Here is a color scheme Orange and how to use it:

A more contemporary choice than strong reds, orange works best when used in moderation – it makes a bold statement on a single wall, chimney breast or stairwell. Confined to an alcove, as shown here, it provides a striking background for a display of accessories. Add to the dramatic effect by partnering with strong geometric or tribal patterns but balance with plain natural materials and textures .

Keep walls and woodwork bright white and use orange sparingly as an accent color.

Paintwooden floorboards a muted, neutral shade or opt for textured natural floorings in earthy colors. Top with bold rugs in browns or black and white geometric designs.

Adddistinctive furniture combinations, teaming pieces upholstered in unbleached linen with more ethnic items.

Complementwith boldly patterned accessories in lively reds or oranges.
Well, color is the most important aspect in interiors. The key to choosing color schemes is to focus on a favorite shade which makes your home looks more beautiful. You may also consult interior design consultancy services for further queries.
