Given the temperatures here in the UK are sub-zero this week, and with friends speaking of heavy snowfall in Vancouver and Seattle, I felt we’d all be in the mood for a warming colour cocktail to see us into the weekend. There are darker greys on the cards this week; their gentle tones make a great team when paired with a bold golden hue. If you’re a modernista and like to keep things fresh, ask for your cocktail served with an extra dash of grey as this will serve well to lift the scheme. If, however, you’re more akin to all things traditional, indulge in the glamour and decadence of gold by asking for a triple shot of honey-hued goodness. You can see below how a silver-grey table and accessories dominate the modern space, whilst on the right, golden tones keep things traditional with a hint of grey in the door to add dimension to the room.
