The Color Orange is…
Cheerful and Happy
Commanding and Strong
Cozy and Warm
Where can you use an Orange Color Scheme?
Almost any room can have a varying shade of orange. It depends on the intensity of the color. You will want to choose different shades and hues of orange depending where you are using it.
Orange is a very warm, sunny and cheerful color. Just picture a sunset, or the warm colors of autumn leaves and pumpkins. Envision the warm glow of a fire or candle light. All these things give us a cozy feel and are the essence of warmth. And…If you live in a cold climate, a spicy orange color palette could warm things up and make a great accent color for your home.
