Subtle and sultry or fresh and vibrant, see why this cool color is heating up home design. Eric Lysdahl's home is full of shades of orange, which beautifully mix with all the other colors in his home.
- Lysdahl doesn't think of orange as a difficult color to use, it's just that people aren't used to using it. Orange has a lot of strength, so he suggests using it sparingly if you tend to be a little afraid of color.
- The use of orange depends on the context of the room. If it's a very contemporary space, mix orange with lime green or cobalt blue for a lot of contrast. If the room is traditional, mix it with shades of brown, tan and gold since these colors are going to mute it.
