Accents of orange

Orange, what a wonderful colour!
Orange adds light and warmth into your house.
It is one of my favourite colours, so I try to bring it in my own as well as in my clients interiors.
You can easily combine orange with a lot of other colours : with black, white, brown, purple, green.
You can even use it in summer as in winterseason. It can be used in a classic, a modern or a contemporary interior.
An accent of orange can do enough to give your interior a warmer feeling!

An orange cushion in my entry hal. When people enter they immediately feel the warmth of it.

Beautiful to me! The inside of the cabinet is painted in a shade of orange.
And notice the colours of the rug.

Just a little accent of orange in this living room of Brigitte and Alain Garnier.

Even Axel Vervoordt seems to like the glow of orange in his venetian appartment.

Shades of orange in a painting from the Belgian Artist Scrivo.

My little bench was earlier covered in a brown fabric . The orange velvet contrasts much better with the dark coloured wood.

Everyone knows the famous Hermès-orange.

And this is a painting of a future artist : my niece Sarah Lefèvre.
She has made it for me 2 years ago when she was only 9 years old!
Gorgeous isn't it?
Thank you so much Sarah!
A nice weekend for everyone!
