Colour Spotlight: Add Warmth To Your Rooms With This Earthy Yellow

This season, elevate your rooms with a dose of ochre. The oldest natural pigment, dug from the earth itself, this moody yellow adds a hint of historical pedigree. You will have seen it used in damask wallpapers, velvet drapes and upholstery, and glazed ceramics. At home in both traditional and contemporary spaces, ochre brings a warm, inviting glow. Envelop a powder room for an unexpected hit of color, or add ochre pillows, rugs or vessels to rooms. Off-whites, deep golds, browns and russets are good accents to layer on. “Ochre is elegant in traditional spaces and adds just the right amount of warmth to modern rooms,” says H&H’s Amanda Smith.
