As I’ve mentioned, orange is one of my all-time favorite colors. That’s why fall decorating is so much fun! With Halloween right around the corner and the leaves changing colors, orange is a hot color and it’s cropping up all over the place. What’s great about orange is that it’s not just a seasonal color; if you want to use it in your home, it won’t look strictly “summery” or “fall-ish,” making it a versatile decorating color. Plus, it’s one of those colors that instantly cheers you up!
Here are some truly gorgeous rooms all around the house that have inspired me to be a little more daring with my colors (though I didn’t need much inspiration to use orange anyway!). I hope you like them as much as I do!
Because orange is a color designed to stimulate, it’s best used in a darker shade or smaller quantities in a bedroom. Try an accent wall, muted shades, and/or accessories to wake up the bedroom without making it hard to relax in.
Want your home to look warm and welcoming without looking like Halloween all year round? Add a pop of color by painting your front door orange! It works on all houses, from the contemporary to the traditional to the ultra-modern.
