A pop of Orange

About 18 months ago I blogged that Orange would become big in interiors, judging from the catwalk, and it was prevalent at the AW13 Interior exhibition at Paris.  The Maison Objet exhibitors used it as both a base colour and to accent any room with a pop of orange…  so… voila… some photos straight from the show at Paris and a few others to give you ideas to create a bit of warmth in your room.


Faux Crocodile wallpaper (available at our showroom) with black and charcoal colours to neutralise the base and gives definition to the room.


Bar side table, available at our showroom.


Manuel Canovas Toile de Jouy, available in wallpaper and fabric from our showroom.


A pop of orange gives this look warmth and glamour.

The white room can have hot colours added for winter warmth, wallpaper and fabric available at our showroom.


The Oriental Room at Blakes Hotel, designed in the late 70s, using orange and black, fabulous.


Just remember, to get it right, the shade of orange has to be Hermes Orange only.


Cushion, available at the showroom, to use orange as an accessory in any room.

Autumn Inspiration


I came across some beautiful images, in our library, with autumnal colour tones to get us in the mood, thought I would share them with you.


Pablo Paniagua designs featured in Nuevo Estilo, wonderful scale, colour and a great idea to drape an old console with fabulous fabric.





Autumn or is it the Fall, depending what side of the pond you’re from.
