With Holi having just passed, we’re still reminded of bright, vibrant colours, which are especially fun when thinking décor! This leads to why we've chosen a specific hue as the theme for our monthly round-up of must-haves, this March. What’s brighter than an orange? A blood orange to be precise. Blood oranges are fruit with crimson, almost blood-coloured flesh, making it very popular for desserts and cocktails. A powerful and dynamic shade, orange can add a sense of warmth and energy to your space and is great to revamp a dull room. When looking at colours and physiology, orange is seen to increase the heart rate and have a stimulating effect on the nervous system, therefore making this shade work like a natural antidepressant. Research shows that we unconsciously connect the colour orange with activity, optimism and light, so you really can’t go wrong with any of the products on this list. What's more, with the Discern Living mobile app (Available on Google Play Store or iOS App Store) having just launched, we're celebrating our brand and all that it stands for. It’s no surprise then that we’ve chosen this effervescent hue as Discern Living’s signature shade - we’re all about positivity and brightness!
