Happy Home: We've got an orange crush + paint colour tips

By House and Home in Decorating, Trends on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - 09:00
a bright orange ethnic room

Orange, like reds, have a warming effect on a space but beware - they tend to speak at a higher volume. Orange over-dose can leave those in its aura gasping rather than basking, so take care to splash sherbet hues on feature walls that won’t necessarily face you all day, or use to perk things up in poorly-lit hallways or corners.

TRY: Pumpkin King from the Crown Paints Colourmix Collection, and accessorise with a brilliant white trim and ethnic cushions to tone things down a little.
