What is orange?
Any combination of red and yellow can turn into a bright coral, or delicate salmon, or juicy tangerine shade.
Orange is an expressive color associated with warmth and comfort. Therefore, it is ideal for both interior and exterior walls. However, you should not choose too bright shades and paint most of the room with them - the “coziness” characteristic of orange can be a little depressing if you overdo it. The main thing when working with orange is to choose the right tone and the purpose of its use. On the left is the earthen-colored living room. Terracotta walls invite us closer to the fireplace to sit back and relax.
The picture on the right perfectly illustrates how an ordinary conference room turns into a welcoming, open place where you can discuss all the things of your concern with colleagues and partners.
Just like yellow, orange helps us understand the dynamics of a room. In the room on the left, the function of orange is to show the border between the public area (white or gray) and the private space (orange). On the right - add warm shades to a room painted with neutral colors.
The blush of real life
There is such a special place on the color wheel where orange stands very close to red. This is where the peach, pink and coral hues start to overlap. It is these colors that are best combined with cool neutrals. For example, with icy gray, as in the picture on the left, or with clay shades, on the right. Such combinations look just magical!
