Colour Cocktail: The Orange Crush

Moving day is looming and the Mr. isn't happy about loosing his bachelor pad. "Yikes", shrieks the Mrs. over her second Apple Martini, "He's all X Box this, PlayStation that and I'm standing there thinking: 'What about my favourite Orla Kiely prints?!'" Fear not, as this Mr. and Mrs. needn't fret for long, no sirree. The orange crush will solve their decor dilemmas. This hot little colour combo will see them through their first place together, with punchy orange tones adding masculinity for the Mr. Meanwhile, the Mrs. can work in her favourite patterns, textiles and delicate prints to soften the look. Phew! Looks like it won't be handbags and PlayStations at dawn after all.
