Metricon’s Lookbook encompasses a curated collection of interior styles, offering inspiration and tips on how our interior themes can be re-created in your own home. Recently unveiled in our Hampshire show home in Essendon VIC, ‘Coco Black' is the latest addition to the Metricon Lookbook collection.

Coco Black is an enigmatic theme that lends itself to the dark side, embracing a moody colour palette that emanates a timeless and sophisticated European style. Dominated by warm, earthy tones, Coco Black is characterised by intricate natural marbles and Italian-influenced designer furniture.



Kitchen


The Coco Black kitchen is distinguished by the dark hues of unsaturated chocolate and mink which add depth and character to impart a luxurious ambience. To re-create the look in your home, introduce warm grey timber cabinetry, a bold, expansive splashback for a timeless finish, and add polished Carrara-inspired floor tiles to give light to a predominantly dark space. Complete the look with sleek, European-inspired kitchen stools with brass and leather detail to achieve a high-end feel that defines contemporary elegance.



Living Spaces


The Coco Black living spaces are saturated in deep muted colours that set the tone for the open-plan living zone. The use of minimalist and contemporary pieces is the key to achieving this look. The Coco Black living spaces move away from light oak timbers and embrace dark black ash or walnut to develop a sense of European contemporary design. Contrast the darker timbers with decorative pieces such as fresh white marble or matte ceramics, glass vases and greenery.


Choose sofas in textured upholstered fabric in dark charcoal tones, and style with cushions and throws in velvet and knitted textures in shades of mink, cognac and forest green tones. Add drama to the space with touches of gold or brass through sculptured pendants, to provide a touch of luxe to a predominantly masculine interior. Finish with boutique-gallery inspired art pieces to create a sense of personality.


Ensuite


A Coco Black bathroom calls for hotel-luxe vibes. Floor to ceiling tiling in rich, brown marble gives a nod to past eras, while the use of brown, Emperador-style marble adds a layer of elegance. Add dramatic aesthetic with geometric towels in burnt sienna or rust tones to give a contemporary approach to a timeless bathroom.



Master Bedroom


The Coco Black master bedroom is designed to make a statement. Introduce moulded timber wall panels to add a sense of classical grandeur, and achieve a high end feel through clean lines and quality Italian designer pieces. Similar to that of the living spaces, dark timbers such as black ash and walnut work seamlessly with the colour palette. Contemporary European style is all about simple form and luxurious design, so ensure you select lights in black and gold for the best result. Complete the room by styling with textures such as faux fur and velvet in caramel and cinnamon tones to give the space a sumptuous atmosphere.
