How to decorate with orange
Orange adds warmth and energy – just keep it sophisticated. Here’s how to make orange work in your home…
Orange can be overbearing, so keep it chic by using a paler tone on the wall but choosing a neutral for the others and teaming it with a neutral carpet.
Use framed prints to add orange to the walls in small doses.
Go for a mix of bright orange and chocolate-brown accessories.
In a room of strong, contrasting colour, a patterned carpet with a light background breaks up the colour blocks.
Sophisticated dark-wood furniture works best in this scheme.
Choose soft furnishings in orange, picking a bold pattern to bring a stylish touch to the scheme and add detail.
