How to use burnt orange in your home

It’s true that burnt orange is a strong shade, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a place of honor in your home. Below are some easy ways to incorporate this shade into your home without it feeling too overwhelming.

  • Paint: Using a burnt orange paint color is the boldest choice of them all. Whether you’re doing all four walls or just one accent wall, be sure to include plenty of contrast — especially with neutral shades — throughout the room.
  • Furniture: When incorporating the shade into the room through furniture, one piece is usually enough. Allow it to become the focal point of the space. In this case, you’ll want to balance out the look by also including the color in the room’s accessories.
  • Accessories: If you only want the shade to stick around for the fall, consider using it in small doses throughout the space via your accessories. Think about using the shade in your throw pillows, blankets, rugs, wall art and decor. Here, you’ll want to repeat the shade in multiple applications throughout the room in order to tie the look together.
