size does not matter

Whenever I’m drawn into a discussion on home decoration, I hear a common refrain from some of my friends. “Oh but my home’s small, so it’s hard to make it look nice,” they’d tell me. When that happens, I refute the claim, telling them that it is definitely possible to have a nice pad, regardless of square footage. I’ve been to some landed properties with impressive footprints which are in desperate need of a design intervention, while, on the other hand, I’ve visited shoebox apartments that are so charming, I wish they belonged to me.

Still not convinced it’s the colour for your living room? We suggest experimenting with it on soft furnishings and patterned fabrics, especially those from labels such as Missoni Home and Marimekko, which are known for using orange in artful and lovely ways. The effect looks even better, when paired with the beautiful patterns of wood grain. the experts “Local homeowners are careful about using bright colours on…
