ORANGE is the new black; LIVING notes; Bright, sunshiney days lie ahead with the juiciest, most vibrant colour around. You'll never go back to black...

Make it work for you

PAINT your walls terracotta for a warm, cosy feel. When it comes to the rest of the room, don't go overboard on orange or it will look like a bad fake tan job. Instead, opt for a few cushions and vases to pull the scheme together.

PICK dark wood furniture which goes well with orange hues. It's easy to find pieces that match, even if they're from different stores. LIGHTEN UP the room with a cream carpet and sofa. The sofa will stand out against the darker colours and become your focus point, especially with some orange and pink cushions - contrasting colours are your friend.

INVEST in some wall art. Pick a canvas with multiple shades rather than one colour block, it will tie together all the colours in your room and a strong pattern will stand out against a blank wall.

BUY a textured rug to go under your coffee table. It will hide any stains your otherwise cream floor would struggle to conceal. ADD impact with bold shapes. Sculptures and plants are excellent for this. DON'T overfill your bookshelf. You want to be able to see the dark, rustic wood, so experiment with where you position your items.
