“Ssshh! We’ve got a secret, It’s our dark side, and we’re irresistibly drawn to exploring its murky depths and shadows. The colors are moody, the vibe is masculine and the aesthetic is both Victorian and futuristic. Visible mechanicals intrigue us, while theatrical effects, eerie collections and menswear-inspired fabrics like tweed and houndstooth evoke Sherlock Holmes and the Prohibition era of secret doors and speakeasies.”
These colors provide a rich color palette to set the scene in a Sherlock Holmes movie. Mr. Holmes leans tiredly against the stark rare grey building pondering his next tactic. He unbuttons his rustic red and roycroft bottle green patched chamois tweed jacket to reveal the faded mink vest underneath. Puffing on his rockwood dark red pipe, his loyal blue eyes dart back and forth across the plum brown and outerspace evening sky. Suddenly something catches his eye and he takes out his old world gold magnifying glass to take a better look. His mind races, as he runs off into the night.
This same combination of plum brown, rockwood dark red, and old world gold is perfect for a bachelor party or a Cigar & Cognac event. The room is dark. The bleak mink colored walls have splashes of olde world gold
uplighting, which adds to the mysterious, eerie, dark man-cave of a room. All of the chairs have a plum brown cover, adding to the murky shadows. Square rare grey dinner plates sit atop the outerspace chargers. A rockwood dark red cigar sits delicately on the crispy folded chamois napkin. Scattered on the rustic red linens, are a few low cylinders. Rare gray river rocks hide little specks of LED lights. A single rustic red cymbidium orchid floats on top of each cylinder. The room flickers with thousands of little specks of chamois light from scattered small mercury votive candles. Soft cello music is heard as the guests enter to find their seats.
The Midnight Mystery color palatte can also be used for a 1920’s flapper-prohibition-party. A young college girl in a chamois flapper dress sparkles with olde world gold as she shimmers across the dance floor to the pounding saxophone. Her subtle moves are seductive and captivating in the rockwood dark red and plum brown nightclub. Puffing on a long cigarette with her rustic red lipstick, she blows a puff of mink smoke drizzling the outerspace lighting. She catches the eye of a young dapper, with a royal blue bowtie sitting at a roycroft bottle green table. She shimmies towards him as he offers her a rare grey glass.
