Orange is lively and powerful colour that can overpower a room if used in the wrong way. This home office is a great example of how to get orange just right and it works because the orange shades have been used as accent colours to the rest of the scheme. If the whole wall or even the desk had been orange then this home office space would feel crowded and too intense, but by splashing orange into the room via key accessories the scheme feels lively and fresh but not tiring. When opting for a colour match look such as this, it’s important to mix up the textures of your pieces as well as varying the shade of the hue. Here we see how the art work is distressed and weathered, which sits well against the glossy finish of the anglepoise lamp. This juxtaposition brings visual and textural interest to the scheme while also heightening the impact of the different orange accent shades. Do you have any orange in your home? How do you use colour in your home office?
