If you want to add a fun punch of color to your space, try incorporating a little orange decor. The color is associated with warmth, joy, and creativity. It also pairs well with rustic colors and patinas. Because orange is bright and cheerful, it makes a great accent color.

Sometimes just one inspiration piece can spur on the desire for more orange. While antique shopping one day, I came across a set of vintage orange shutters. They were the perfect size to fit our cabin bathroom window. At first, I thought I would be painting them. I tend to go more neutral with window treatments. However, that orange shade really grew on me. It was so cheerful looking. Because of that, I added an orange cabinet and some flowers to our bathroom to brighten the whole room up.
I’ll show you a variety of examples, with different color schemes, all incorporating some orange.

Paint An Orange Accent Wall
For an earthier look, using orange, go with more of a burnt orange color. Although painting a whole room in burnt orange may be overwhelming, an accent wall is just right. To go more subtle, install a thin brick wall using orange bricks. Not only would you get the color but you would also have a nice rustic texture. Then tie in some throw pillows and pottery to complete the whole look. Again, you see that orange is paired with blue. However, this time the shades are warmer.
