4. Individuality

Bringing the color orange into your home does not automatically mean you have to pay homage to 70s inspired décor, or that you are looking for a bohemian vibe. The color on a single piece of furniture like this couch can give your room a high end feel and unique style that can’t be found anywhere else.
