Vibrant Living Room | Burnt Orange

In 2021, we are continuing to see the resurgence of rich, saturated hues. Designers and homeowners have not shied away from interiors lavishly swathed in color. This year, burnt orange is one shade taking center stage. Some call it terracotta and others refer to it as amber, but there’s no denying the popularity behind this warm hue.

Add in a pop of colour to match the pink colour break and tie in the space with our St.Pauli pink TV cabinet. Walls with paintings and vases with fresh bright yellow flowers will only help the vibrary of your living room.
