Orange Tips

Warm and Earthy

Decorate with orange by adding subtle elements, details or accents to your design to make the space feel warm.

Fresh and Lively

The best way to apply orange is to use it as the accent color of your reception place (a chimney breast, for instance). Using orange in a predominantly white living space adds liveliness and inspires positive mood.

Modern and Chic

Modern and lively orange accents with grey and black create a happy-chic style.

Cozy and Comfortable

Orange is a good shade to incorporate in an earthy theme, especially if you’re trying to add a Southwestern fare, or a tropical breeze with deep blue nuances.
