Citrus Surround

Nothing will wake you up in the morning quite like this citrus-inspired breakfast nook. The shade is especially vibrant and playful when paired with modern, white chairs and silver accents. Designer Celia Berliner coordinated oak flooring to serve as a warm complement to the bright walls.

Focal Wall

This creamy white living room was given a modern and playful burst of color, thanks to a lively shade of orange. The fireplace focal wall and artwork deliver just the right amount of color to brighten the surrounding white, gray and black hues of the room. Design by Pangaea

Brighten Up White

To brighten the cream and white surroundings, designer Celia Berliner added a surprising splash of orange to the living room's wraparound countertop. To keep the space balanced, she replicated the hue in the throw pillows, bookshelf accents and flower vases.

Rustic Complement

In this rustic, natural-toned living room, four deep carrot orange armchairs provide a subdued output of color, while still representing the room's subtle color scheme. The welcoming hue can even be seen in the rug's floral accents. Design by Erinn Valencich

Warm Welcoming

Designer Andreas Charalambous used a refined and uniform color palette of creamy off-white and burnt orange on the first floor of this modern home. The deep orange focal wall provides a warm welcoming and extends the hue through various accent pieces.

Masculine Mix

To enhance the pumpkin orange wall, designer Andreas Charalambous added hidden cove lighting behind the headboard and used dark wood furnishings for a warm and dramatic contrast.

Creative Zone

This colorful home office is the perfect space to get the creative juices flowing. The bright orange countertops, chair and sofa provide a bold surge of energy, creating a simple yet inspirational room. Design by Celia Berliner

Bold Accent

The red slate focal wall and walnut floors look warm and inviting when paired with orange barstools. To make a big color impact, the accent hue is kept to a minimum throughout the room. Design by Andreea Avram Rusu

Vibrant Dining

The dark wood dining set and buffet are a sweet complement to pumpkin orange walls in this chic dining room. A gold sunburst mirror echoes the natural tones of the orange walls, while enhancing the overall color scheme. Clear, glass accessories are a neutral accompaniment to the room and avoid interrupting the vibrant wall color. Design by Velvet Hammerschmidt

Warm Retreat

For a bold yet relaxing master bathroom, designer Jane Ellison combined Old World style and dark wood furnishings with a soothing deep orange wall color. The colors and textures of the space immediately emit a feeling of warmth and sophistication.
