Burnt orange interiors!
Burnt orange has featured as a key colour on the runway for a few seasons now but it looks as if burnt orange, sand and mahogany tones will be the key colour palette for Spring 2013. This warm colour reminds me of Autumnal foliage yet shades of this rich colour have been appearing on the runways from blocked colour to subtle accessories. I guess the beauty of this colour is its versatility as it isn’t a colour just suited to one season.
The Autumn 2012 runways have spoken with several designers featuring highlights of burnt orange being seen between neutrals, taupes and blacks. Hackett, Jonathan Saunders and Pringle of Scotland have all embraced this colour and have included several variations from their knitwear to outerwear pieces. Either way you look at it, this striking colour will reach its height in popularity in the coming seasons.
As I have written about before, fashion and interior design are so closely connected that it will be no surprise that this warm, glowing colour is also set to be a major hit in our homes. Burnt orange in interiors evokes a sense of warmth and comfort and this striking colour pairs well with the likes of chocolate brown, tan, blue and charcoal. The number one rule when using this shade of orange in decorating is to use it sparingly to avoid and overwhelming look. The best way to use such a rich colour is as an accent. Use wallpaper on a feature wall with burnt orange as the primary colour, or alternatively paint a single wall for a focal point but remember to use additional accents elsewhere to tie the scheme together. To create a cohesive space, use cushions, throws, rugs, towels and glassware for pops of colour. Have a look at the interiors below that embrace this colour palette.
