Orange is the colour of Autumn, Halloween and bonfires. It brings a glowing warmth to a room and can add a certain depth to your colour scheme. It is often viewed as an optimistic colour, evoking feelings of sociability, fun and joy.
The many warm shades of orange include coral, burnt orange and selected shades of terracotta. The ease of living with the warmth of the more earthy orange terracotta tones can be seen in homes around the world, with the popularity of terracotta tiling and washed walls. The richness and depth of these colours also makes them one of the most homely and welcoming colour groups in the colour spectrum.

Their range includes 154 colours in a selection of finishes to co-ordinate throughout our homes.

You can choose your fabric from a range of design houses. These include Sanderson, Morris & Co, Anthology, Scion, Harlequin, Clarke & Clarke and Prestigious Textiles, amongst many others.
For a striking window dressing, choose floor length curtains with a traditional heading in a bold floral design such as Very Rose & Peony Velvet fabric in Kingfisher/Rowan Berry from the Sanderson One Sixty Collection (See image opposite). This would add an air of opulance, luxury and vibrant colour to your room design.
