True to its name, orange in all its incarnations has a Vitamin C effect on home decorating. It refreshes and revitalises. Whether it’s a rusty burnished tone or a cleaner tangerine, orange infuses any room’s design with energy.
Some people tend to be nervous about decorating with orange, however, if you follow our tips, you’ll be well on the way for a successful orange home decor. Really, orange is a wonderfully bright and sunny colour and will brighten up any interior; the trick is knowing just how to use it to the correct extent.
Remember, the decorating scheme won’t work if the orange is in isolation in the room. So, add accents to the room such as orange patterned cushions, or an armchair and pictures in a living room, orange files in a study, lamps and vases in a bedroom, so that the orange is highlighted around the whole room. This way, if you are nervous about this colour, you can add a little at a time. A tip: Orange is a great accent to use with creams and beiges, particularly if you have dark wooden furniture.
Besides, all those bored with using pinks and lilacs for little girls’ bedrooms ought to give orange a chance. If you want to liven things up, use orange with splashes of turquoise but if you want a soothing palette, nothing can beat a white and orange combo.
Blue is a popular colour in kitchens and is often coupled with yellow but why not use orange for a zestier effect?
If you would like to create orange walls but don’t want to paint a solid block of colour, creating a feature wall with wallpaper that has orange within its design can create a happy medium. Orange is right on trend these days and is hitting the home accessories and interiors market. So go on, add a little orange to your decor and some sunshine to your day. Source: EzineArticles
