This nursery is full of energy from touches of orange against a neutral taupe backdrop to layered patterns and child-friendly greenery. The addition of a painted zigzag pattern to the ceiling gives the baby something stimulating to look at while lying down in the crib.
An orange accent wall creates a warm background for the Asian bed side table with distressed edges and ribbed top. A statue and framed photos match the Asian theme below a simple swiveling sconce. A tall upholstered headboard turns its edge for a cozy, enclosed feel to the head of the bed.
Because they're already plumbed, bathrooms can be a great place to tuck in a washer and dryer. Natalie Sheedy of Natalie Sheedy Interiors took advantage of this long, narrow space, installing appliances at one end and screening them off with a pretty curtain. Extending the deep orange paint color into the laundry area makes it feel of a piece with the rest of the room.
Color works well when it’s just around the fireplace, too. Designer Maria Killam, CMG, used bright orange paint around and over the fireplace here, for a bold look you can easily replicate with any favorite hue.

Interior designer Cheryl Settino Mosher layered on print after print for her eclectic, global-inspired study in the 2017 Holiday House NYC. The ceiling is tented with the Lush Scene pattern from Robert Allen's Nomadic Color fabric collection, and the Miles sofa also is from Robert Allen. The orange painted trim is “Bittersweet Vine” from Benjamin Moore's Century line.
Nothing breathes new life into a worn, outdated kitchen better than freshly painted kitchen cabinets. Once you decide on the color, finish and type of paint you want, the sky really is the limit on the look you can achieve. This distinctive kitchen gets adventurous with its use of orange and matte gray cabinets that coordinate nicely with the brown tile backsplash, hardwood floors and a daring gold pendant lamp.
The beautiful dark marble in this modern bathroom is complemented by a brilliant, dark orange paint color. A tile accent strip ties the colors together.

Orange, orange everywhere and not a bit of beige in sight in this home office. Five desks have been painted orange, sawed in half and mounted to a wall in the same shade of orange. They serve as work space and shelves, and they maximize a small space.
