I was inspired by the article “Pick&Mix” in the August edition of Elle Decoration UK . The reader is encouraged to add a surprise shade to the colour scheme of a room.
Well I find orange a surprising shade – so I had some fun adding touches of spunky orange to my neutral colour scheme. The orange fronds came from a palm growing in my garden.
The orange cushion was made from a vintage silk evening dress. Isn't the pattern beautiful?
The 2 neutral cushions on the couch were made from an old cricket pullover!

Orange really is my favourite colour! It seems to go with everything, always in a surprising way. I love the cushions.

I love that orange pillow, the minute detail and pattern is really beautiful.
