|The brown faux-trim to create a more defined space for the framed
pictures is a beautifully smart way to draw the eye.
Orange, a color to challenge your abilities as an interior decorator. With the recent move to my new home I decided upon painting the home office orange, a medium-bodied orange true to the color of... orange, not deep orange, bright orange, yellow orange, red orange or any of those other orange-ish colors. My office, is simply orange. With the choice of the orange office came a difficult task (which is still on-going) of making the office what I want it to be, I will admit that orange has been a challenging hue to work with, perhaps because there are only a few colors that actually go well with orange, or perhaps it is because the tone of orange which is decidedly Fall/Winter and exuberates the feeling of warmth while still upholding the room with a kind of lightness- orange can do this with a depth that is most shocking. Because of these things orange is neither here or there and one must work harder than usual to get the look of a room just right when using orange.
|Using orange against a white backdrop in a modern setting will probably always be the easiest way to go with orange.
|Or one can go ALL OUT with orange walls, orange flooring and orange furnishings.
The art deco styled room is perfect for the color orange.
|One can get away with using the Halloween pairing of orange and black by incorporating
white and a few bits of earthy wooden and brown tones into the mix. A smart way to
play on and play-up the warmth in orange.
|Some may think 'Country Bumpkin' but I quite like this country-feeling decor with
the key theme of orange. I find orange to be right at home and in it's element
within this decor style.
|Or use a deep orange to create a more homely kitchen environment. Remember the warmer the hue the
friendlier and cozy it will seem.
|Quirky and eccentric! This orange walled dining-room uses large wall art in order to tie
in the bright blues and whites while using a long black dining table to ground the room.
|Orange paired with gray and white will create a very modern affect, that is
light and airy.
