You only have to watch the leaves on trees start to turn beautiful shades of yellow, red and burnt orange to know that winter is on its way. If you’re looking for one of the latest interior design colours then burnt orange maybe the colour you need to add a new look which is rich and warming and forecast to be a big hit within interior design this season.
Many fabric and wallpaper designs are displaying burnt orange this season as the accent colour, while the more courageous are using burnt orange to coordinate with reds, charcoal and rich mahogany to bring a natural warmth to homes. So that you don’t cause a garish and gaudy look it’s wise to use burnt orange as your accent colour rather than on all four walls.
Burnt orange in the living room:
Use burnt orange for your soft furnishings and accessories. Simple touches of this beautiful colour can be used for cushions, throws, rugs and curtains. Use a complimentary main colour such as mink or cream for walls and flooring.
Burnt orange in the bedroom:
As this colour is naturally warming it can be used on double duvet covers or super king bedding to give you the feeling of warmth and cosiness. If you’re not a great fan of this colour but like to be on trend simple accents such as a bedding blanket or stylish bed-runner can be used to introduce the colour subtly into your bedroom. Coordinate with bedside rugs and lampshades to bring the colours together. For a bold contemporary look try using a burnt orange and black colour scheme if you have a large bedroom or a softer plum and burnt orange if you dare to be different! Blackout curtains in burnt orange will not only make you feel warmer they can also help to reduce heat loss through windows and prevent any unwanted light entering the room, which means you can stay under the duvet a little longer!
Burnt orange in the dining room:
As burnt orange coordinates so easily with rich mahogany it’s the ideal colour choice if you have a mahogany dining room suite. Change chair covers for fabrics with a burnt orange pattern and use the same fabric to make full length curtains to bring balance to the room.
Burnt orange in the kitchen:
This colour is a great way to brighten a dull kitchen. Combined with red, which is a known appetite enhancer, your family can tuck into hearty winter stews and soups and feel warmed on the inside and in their surroundings.
Introducing this colour with use of accessories is a great way to bring your rooms up-to-date. Start gradually until you feel at ease with burnt orange and then go bolder or not as the case maybe. Autumn/winter accessories should feel homely and warming.
