True to its name, orange in all its incarnations has a Vitamin C effect on home decorating. It refreshes and revitalizes. Whether it’s a rusty burnished tone or a cleaner tangerine, orange infuses any room’s design with energy.
When coupled with crisp white and dove gray, a bright orange looks fresh and modern, as in this ballroom designed by Kelley Proxmire. The orange-and-gray chinoiserie fabric adds humor among the graphic tangerine patterns that cover the club chair and sofa pillow.
