Home Tones: Black Coffee

This week’s Home Tones brings you all things black coffee coloured. It’s the shade of brown associated with wenge, a beautiful tropical hardwood.

It’s a very practical and forgiving colour for use on walls and floors; hiding all manner of scuffs, marks… and scribbles! Perfect for those with kids or big, active dogs like ours (or rather, big muddy dogs most of the time recently!).

It has real warmth and atmosphere, working perfectly with other natural shades – and contrasting well with creamy whites and greens. Pair it with highlight metallics such as gold, brass and copper on lamps, taps, light switches and sockets.

    Love this shade! It’s very comforting and looks very clean, but homey at the same time. Going to consider colour in future 🙂
