When you think of the color orange, something very overpowering like construction worker orange or neon orange may come to mind. But you may be surprised to discover today’s take on orange may be just what you’ve been looking for in your Boulder, CO, home décor. To today’s home decorator, “orange” is more of a burnt sienna, a dusty pumpkin or even a sunny, light peach color.
Many of the dusky, deeper brown-orange colors are named things like “fiery” or “mandarin” but have little to do with those designations, so it is important when shopping oranges to look past the name to the depth and personality of the actual color.
It is also important to note that these shadowy versions of orange are at home in nature and pair well with natural shades of browns, greens and taupes. A solid choice for our area, today’s oranges are popular in many homes and the designers at Jacobsen Brothers Painting have been creating some amazing palettes. We would love to help you find just the right take on orange to warm up and refresh your home or office.
Let’s look at the applications of today’s oranges in a room-by-room approach.
You can create an enjoyable living room with a professional application of an orange rum, buttery maple or nectar color. A corgi buckskin or a muted citrus could also provide the warm look you’ve been searching for in this restful space.
In the front hallway, a cheerful—but not overpowering—dusty sunset orange or a very light touch of a citrus orange could transform the space and create quite a favorable first impression for guests. An approachable toffee would also make a good choice in this space.
Welcoming you home after a long day, this warm orange entryway would look great with the accents of colored metals like gold or copper. A copper-edged accent mirror or golden wall sconces would complement your orange color choice.
A cozier approach to orange is just the ticket for your bedroom. Consider using a bronze, clay, burnt umber or deep harvest orange. An accent wall over the head of the bed might be enough of the deeper color, and a dusty neutral could make the rest of the walls complimentary.
If you happily embrace the full furnace of true orange, you could pour it on your kitchen cabinets, undiluted. Electric orange cabinet facings, standing out in a modern white kitchen, has been a popular trend lately. This unforgiving color requires a professional application or every blemish and streak will jump out.
However, if you’re looking for something a little more understated, any of the perky peaches and sandy oranges would make a homey kitchen with a hint of country sun.
