Bold Orange Living Room Features Dark Cabinetry
This living room is perfectly designed to complement the long shape of the home. The orange wall color is echoed by orange curtains on the opposite white wall as well as an orange area rug. Dark cabinetry flush with the wall to provide a dark contrast to the color scheme. A soft gray loveseat is decorated with floral throw pillows complementing the orange details as well as the coffee table plant.

The sleek design of this kitchen pairs dark wood cabinetry with orange walls and bright white countertops. Floor to ceiling storage ensures that the counter space remains clear. A small tile backsplash complements the orange walls. A row of cushioned bar stools are lined below the light countertop. A muddled glass panel adds a unique decoration and texture to the smooth look of the room.

Floating orange shelves in the kitchen compliment the shag orange rug and orange patterned throw pillows in the living room adding bold accent color throughout the space.

Modern, Open Plan Kitchen, Living Room and Dining Room
A partial wall sheathed in calacatta marble forms a dramatic divide in this modern, open plan kitchen, living and dining space. Mid-century Eames dining chairs surround a modern table with a sleek, minimal profile. A dark accent wall in the living room connects to dark kitchen cabinetry, bridging the two spaces. Meanwhile, modern art above the sideboard provides a hit of bold color.
Helen Richardson designed this country living room with bold patterns set against a bright orange couch. Vibrant hues and dark wood furnishings emit visual warmth while pale yellow walls tone down the bold sofa and reflect the softer shades visible in the area rug's floral design. Rustic decorative stars pull in the country feel in a simple and subtle way.
This neutral living room features pops of vibrant orange color, as seen in the sofa pillows and upholstered armchairs. A dark brown accent wall encases the fireplace, while white built-in bookshelves are positioned on either side. A multicolored area rug adds a lively finishing touch.
This custom transitional kitchen features stunning thick-cut quartz countertops and contrasting dark cabinetry. The center island mimics the shape of a piano in the nearby living room. A backsplash is cut from the same quartz as the countertops for a seamless look.
Covered Outdoor Living Room With Dark Wood Exposed Beams, Floral Neutral Slip Cover Sofa and Stone Fireplace
The ceiling over this covered outdoor living room features dark wood exposed beams that create a bold contrast against the light neutral structure. Floral slip covered sofas, a wood book cabinet and stone surrounded fireplace make up one cozy room. The space moves smoothly into another living space closer to the open outdoor wall.
Custom Wood Island Warms Up Neutral Modern Kitchen
A dark-stained wood island features a built-in microwave, loads of storage and a live-edge walnut countertop. White painted cabinetry topped by quartz lines the room’s perimeter, and a gray tile backsplash fits with the neutral kitchen’s modern-industrial vibe.
This traditional living room, in dark shades of orange and yellow, is guaranteed to brighten anyone's day. It features a built-in sofa with storage beneath, a distressed coffee table, small dining area and custom windows with clerestory panel and beautiful oriental rug. White columns add intricate architectural detail.
“I love mixing authentic midcentury pieces with reproductions to make a space feel fresh and not too much like a time capsule,” says designer Aletha VanderMaas. “The bold, blue sectional sofa and matching ottoman complement the orange brick wall, which is an original feature in this midcentury modern home. The vintage end tables that flank the sofa give the room a retro vibe—and were both Craigslist finds for less than $50 each. The assortment of graphic pillows makes the space feel more modern and not stuck in the 1960s. And the reproduction Sputnik light fixture is from Practical Props in Los Angeles, and is certainly the focal piece of the entire living room.”
One of my favorite people and repeat clients came to me with a brimming-with-potential-blank-slate of a room that she wanted to use as her creative work space. We wanted a feature wall inspired by graffiti. After some brainstorming, my client decided that the focal points of the mural would be a singular fist and kente cloth, signifying power, empowerment, and culture.
To set off the mural, we painted the adjacent walls a dark slate gray. Color cues were taken from the mural and carry it’s energy around the room. We worked with Joybird to create a custom, rich, Kelly Green couch to provide her with a space to read and rest. The teal rug compliments the green and blue tones in the mural and brings the color into the center of the space.
This work space demanded lots of creative, attractive storage. We had the pegboard custom built for the space so she has plenty of space to keep her tools within easy reach. The bold orange of the pegboard and the colorful TV stand (located just right of the desk) mirror the movement and energy of the mural without competing with it, creating a sense of color symmetry in the room.
