Sometimes a colour that is so full of energy it takes over a room is exactly what’s called for. I first encountered this iron oxide rich colour at Malahide Castle near Dublin and it has lodged in my mind ever since. There it works beautifully with strong blue curtains and a tide of gilt framed pictures and mahogany furniture. It would be equally well suited to a statement wall in a minimalist interior and will incline the viewer more to a smile than a sharp intake of breath!
