Colour of the week – Charcoal

Nothing says ‘style’ quite like the perfect shade of charcoal grey and while the perfect shade may be different for every home, a hint of charcoal here or a splash there will never get you in trouble. 

That’s right – this week’s feature colour is charcoal grey and it’s a colour that is almost the go to neutral for many. Perfect for when black is too..well…black but you’re still wanting something to contrast against those crisp whites. 

Charcoal also brings with it a whole lot of depth and if you’re just using  hints of it – say, in a picture frame or something similar – it’s a brilliant choice for making these finer items appear stronger and bolder. Read on for 5 tips and some inspiring interiors…

Charcoal Kitchen – If your kitchens is blessed with lots of natural light – enjoy it and go bold. A charcoal kitchen is striking and inviting – paired with timber bench-tops, this kitchen is a fine example of a match made in heaven… 

Stained – Make a statement at your entry. This stained timber cladding is the perfect piece to give an entrance wall substance, while keeping it usable for hanging coats by the front door. It’s part art, part function…

Charcoal homes – Perhaps more suited to homes that do not get the afternoon sun, a charcoal exterior is modern, edgy and perfectly framed with bright white trim.

Bedroom Basics – There’s not much in this room that’s not to love – the pendant? Exposed Brick wall? Timber ceiling? Oak floors? Wall sconce? Gorgeous bed setting? Need I go on? It’s all set off by THAT charcoal wall. 

Bathroom beauty – I’ll admit, I’m not one for dark bathrooms in general but a little charcoal goes a long way. One feature wall is enough, it frames the shower and bath area, gives the space some serious depth and is set off beautifully by the timber detail in the shower. TIP: If going dark in the bathroom, use gloss to help bounce around some more light – after all no one likes doing their make-up in the dark!
