So you may be thinking why would I choose a colour called ‘Coco’ when you’ve just made the creative decision to transform your dowdy old ‘brown’ furniture? Well, stop there! You’ve heard the saying ‘never judge a book by its cover’ right?

Coco is excellent used as a ‘neutral’ with other colours; reds work particulary well with it due to its pigmentation. It sits bewteen the pinks and reds on the colour wheel. Alternatively it adds warmth & gives colour used independently.

So, give Coco a try when you next have a project in mind – you may be surprised. It can very much be likened to Martini :)
