Imagine your home in the color of sunsets, of a citrus fruit, of Autumn leaves that have dried and are about to fall. What? Not a fan of orange? Well, these bits of info, as well as, sample schemes, might just convince you to try the color on one of your living spaces.
Orange is one of the firsts that comes to mind when thinking of warm colors. It is the equal mix of yellow and red. The color is said to stimulate activity, appetite and interaction or socialization. For decor purposes, orange can be a bright pop of color in deep or strong hue background, and can also be central in a theme such as the following samples.
Orange Color Schemes to Try
Just as there are many things colored orange, there are also more shades, tones and variations under the color. For a lively, Moroccan-inspired space, utilize a color scheme of warm orange, golden yellow, and lime green.
Soften the rich orange with neutral flooring or wooden fixtures. A stylish Moroccan rug should add or contribute to the theme.
Country-style puts the colors of persimmon and yellow on neutral background with accent pieces (such as pillows, chair cushions and fabrics) in the color of orange-red and solid yellow.
Before you start spreading bright hues into the room, start with white walls, shelves and other wall instalments. This should allow for elements in fuschia and tangerine to pop out. Consider pink rugs, hot pink throw pillows and tangerine table pieces.
There’s no denying that orange is the default color of cozy. For this terra-cotta color scheme, use bold orange, red and yellow on a pale wall for a soothing combination. Further hold the mix of colors with the use of black on various items in the room.
Earthy-colored pieces and clay vases and fixtures would be a nice touch to rooms and spaces with this color scheme. It is a terra-cotta look that we’re aiming for, after all.
