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.

Vibrant Orange Sitting Room

Two orange-tufted, high-back chairs sit against a window with white drapes. A blue throw is on the seat of one chair and a blue floral pillow is on the other chair. A small, white table is positioned between the chairs and used to display a lovely bouquet of orange tulips.

Twin Orange Midcentury Armchairs

A pair of orange, midcentury armchairs give cozy meaning to what could be an overlooked bit of wall. Whimsy comes from an oversized painting of a dog.

Warm Orange Dining Room

This transitional orange dining room is a celebration of autumn. The dining table provides a simple yet sophisticated place to entertain next to the fire.

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. Colorful bird photos decorate the spirited orange walls. The bright wall color is illuminated with a mixture of lighting including a crystal chandelier hanging above the glass top dining table. Orange seat cushions on the chairs compliment the wall color while the wood chair frames matches the traditional wood buffet fitted perfectly into the wall nook.

Orange Home Office

Orange, orange everywhere and not a bit of beige in sight in this home office. Five desks have been painted orange, sawed in half and mounted to a wall in the same shade of orange. They serve as work space and shelves, and they maximize a small space.

Orange Contemporary Baby Nursery

Orange, brown and turquoise make for a whimsical modern nursery. Plenty of natural light washes the bright walls and a simple yet elegant rocker and crib.
