October unveils its grandest spectacle – evening skies awash in hues of neon. Marking a pause and a moment to hit reset, hot orange is your cue to embrace the magic.

The Inspiration
The unstoppable surge of energy with the zest of sun kissed smiles, orange is a tightrope walk between hope and adventure, with a side of danger. Handle with caution and care!

The Accents
The citrusy tang mirrors the zingy vibrancy of its hue. From that striking accent to perhaps a wall washed in orangy goodness, take a dip in dynamic energy that’s as invigorating as a fresh squeeze of orange juice on a bright Sunday morning.

The Features
Challenging the notions of its saffron-hued cousin, drawing from the warmth of the sun, but reminiscent of a dangerously delightful volcano, orange becomes a nonconformist hero, a citrus surprise dancing amid whites. This whimsical fusion of form and flair finds expression in the fluid artwork and an unconventional chair within the guest bedroom of an apartment in Mumbai, designed by the The Act of Quad.
