Orange color in the interior can frighten with its saturation and activity. But if you get to know it better, it becomes clear that this sunny paint has a place in any room and in many styles. Today we will tell you what shades of red to pay attention to, how to use them in the interior of different rooms and what to combine using the example of photos of real projects.
Gave tips for using bright colors
The activity and perception of orange depends on the direction in which the undertone is moved: towards yellow or towards red. The closer the red, the richer and more aggressive the color. The proximity of yellow gives a feeling of comfort and sunshine, creates the illusion of a rise in temperature in the room. But citrus fruits do not need to be bright and concentrated – there are almost pastel variations that do not have an active effect on the psyche. There are many nuances that deserve attention.
Black and white
Without further ado, both achro mats can be successfully combined with anything. Auburn adds warmth and energy to an understated monochrome palette and immediately brings the interior to life. Or black and white can balance out the palette created with active paint.
Citrus can coexist with any pastel shades, but in this case it is better if the shade is also muted, diluted with white or beige. By reducing the brightness, you will achieve a harmonious and equal color combination in the interior with orange.
In the hall, the redhead will create a sense of coziness and tune into sincere conversations with loved ones. To prevent the room from turning into a huge orange, it is better to use the accent color: for furniture or decoration. A popular technique is a living room in nude tones with only one bright element. It can be a pouf, an armchair or a sofa.
In a citrus kitchen, you have to be careful. Redhead significantly increases appetite, and a room in such warm colors seems warmer – this should be taken into account when decorating the cooking area.
How to use it so as not to overdo it?
In decoration and accessories.
In textiles – for example, choose a ginger tablecloth or curtains.
As an accent – chairs, household appliances, part of the wall.
Take dark or diluted highlights to finish if the kitchen is dark and uncomfortable.
In the recreation area, it is better to abandon the rich shades of fruits and vegetables in favor of calmer variations. The atmosphere of the bedroom will be created by darkened deep tones: terracotta, amber, ocher, copper. Chocolate, dark blue, emerald and gray will go well with them.
Children’s design should be cheerful, so that the child is always in a good mood and at the same time quite calm, suitable for the psyche of an excitable child. In the room for a baby, redhead is best used as a local bright accent or as part of the decoration – in this shade, for example, a pattern can be made on the wallpaper.
In a non-residential area without natural light, you can safely experiment. On the one hand we come here often, on the other we don’t stay too long. Interior and exterior finish, decoration, accent elements – any option will do. By the way, it is in the bathroom that you can choose a juicy carrot or orange tone.
The ginger range will revive the entrance area, which, like the bathroom, in most cases suffers from the lack of windows. A win-win reception – 1-2 colored spots on a generally calm background. It can be a pouf, a painting or a hanger.
If you choose a dark orange shade for the finish of the hallway, think about the lighting scheme in advance so that the color looks good and reveals itself, and does not look dirty and rusty.
