Trend Watch: Burnt Orange

Trend Watch

A new trend for autumn is burnt orange.  This is set to become a key autumnal shade and is a lovely colour for adding warmth to your home.  It’s important to realise that is has more brown than yellow tones which means you should go for darker rather than lighter complementary shades.

If you start with a burnt orange accent wall you can create a chic or a cosy mood.  If you’re going for contemporary chic, white walls and wooden floors work well.  Try white curtains, brown sofas and then splash your orange around on cushions, throws and with a rug like this one.

Going for cosy?  Use natural textiles and wooden furniture.  A log burner, a large chandelier and window treatments in burgundy or chocolate shades will create the mood you want.   This rug will look great in front of the log burner.

For more of a cool, Scandinavian vibe, another colour that works really well with burnt orange is pale blue.  This is a grown up look which has  quite a minimalistic feel.

How are you using orange?  We’d love to know.

Interior design trends

A new survey by George Home reveals that 95% of people are happy to experiment with bold colours in the home and the age of magnolia and off-white are long gone.  Its three best selling colours are grey, green and blue and so we’ve had a look at some rugs that we think would complement these best sellers.

Going grey? It just so happens that part of our new collection, Yeti by Brink & Campman, features this modern and versatile colour.   Made in Nepal by some of the world’s most skilful master rug weavers Yeti offers meticulous attention to detail and quality. Each rug features a subtle speckled abrash effect and is constructed with the finest quality 100% new wool pile.

Green for go. Green is a particular favourite of our customers and features heavily in our traditional rug designs.  This Royal Yelmi circular rug is perfect for the traditional home but the green in this Pakistan Bokhara would work well in either a modern or period home.

Feeling blue?  Midnight blue is bold colour that suits larger spaces.  Combine with brilliant white or a splash of pale grey for a contemporary statement.  These Ella Claire designs are exclusive to FrithRugs and you won’t find them on the High Street.


Bokhara rugs are traditional rugs

The FrithRugs name is synonymous with traditional rugs and these are true masterpieces that never go out of style.  What’s more, a trad...
