How to Use Orange

When you use orange in your homes, whether in the interiors or the exteriors, there is nothing subtle about it. Orange stands out and calls attention to itself. It’s a warm color, and depending on the intensity of the hue, it could be hot, hot, hot, or wonderfully warm like a long, comfortable hug from a loved one.

Orange is undeniable in the sense that it evokes a strong emotion. You could say orange is a love or hate color depending on the shade. But there are ways to make the color easy on the eye, and more acceptable to people. First is choose your shade wisely. Second, use the color sparingly, like painting it on accent walls, or using it on accessories.
