Orange doesn’t always have to be intensely bright. Ochre, for example, is an earthy pigment that varies from a golden yellow shade to a light yellow brown colour. The pigment is probably the humankind's first paint pot, used extensively by our ancestors. The pigment can be traced back to the earliest cave paintings.
From autumn leaves to fields of wheat, ochre tones are associated with all things natural. When used in decorating, they instantly evoke a cosy and intimate feel, making them a perfect choice for bedrooms or in any space where you want to make guests feel at home. Ochre looks particularly glorious with timber flooring and natural furnishings, such as a textured jute rug or accessories in leather and cork.
