Orange is the flames of a winter fire, the blazing summer sun, the new nectar of spring and an autumn pumpkin harvest, making it a vibrant all year round choice for decor accents. This strong colourway is actually very versatile and can be manipulated to bring a warming bloom into all kinds of interior spaces. In its bright form it is fun & playful and suited to filling sociable living spaces with a cheerful upbeat mood. Darker variations work in sophisticated spaces with rich undertones and natural wooden elements. These three home interiors work their way through the whole juicy spectrum, putting versatile orange zest to the test.

Tonal orange infusions of pumpkin, rust and paprika bring variation to the white open plan living space of our first interior. A set of round nesting coffee tables combine rust and white gloss finishes in the centre of the lounge, whilst sofa scatter cushions combine emerald, pumpkin and grey.
Natural wood builds sophisticated moments, like this sleek wood slatted statement wall with a floating tv stand. Two glass vases dress the unit’s cool grey granite top.
The room is encased in clean white wall panelling, which cools the scheme’s brighter accents. A large wall clock adds an area of interest to the smooth surround.
A light wood island and matching soffit add subtle texture to the pale kitchen.
Paprika coloured kitchen bar stools add heat and energy to the neutral design.
A contemporary wood slatted ceiling caps the dining area.
Delicious chocolate orange accents sweeten a grey bedroom scheme. A single bright orange cushion pops against a grey bed set and chocolate brown platform bed. Bedroom pendant lights are tipped with gold to add a little lustre.
A charcoal rug grounds the look.
