room, especially when used alongside a formerly white setting. It also has a stable, non-flashy vibe that can work well in many rooms, making it surprisingly versatile.
Make a strong statement using this colour on the walls and then add soft touches of complimentary browns (such as leather and wood), adding a dash of metal for a little glamour.
