I’ve discovered my new all-time favourite modular sofa in this tangerine dream space located in East London. Camaleonda is huge, voluptuous and inviting. The fact that it’s bright orange only adds to its appeal to me.
I also love the large, glass-topped coffee table which appears to double up as useful storage. I couldn’t discover anything about the maker, but Habitat does something that would work similarly. Do you know the designer or manufacturer? Also, can you identify the white, cone-shaped item next to the sofa? Is it a lamp? A water fountain? An ashtray? I’m stumped!

Last week’s Home Tones told of Adelle’s favourite colour, violet. This week it’s another favourite shade of another favourite colour; tangerine and orange respectively. A vibrant and eye-catching hue that’s not to everyone’s taste, but we adore it! We have it dotted throughout our house.
Because it can be so overwhelming it should only be used in flashes & splashes – feature walls, doors, artwork and the like.
Citrus conjures up strong feelings; it ambushes all the senses. The scent is fresh and reviving. The taste zings on the tongue and the palate. The greens, yellows and ahem… oranges are eye-catching, vibrant and bright. Citrus is invigorating, uplifting, mood-enhancing and health-giving.

Regular readers will know of my enduring attraction to all things tangerine. I have never seen bright orange cords – I guess they could be difficult to pull of sartorially – but I LOVE them!

Many, many years ago in the London sales, we bought an Yves St Laurent orange bath towel set from Selfridges. They were beautiful, soft & fluffy when we got them; but now, with constant use and laundering, they’ve become a bit faded, thin & threadbare.
We’ve been looking for replacements for a while now – but the ones we’ve been seeing in the shops have all been the wrong shade of orange. You know the hue – a bit salmon or terracotta – not that knockout tangerine that we love.
Now, just like the proverbial buses, we’ve found three shops that have examples that are just right!
