Decorating With Orange

MonochromaticComplementarySplit Complementary


Perhaps one of the most pleasing palettes, analogous colors reside right next to each other on the color wheel. For example, an orange analogous color scheme includes yellow-orange and orange-red. Since they share a common component, these hues always look good together.

Taking the plunge with this zesty color palette can feel like you're drowning in orange. But with the right choices, you can still make a splash without going overboard! Neighbors to orange on the color wheel, this yellow-orange and orange-red living room is one part spice to two parts subtlety–an ideal ratio if you're looking to ease into orange.

To recreate this space, start with a dijon sectional and a similar color for the walls. The near-neutral properties create a nice foundation by which to build different color profiles with orange as the base. Combining solid and printed rust-colored pillows and window treatments, for instance, really makes the furniture pop! And even though this palette is fairly bold, it's also entirely welcoming thanks to the neutral elements.

The floor lamp's yellow-gold shade and muted area rug help counterbalance all the spicier tones in the room. As a finishing touch, the dark brown tables with copper bases add another jolt of orange-red to complete this citrusy theme!
