Have you ever wondered why orange is associated with #Halloween? There are numerous different theories, some say it’s because it’s the colour of autumn, while others say it’s a colour the Celts wore in battle. One thing is for sure - it’s a lovely colour to use at #home.
Homeowners are often keen to use red in a dining room - but orange will create a fabulous ambience. If you want to create a moody, earthy tone, perfect for candle lit dinners then go for burnt orange tones and wooden furniture. Even a period dining room will suit dark orange as its earthy tones work well with traditional rugs and open fires.
If you have a conservatory, an orange rug will work really well, especially if you have exposed brick walls and real wood floors. Again, carefully selected accessories will help set the tone for the time of year. A bright orange rug gives will suggest the warming rays of the sun, something more muted is will give a warm glow in the autumn/winter. Perfect for curling up with a good book.
We all know that oranges are packed with Vitamin C and if you choose orange at home it will be an instant pick me up thanks to its zesty, bright appeal and that’s why it’s probably best used in day time rooms.
