In applying decorations inspired by the atmosphere of the desert, Sophia explains that “the improvement of the house with natural lighting is one of the basic principles, to reflect the positive matter on the psyche of the inhabitants; it is achieved by the use of mirrors, and the use of some colors reminiscent of sand dunes and desert details. ” The colors are varied, as follows:


Gold is a light color that radiates luxury
Gold is a bright color that spreads luxury wherever it goes

The sands of the desert, colored with glittering gold, sway under the rays of the sun and attract the eyes of the beholder; Gold is a light color that spreads luxury wherever it goes, and is associated with the qualities of abundance, prosperity, luxury, prestige and elegance, as well as optimism, contentment, victory and success because it is the color of the sun.

Orange is considered one of the bold colors in interior decoration, as it is a mixture of red and yellow, and is considered a decoration that “refreshes” the house and renews it, especially when it comes to specific places, accompanying with the calm neutral colors that characterize the basics in decoration and large pieces. In this context, Sophia invites the architect to choose the orange color for the beige pillows, which adds more welcome to the space. If you want to choose orange curtains, it is recommended that they be simple in design, so that the wall behind them is painted in beige (or creamy white).
Autumn orange house accessories of dried leaves and dried flowers decorate the room as well. On top of that, warm orange is mixed with cool gray to balance it out. To enhance the luxury factor, it is preferable to introduce brown wood in its various shades, with orange, which enhances the warm atmosphere.

Yellow is one of the most influential colors in interior decoration, and it is said in color science that it brings energy and activity to the interior of the home.

Spread the mustard yellow pillows on the creamy white couch, along with a mustard yellow single seat. It also attracts the installation of a “Modern” panel of yellow, orange, green and blue, on one of the empty walls. There is no objection to using wallpaper that overlaps gray and yellow.


The shades of brown vary, from beige to the color of chocolate; Note that brown achieves luxury wherever it goes, and is in line with mustard yellow and orange, and is included in the design of rugs, home accessories and paintings, and even in the design of chandeliers.
Brown symbolizes the fallen leaves of autumn, colored in different gradations, and the color of the soil, desert sand, earth, trees, wood and other fertile parts of nature. On the other hand, the brown color may look a bit dull and stiff when used incorrectly, such as using it in an excessive amount, but at the same time it is a neutral color that includes a wide range of shades that can be exploited and mixed with other natural colors to achieve an attractive balance, such as: green or gold (sun color).
