The right color scheme will make your orange walls look all the more attractive, and keep the compliments pouring in.
Through this Buzzle post we give you some color schemes and decoration ideas for orange walls.
Blue and orange are complementary colors on the color wheel, no doubt they look so good! Add some green to the combo, and you get the perfect color scheme. The blue and green balances out the brightness and boldness of the orange wall, to give a trendy look to your living room. A little touch of white helps to tone down the colors.
If too much brightness is not your cup of tea, then gray will be your go-to color. The orange-gray color scheme is very balancing. Don't go for a very tangy orange shade though, terracotta or mango goes well with gray. You can also use a little white or black, but don't bring in any more colors to the picture.
We all know how good black and red look. Though orange and red are very close in the color wheel, they don't clash with each other. This color scheme works really well, and it has got a very young vibe to it. Keep the red minimal, and let orange steal the show. See how the black sofa beautifully balances both the fiery colors.
Orange + Pink + Gray + Green
Just because orange is a bold color doesn't mean you need to stick to neutral colors. You can, in fact should, involve more colors. This color scheme is the perfect for all those who like it a little bright and colorful. The pink, orange, and green scheme works wonders, and a little gray brings subtlety to this vibrant combination.
Look how welcoming and warm this living room looks. Well, if that is the effect you want, then go for different shades of orange. Right from the sofa to the curtains, use all colors from the orange family. Don't just stick to one shade of orange throughout, as your room may end up looking too monotonous. This color scheme is suitable for living rooms only. It can be too fierce and stimulating for bedrooms.
Since orange is such a stimulating color, having all the walls of your bedroom painted in bright orange may be a little disturbing when sleeping. You can go for very light orange or have a single orange-colored wall as shown above. See how the black and white beautifully balance the orange ascents to create a harmonious atmosphere.
Having orange color in your kitchen is a good idea, as this color increases appetite. Orange walls with white or cream cabinets look very classy. The black, white, and orange combination works really well, to give a vibrant yet elegant effect.
Now this color doesn't seem that tricky, right? Your personal taste will matter the most, as orange can be a little overwhelming for some people. A small dose of this exciting color can be a good start!
