Decorating With Orange

Monochromatic

This sophisticated and soothing scheme lends itself well to modern spaces. It uses tints and shades of one color, staying within the same column on the color wheel. A monochromatic scheme for orange might feature a range of tones from pale pumpkin to burnt orange.

If the idea of an all-orange room is giving you flashbacks of 1970s décor and shag carpeting, fear not! Decorators are now embracing this hue for its softer side, and this beautiful bedroom proves that orange can actually be relaxing. It's all about the tones you use.

Since orange is a color that demands your attention, you'll want to use mostly tints–or lighter tones–to keep it from overpowering your space. In this bedroom, the apricot paint creates a soothing backdrop that's perfect for a space where you'll spend most of your time sleeping.

With pale orange walls, you can now start to sprinkle in darker shades of orange throughout your room. Artwork, vases, patterned bedding and even marble-top furniture with hints of orange are all great ways to introduce your variations of this hue.

And just remember, while you may be over-the-moon for orange, even you will grow tired of its attention-demanding personality if you overdo it!
