Orange the bright and happy decorating colour!

The energetic – attention grabbing colour Orange.

The image below is the beautiful Casamance Edinburgh II “Arthurs Seat” signature wool fabric showing how wonderful bold colours look so brilliant together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange is the colour of loving life and vitality and sparks enthusiastic response and energetic moods within. Orange suggests happy, uplifting and warm feelings within like warm, sunny days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The colour Orange used in small amounts is a great way to introduce strong hues into your home by brightening up a dull colour scheme. Because it is such a wonderful accent colour you can simply throw around some orange cushions and flowers to a vase to enliven the room. Orange is full of surprises, be bold and play around with it! You will see in my images that orange allows you to present other bold colours and still retain a high contrast scheme.

 

Re-style Your Wall & Accessory Colours to “Living Coral”

Here I am again peeps, banging on about the amazing Pantone colour “Living Coral” I personally feel that it is a tremendously warm and inviting vibe to add to your decor. Paint some walls in your living room and as the image below shows- stunning!

If you paint a wall in this stunning colour, accessorise with complimentary coloured items that don’t overpower the room such as gold. Of course depending on your furniture two beautiful accent colours that work wonderfully well with “Living Coral” are Pantone “Desert Sage” and Pantone “Twill” see samples below. Or if you would rather paint your wall say for instance Twill then use “Living Coral” or “Desert Sage as your accents.

I have added a few items below that will work wonderfully well with these combinations of colour. Notice the gorgeous vase of coral tone flowers which adds an instant pop of colour! Rather than having a painted wall, instead use the sensual Baker Lifestyle Ishana Festival wallpaper, this will add another visual layer to your room. Stunning!
