Our colour of the month is black, a colour that absorbs all light. It partners with white to create a dramatic monochrome effect. This classic interior style has been particularly prevalent in kitchens and bathrooms and provides the perfect backdrop for flashes of bright, contrasting colours. The monochrome look creates a striking impact which can change the feeling of light and space in your home.
Black encompasses many tones including brown black, deep midnight blue black and grey charcoal black. In the image above, Little Greene Lamp Black (228), a soft off-black colour, has been used to create a sleek back drop and contemporary interior.

In the paint palettes below, Little Greene have used Lamp Black (228) in Image 1 with toning and contrasting shades to showcase it. In Image 2, Little Green have used Jack Black (119) which is an absolute black and suggested colours to complement it. Black is extremely versatile as a colour and will go with almost any colour scheme selected.
Sanderson offers a dramatic off-black tone called Carbon. This is a powerful shade with mineral undertones (Image 1). A more subtle, saturated shade of black is the Burn Black Light. This has deep charcoal pigments (Image 2).
