Beautiful shades of orange in autumn leaves.

Give a happy welcome to guests with ochre

These earthy tones of orange are naturally inviting.

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 most ancient of all organic pigments, ochre was used widely in prehistoric art, most notably in Palaeolithic murals found in a series of magnificently painted caves in France.

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 sisal rug or accessories in leather and cork.
