- Marigolds/Honey: In a room of honey colour use couches in simple monotones like Dusty Pink or Blush. Honey or Marigold shades has a bright presence to itself and we don’t want even brighter couches to take the centre stage and mar the effect of these special colours in the brightness. Use eccentric colours like Sage Green for wall fixtures and showstopper centre table of Hickory or Chocolate colours. Rethink the coffee table using small sized movable and elegant centrepieces.
