Auburn

Ideal Home (UK) - - Contents -

DON’T DIS­MISS IT AS OR­ANGE! THIS SMOOTH SHADE HAS ENOUGH BROWN IN IT TO MAKE IT MORE OF A NEU­TRAL THAN AN AC­CENT COLOUR. USE IT OVER LARGE AR­EAS TO FILL YOUR ROOM WITH A MEL­LOW GLOW AND A DIS­TINCTLY OP­U­LENT MOOD. JUST TEAM IT WITH THE RIGHT AC­CENTS AND TEX­TURES FOR A DEC­O­RAT­ING SCHEME THAT LOOKS MOD­ERN AND SO­PHIS­TI­CATED…

Year-round com­fort

Auburn is per­fect for a cosy win­ter scheme, lay­ered with vel­vet cush­ions and gold de­tails, but in sum­mer, give this baked ter­ra­cotta colour a global spin with Moroc­can lanterns and crisp cot­ton ikat fab­rics

Stylist’s note

Don’t team auburn with white – choose warm creams and greys to keep the over­all look mel­low nicky PHILLIPS, DEC­O­RAT­ING ED­I­TOR

Stylist’s note

Solid auburn colour on the walls would be hard to live with, so choose a faux-sur­face wall­pa­per with a mot­tled look for a softer ef­fect

SARITA SHARMA, Stylist

Go luxe in the bed­room

This rich colour lends it­self to an op­u­lent look – per­fect for a so­phis­ti­cated bed­room scheme, loaded with plush tex­tures and fin­ished with me­tal­lic touches
