It’s What You Do With It That Counts
Orange can work in any setting, in any intensity, with some careful thought.
Think about the light in your rooms. A soft terracotta shade can look like a glorious Tuscan sunset in one room, or a mud bath in another.
It’s not a colour that we naturally associate with sleep, so think carefully about using it in the bedroom. It can certainly be done very successfully, but stick to more muted, restful tones.
This hotel in Devon uses a dark caramel velvet to add a little luxury, and these layers of soft terracotta give a bright but cosy feel.
