How to decorate with Orange?
When it comes to decorating, orange colour tends to be very controversial – you either love it or hate it.
In colour psychology orange is the colour of joy and creativity and promotes a sense of general wellness, that’s why it’s particularly popular in offices designs and creative spaces, especially if we refer to bright orange.
Our color of the month – orange ochre – is a soft orange very similar to terracotta, which makes it much easier to be used also in home interiors and many other spaces, by itself or also combined with different colors.

The whole design is monochrome, except from a very bright accent in orange for the kids room. Discover more here
