If you've followed me over the years, then you know that orange is pretty much my favorite color and shockingly, pops up on occasion in some of our design projects. We love the bold and dramatic statement it makes and see it as a color that stands strong throughout the year, and not just for Fall.
So we were thrilled when the folks at Chairish the leading marketplace for beautiful vintage and used furniture and home decor, asked us to share a post on color pairings we love. The request falls in line with their recent post on Color Couples, along with a great infographic they created to help readers experiment with the pairing of bold color combos.
We loved the concept of course and decided to pair Orange (beloved for its energetic and happy vibe), with Teal (beloved for it's calming influence).
|The living room is a great place to fully embrace the dramatic influence of these two colors via this orange patterned wall, teal pattered ottoman and patterned pillows that infuse both color combos. |
If you're still apprehensive about using orange in your home, then this foyer should change your mind. The dark brown wallpaper and white frames, help to soothe the brightness of the orange matted artwork. The teal ottomans stand regal with their Greek key trim, tucked below a white foyer table which also serves as a moment of pause between the two contrasting colors.
Below are some great selections from Chairish that will help on your journey to trying this pairing.
