Orange—that Halloween (and Princeton) mainstay—is not generally the first thing that comes to mind when choosing a color for a room. That’s a shame, because orange can perk up a lifeless space. It makes a bold statement. It’s brazen and confident and slightly unpredictable. You don’t see it coming, but it tends to make its presence known.
Nature’s autumnal tones bring a number of gorgeous shades that you can incorporate into your interiors. Chief among them is orange. This eye-catching shade is the perfect accent to make your home feel warm and inviting for the season or all year long.
It’s true that orange is a strong shade, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a place in your home. Below are some easy ways to incorporate this shade into your home without it feeling too overwhelming.
Accessories: If you only want the shade to stick around for the fall, consider using it in small doses throughout the space via your accessories. Think about using the shade in your throw pillows, blankets, rugs, wall art and décor. Here, you’ll want to repeat the shade in multiple applications throughout the room in order to tie the look together.
Furniture: When incorporating the shade into the room through furniture, one piece is usually enough. Allow it to become the focal point of the space. In this case, you’ll want to balance out the look by also including the color in the room’s accessories.
