Welcome to the next post spring color blog series! If you read our last post we invoked the warmth of a bright yellow Caribbean sun. In this post, we’re still in the warm color family, but channeling a beautiful island sunset after a day on the water with orange decor ideas. Bringing orange into your design will instantly warm up a room and add energy to a space. Read on to see some simple was to add this citrusy hue into your decor.

Any outdoor space is perfect for orange. Adding accent pillows and colorful lantern lighting warms everything up on a cool evening.
Orange can be modern, too. With sleek white furniture, it becomes the perfect place to relax while enjoying a stunning Caribbean blue view.
For a more traditional look, an orange patterned rug sets the stage for enjoying a cool glass of something on the porch. Add seat cushions, accent pillows and warm light from orange carriage lanterns and you’ll have a hard time sending people home.
If a lot of orange is too bold for your taste, adding in a pillow here or there livens things up without being overwhelming. Even better news: orange is the perfect complementary color to all of the blues used in a lot of island homes.
Ready to get funky? A vintage wallpaper with orange tones can really make for an interesting powder room!
Orange works well with neutrals like white and grey, too. An orange mirror or detail on a roman shade break up a monochromatic bathroom or foyer.
The kitchen is another perfect place for orange to be the star of the show. Orange lighting is a simple way to add color to a room that is used a lot. Too much orange in a space like this could become cartoonish.
Tile is another way to add orange to a space that could use color but not drama. A patterned tile with neutral undertones is best for kitchens that have a lot of light but need somewhere for the eye to go.
A den or kids’ bunk room is begging for pops of playful orange. Neutrals + orange accents is a great way to keep a space interesting for kids but not have the room become overrun with characters or comic book-esque items.
