It's reddish orange hue creates positive energy and warmth. You will be seeing it on the runway, in the fashion news along with home decor and furnishings. It's attention grabbing and surprisingly flexible so don't let this color intimidate you. As designers, we are thrilled with this choice and have a few tips to incorporate this color into your home. Tip#1 If you decide that you love this bold new color and would like to use it in an entire room, do not hesitate. It is warm, cheerful, inviting and you can tone it down a little with neutral accents of Khaki, Greys, Tans and Blacks if you are just a little apprehensive.
