Summer's finally here! Why not infuse some of that sunshine into your home décor? Although orange isn't a color that people immediately jump to when they are decorating, it could be just the refreshing new touch that your house needs.
Here are four fun ways to bring orange into your home.
Don't these citrus colored walls make your mouth water? This approach to the dining room goes to show that oranges don't only belong on the table. While orange walls can sometimes get overwhelming, the white accents of the benches and window frame complement the color perfectly and give the shade just the right effect.
Just as the citrus color can whet your appetite, a softer and toned down orange can easily get you into your zen. Stay away from boring neutrals that will make your mind go numb at your home office! A good shade of orange can stimulate and inspire. Bold orange vases, curtains or throw pillows go perfectly with the toned down shade on the wall.
Don't feel ready to go all the way (so to speak) with our new favorite hue? That's OK. You don't have to commit to a whole wall to experiment with orange. Start slow with some accent pieces. A burnt orange stair runner or bookcase interior is an unexpected way to spice up any room.
But seasons and moods change. What if you don't want to be bright and sunny all the time? Is there a way to make orange elegant? Absolutely.
A bright orange sofa goes perfectly with glamorous peacock blue walls, giving your living room an approachable but antique-y feel. Vintage chairs and tables make you feel like you stepped into the sophisticated old world, but the orange accent has the power to keep you grounded in the 21st century.
