Decorating with Orange

Orange is a bold and daring color to decorate with. But done right it can transform your space into a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Orange Paint
If you choose a vibrant orange consider just painting one wall with the color so it isn't overpowering. 

If you do choose a bright vibrant orange consider muting it with a design in a lighter or darker orange.

If you don't wish to stencil or paint free hand on your wall you can also achieve the goal of muting the vibrant color by scrunching up a towel, dipping it in the color and dabbing it on the wall. This can also be done with a paper bag, plastic grocery bag, etc.

Accents to enhance the color
Paint trim and baseboards white to accent the orange.

Green plants also accent orange.

If you don't want to paint an entire wall or room orange consider curtains or pillows in orange.

Here are some great fabric finds to consider using.
