5 Ways To Use Orange In Your Room
Whether you like it bold or subdued, there's an orange shade for you
Orange may not be bold as red, but it can add drama just as well. If you want your space to look refreshing and summery, you can use orange, too. Here are some ideas:
1. Use it as kitchen backsplash.
It adds an instant jolt of color in this all-neutral kitchen designed by Nina Santamaria, principal designer of Grupo Santamaria Interior Design. You can have backsplash made by Sprayworks Coating, Inc., 65-A East Riverside St., Quezon City.
2. Use it in soft furnishings and accessories.
If you don’t want an orange wall, you can still use this color by way of accessories. In this living area, the orange area rug ties the look together, and smaller doses are seen through the throw pillows and wall art.
3. Paint an orange accent wall.
The juicy melon wall makes for a great feature wall in this living area. And because there are already pops of color in other parts of the room, a painting with colors like sunset keeps the wall from looking plain without competing with the other elements in the room.
4. Get orange patterned pieces.
Add varying shades and tones to make your space more interesting. The patterned accent wall makes for a great focal point in this living area designed by Hannah Acab-Faustino, principal designer of IDeal Interior Design Services.
5. Use dark shades of orange and mix them with red.
If you want your space to look intense and dramatic, go for deeper shades that almost border on red. This Moroccan-inspired dining setup looks romantic through the use of red orange and saffron tones. Warm lighting from the hurricane lamp serves as a beautiful finishing touch.
