Keep it Neutral

Neutral colours, whatever the fashion, always retain an edge of sophistication and peaceful glamour. Considering how light acts as part of your neutral scheme is important. A plain and simple neutral colour scheme can feel bleak if subject to harsh light. Adding in a transulcent blind with a woven or printed pattern will filter the light’s intensity and add a glow to the space.

The new Reflection Collection of roller blinds from Luxaflex features rich, timeless textures and two-tone patterns. The gorgeous fabrics teamed with a colour palette from beautiful natural looks to chalky whites have a luxurious soft glow that adds instant sophistication and warmth to your home.

Rococo Chocolate and Jigsaw Dressing Up Christmas Bars


In a collaboration with Jigsaw, the contemporary British fashion brand started in 1972, Rococo Chocolates, founded by Chantal Coady OBE in 1983, has developed three special, festive flavours for Christmas 2017. They are absolutely perfect for giving as a gift or enjoying with family and friends during the festive season. This is a limited edition.  Don’t miss-out – when they are gone… they are gone!

Jigsaw approached Rococo because they loved Chantal’s designs and a number of her designs have been used on accessories for their Christmas 2017 collection. Do look out for them. Some will also be available on the Rococo website.


Zest, Spice and Cinnamon Eve:

Tones of Cinnamon and nutmeg punctuated by pops of orange. This is what Christmas tastes like. A milk chocolate bar with a minimum 40% cocoa solids.

Cardamom & Crackle:

A crisp combination of crackling rice and cardamom in a smooth white chocolate. Like freshly fallen snow in a bar. White chocolate contains minimum 30% cocoa solids.

Boxing Day Beets:

Sweet beetroot enveloped in a coat of dark chocolate. An antioxidant – there is no guilt in this pleasure.  Dark chocolate contains a minimum of 65% cocoa solids.


The bars are available in 70g bars retailing at £5.00 or in mini bee bars retailing at £1.60.  Available at all Rococo shops and online from 16 October as well as in selected Jigsaw shops.





The Academy of Chocolate Awards was held at Claridge’s Hotel for the 2017 event. This prestigious, and increasingly internationally recognised event, saw 900 entries this year, showing that the UK chocolate scene is growing in reputation and creativity.

Chantal Coady OBE. Founder of Rococo Chocolates was joined by Head Chocolatier Karen and the entire Rococo Kitchen team of Jordan, Mireille, Paul, Nick and Veronica, to collect all of the Awards, including two of the very few Golds awarded this year: for Citrus Rooibos and Yuzu & Sake, both ganaches from Rococo’s Couture range of Fresh chocolates, as well as a gold for Orange Blossom Neroli Bee Bar.

The surprise of the evening, came when Rococo were also awarded the inaugural Golden Bonbon Award, for the highest scoring chocolate of the year!

That was awarded for Citrus Rooibos – a dark chocolate dome, filled with a layer of sharp, blood orange jelly and a Valrhona ganache infused with rooibos tea. Both of the Gold winning ganaches were created for Rococo’s ‘Round the World’ seasonal range last year, when the chocolatiers worked to discover and share new flavours and ingredients from around the globe. Citrus Rooibos represented South Africa, and the mouth-tingling acidity of the Yuzu & Sake was for Japan.

The Orange Blossom Neroli bee bar, which won Gold in its category of flavoured milk bars, is a 50% dark milk, infused with organic Neroli essential oil for the evocative and delicate flavour of orange blossoms.

As well as the gold, Rococo also won four Silvers for Lychee & Thai Lime, Liquorice & Rhubarb, Sticky Toffee Pudding and our Macadamia Gianduja. Plus three Bronzes for the Cashew & Cocoa Nib Cluster, Popcorn Ganache, and panned Caramelised Macadamias & Hazelnuts.

All three Gold Award winning chocolates are available in all Rococo shops from Saturday.

Notes to editors

Chantal Coady, OBE:

In 1983, a young woman dared to follow her dreams, to share with others her love for real chocolate.  Following on from a Saturday job in Harrods selling chocolate, Chantal knew she wanted to create her own magical emporium of luxury chocolate. She envisaged Rococo to be a chocolate paradise, so armed with a little knowledge, a dangerous passion and the belief that there was room for a radically different approach to chocolate, Chantal opened the doors of the first Rococo Chocolates shop on the Kings Road in Chelsea. Rococo is known for Ethical Luxury, Chantal has invested in a cocoa farm in Grenada where they work with the local farmers and the Grenada Chocolate Company to add value to this most important crop.

More than three decades and five shops later Chantal is still pioneering the movement for real chocolate.  In 2014 Chantal Coady was awarded an O.B.E. in the Queen’s Birthday Honours ‘For Services to Chocolate’ recognising her long and ground-breaking career.


Rococo is proud to have been recognised by the Academy of Chocolate, International Chocolate Awards and Great Taste for our chocolates.  Rococo won 9 medals at the Academy of Chocolate awards in April 2017

Gold: Yuzu and Sake, Rooibos
Silver:  Lychee & Thai Lime, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Macadamia Gianduja, Liquorice & Rhubarb
