Weekly Interior Inspo: Minimalistic Orange

Saturday 16 January 2021


Welcome back to my Interior Inspo corner!
I have been away for a while from my blog and have been gathering inspiring material for you all.
This week I would like to take you into my recent liking: bringing an orange colour to sit with us on the table and discuss how you can easily incorporate it.

As an Autumn lover ( my favourite season) naturally I am drawn to more earthy colours and materials.
In the picture above we can clearly observe that orange fits in pretty well, even if you are a minimal design lover.
So liking black and white/grey scheme that tends to be very clean and cold toned, would not stop you from
bringing some colour and if you also like orange like me, it is a great way to invite some warmth into your home, especially if you have plants as well.
Orange binds really well with greenery and wooden elements, as well as copper, brass and other warm metals you might want to incorporate around your interior as small details.

In the photo above you can see how you can also bring orange hues incorporated in the wood or like we have done here in the kitchen lighting: using copper/brass shades.
It worked quite well as we have wood in warm tones throughout the entire interior.
Starting with the dining table, the bar stools and the kitchen minimal shelving. Combined with accessories in copper scattered around, it really makes the interior a bit warmer and cosier.
Next step or how to bring this forward is by adding elements that will act as a strong contrast but still
work quite well with the warm hues. 
We have a dark wooden floor ( warm toned), which makes the white stands out even more. 
The final touch is bringing black metal elements, small so not too much in the face, as we want the focus to be on the airy white feel with a splash of colour.
You can observe the photo above how the black acts as a perfect contrast and looks awesome in conjunction with the orange. 

One of my favourites as well is bringing some plants into this mix. And if you are bold enough, notice te teal coloured front door?!

Talking about teal, orange and being bold with colour, have a look at the image above!
I really love how the teal interacts with the warm light from the minimal lighting bulbs with dark cables for extra contrast, as well as the orange Smeg.
Perfect if you want to up the game of a small space and make it stand out.

And again, plants and wooden elements seem to go hand by hand with this colour scheme.

If you like orange but prefer a slightly more subtle hue of it, well then copper/brass is the perfect material to incorporate in your plans.
And please do not worry if you already have silver elements placed( like the oven or the hob tops) I have been saying this for years now: But it really doesn't matter anymore! You can mix and match metal finishes as long as they look good together as in the image above. There isn't a rule of law where it says you must not. 
Interior designers are open-minded creatures, brave enough to open their minds and think out of the box.
New things and mixtures excite us and we would never say no to a brave idea. So, whoever tells you that you should not, well how about you switch to a different designer that has an open mind.
And maybe the result will be similar to the one above :)

This one is one of my top favourite schemes and results ever achieved!

I love it because it brings peace and calm and has this airy, earthy feel.

Contrast with mix of light, dark and warmer wood, leather and metal, black and white and a game 

of lines, squares and textures.

I am curious to read your thought about this space!

A prime example of a minimal design that is warm and inviting.

Here we have focused on materials admixing them bravely. we have wood, stone, metal and all in different colours as per material, which is what makes this so interesting, yet keeps its minimalistic look.

Notice the glass door? It actually plays a vital part in making the space fluid, like light is floating throughout the different rooms.

Another example of mixing brass, copper and silver metal that has worked pretty amazing.

The wood and marble elements add even more sleek look to the place.

Biggest example orange is the perfect companion to greener. Notice the scatter cushion and the insight brass finish of the light shade?

again we have dark for contrast, wooden floor as an earthy element which sits awesome with the brick wall and white finish on the walls. Not to mention the island which is cold tone but makes a perfect addition to this scheme.
