Orange is a tricky color to work with in home design. I can’t say it is one of my favorites, but when it is done right it really makes a statement! I do love the liveliness and positivity of orange. It can be a pleasing accent if you are careful and use a light touch.
Here are a few tips for decorating with orange:
- Pair with white. Orange and white is a great combination. I like a crisp, pure white with my orange! Other neutrals like cream and gray also work well.
- Be careful with the shade or orange. Whether you choose mandarin, pumpkin or spice, you will want to stay closely in that color family with your accents.
- Think about where you want to place your orange accents. A pillow, rug, or piece of art works well. Even small touches like an orange vase will add some punch.
- Balance is important. If you are going to go there with orange, make sure there is more than one orange thing in the room. But be careful, don’t overdo!
