AT Europe Close-Up: Easy Orange Accents

AT Europe Close-Up: Easy Orange Accents

In reviewing some favorite house tours, like Amélie and John's Converted London Warehouse from last week or Raphaëlle and François's lovely Parisian flat, something jumped out: the use of easy orange accents to brighten up beautifully neutral interiors. Then I looked out the window and realized the lesson had been there all along in the view of orange chimneys that punctuate the gray Paris skyline. More orange accents -- this time on the inside -- after the jump.

Here are some favorite uses of orange from recent house tours, starting with this image from Amélie and John's Converted London Warehouse:
