Spiced Amber covers this season’s hottest hues. Capturing the sunlight, and our imaginations, this theme embraces yellows, oranges, and earthy tones. This evocative colour scheme boosts energy, exudes excitement, and makes a powerful statement. Transform your interior and start every day on a positive note with this bold, bright, and beautiful palette.
Yellow. The colour of hope, happiness, and sunshine. This bright and welcoming colour creates an inviting presence in your home. Above all, this colour stands out. For example, New York City taxi cabs are purposefully painted to yellow to be spotted from far away against the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. In furniture, the shades aren’t usually as vivid, they tend to be more relaxed, amber-like colours. However, a mustard coloured chair, for instance, will still boldly stand out against its surroundings. With its eye-catching nature, it’s no surprise that yellow makes for a perfect accent colour. It will highlight the most important elements, or what you want to show off, in your home.
Like yellow, orange is warm, passionate, and stimulating. The colour of fire and sun, this joyfully bold colour is reserved only for the courageous. To make an impact, orange doesn’t need to be the main colour of a room, in fact, it works best when used as an accent colour. Something as simple as an orange throw or cushion can bring a room to life. However, this colour doesn’t have to solely be the centre of attention. A darker burnt orange can provide a soothing, warm glow of sophistication.
With these tones, the key is to not go overboard. There certainly can be too much of a good thing. To avoid this, and the reactions that come with it, consider breaking the colour up with white, toning down with greys, or using the following complementary colours to get the most out of these tones.
Dash of Cinnamon
Complementary, reddish browns and cinnamons will add a layer of depth and decadence. These earthy tones will complement yellows and oranges to perfection, creating a sophisticated sunset atmosphere.
By themselves, orange and yellow already make a statement. But when backed with black, these colours really stand out. Pack a punch by placing a yellow stool by a black kitchen island or create firey pops of colour by throwing orange cushions onto a black velvet sofa.
