What's the story?

“I got the inspiration for the shade CUP CAKE in England, when I was looking in a kitchen cabinet full of cupcakes. It was the brownish shade of the cupcake dough that I wanted to add to the collection. It reminded me of chocolate, then again, it was not as dark as chocolate is. Therefore, one could describe this shade as chocolate-dough-coloured.“

Styling tip:

CUP CAKE is a light, chocolate shade that benefits from cooler shades as a contrast. ICED SURPRISE complements CUP CAKE very well and in larger areas, it combines perfectly with CONTZEN WHITE to create a bright and inviting space.

Lars Contzen about colours:

“The beauty of a colour does not depend on a particular object. Every colour may tell a thousand stories. Use colours the way you like them best. There are colour combinations, though, that harmonize perfectly.”
