With terracotta and pine green, curry is one of winter’s flagship colours when it comes to bringing warmth to an interior. This curry yellow, darker than traditional yellow and more orange than mustard yellow, creates a cocooning and tonic atmosphere. It finds its place in every room, covering an entire wall or strewn on a sofa, a carpet, a chair, cushions, a pair of curtains, etc. It should however be avoided in the bathroom where, like green, it tends to create a less than flattering light in the mirror. The strength of this colour, evocative of the Indian spice is that it brings a sunny touch to all styles of decoration; it illuminates Scandinavian, ethnic, vintage, industrial and modern atmospheres. In addition, this inspiring yellow is easy to use because it easily blends with a wide range of colours. Discover how to make the most of this spicy hue...
