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.
A bathroom is the perfect place for a pop of lively orange.
If you don’t want to go dramatically orange (or your budget doesn’t allow for it), try adding fun knobs, baskets, towels, rugs, and other accessories.
Orange’s cheery and stimulating properties make it an excellent choice – in any shade – for children’s rooms (boys’ and girls’), playrooms, and homework areas.
While many living rooms tend to be formal, orange can warm them up without sacrificing sophistication.
