Recently I’ve noticed that orange has occupied a more prominent role in clothing, makeup, and décor trends. It has been a huge hit on the runway via vivid clothing pieces and distinctive lipsticks. Why shouldn’t orange be the standout color of spring and summer? Orange is a lively hue, warm and energetic. Orange is positive, evoking happiness and creativity. Orange is bright, eye-catching, and easily seen. And no other word in the English language rhymes with orange. This is a truly unique color.
Believe it or not, orange can look good on anyone as long as the right shade is selected. The same principle can be applied to the home. Because it blends sophisticated red with cheerful yellow, orange is an ideal color for home décor. By choosing the right orange for your décor, you can transform a cold space into a welcoming environment. I found a few images displaying ways that orange can be used in the home.
For my first image, I found a bedroom with an eclectic fusion of styles that merge together to produce an intriguing room. The room features traditional Asian designs that are paired beautifully with modern and trendy touches in vibrant orange. The splash of orange of the accent wall and ikat throw pillows gives life to what could be seen as an otherwise lackluster room.
The next image shows a transitional living room with orange accents via throw pillows, ottomans, and window seating. The orange used in this room is not overpowering; however, it used strategically, balancing out the blue of the built-ins, walls, and rug. By adding orange, an inviting living space is developed.
Orange can also be used in traditional style as well. Traditional décor can occasionally be seen as bland, but by adding a lighter shade of orange, you can create exceptional warmth within the room. The yellow-orange hue in the final image is not overwhelming; rather it flows seamlessly alongside the neutral palette.
Don’t be afraid to use orange in your home. Remember, as long as you have the perfect shade, you can create a striking space.
