As much as I hate the cold, I do love autumn colours. As October seems to be Pumpkin month, I decided to look up pictures of interiors with orange colour schemes. What I found are some truly luscious interiors! Orange can be done fresh and juicy or warm and cosy or as an electrifying punch in a monochrome scheme. Here is an outdoor patio where orange plays a cheerful and inviting accent colour. Yet with dim lighting the orange accents is nearly matching the warm pine wood.
In this room the orange wallpaper instantly transforms this mainly beige bedroom into a pretty bright relaxing retreat.
The bedroom below has just two accent pieces in orange that plays up the melons depicted in the picture on the wall. The owner can simply exchange the throw and cushion for a different colour to change the look.
The owner of the next bedroom went for the dramatic by painting the walls orange. Try and picture this same bedroom with beige walls and you get the idea what a terrific difference this makes.
We have mainly seen orange used with beige and brown furnishings but just look how lovely it looks paired with grey in this nursery below. So cute and modern!
Orange in the bathroom? Of course! Love those tiles with the orange painted wall above it!
How about an orange kitchen? These orange cupboard doors really pack a punch next to the dusky grey.
Here you have a kitchen with a bold orange paired with white cupboards looking fresh and modern. This is not at all like the 70’s orange kitchen your grandmother may have had.
Here’s my favourite orange kitchen! Pairing it with dark brown wood gives it an updated traditional family feel to it.
Such a stunning living room using a bit of orange and mixing it with some green and blue as well. Btw, blue and orange make for a great up-lifting colour combination in interior decorating.
I might never have considered orange for a formal dining room until now. The orange walls pick up the orange splashes in that gorgeous rug. So there you have it! No matter which room you are decorating in the house and no matter what your design style preference is, orange can be a fabulous choice!
