Orange is hot. Flip through any interior design magazine and you’ll find this bold color adding a pop of energy to casual and formal spaces alike.

Orange is no longer feared. Even people raised on beige and off-white are now embracing orange for its ability to convey warmth and whimsy.

When used properly, which generally means sporadically, orange is the perfect accent color to make an otherwise staid space come alive.

Surprisingly, orange is now even welcome in rooms that were once considered off limits, like bedrooms and dining rooms. Many designers argue that warm tones of orange in the bedroom can actually improve sleep quality.
