Orange is an energetic colour with the warmth of red and the liveliness of yellow. Because of its reputation of being a dominant colour, it is underutilised in bedrooms. But, if used properly with the right tones, it can really fit seamlessly with other colours. It can be the dominating colour or be a complement shade to other colours like white or cream.

Bask in the warmth of orange
You can create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere with warmer orange tones paired with greys and whites. Use warm grey tones to create a subtle look or cooler undertones for a more contrasting look.

Grey will balance out the orange while white will prevent the bedroom from looking too dull and dark. Contemporary or modern bedrooms can make excellent use of this combination.

A minimalist bedroom can use soft orange tones to add a graceful and elegant aspect to it. As the English father of minimalism John Pawson said, “it is not so much empty as calm”. Pastel shades of orange can also be combined with beige and off whites for a serene environment.

Go bold with orange and blue
Blue is the complement of orange. You can use vibrant orange with a dark blue upholstered bed for a bold look. Use elements like pillows, picture frames, accessories, beddings, curtains etc. to add them with neutrals or white.

Soothe your soul
Coral is another shade of orange which reduces stress. It has a feminine quality to it and a soothing feel. A wooden bed will amplify its tranquil nature.

Level it up with black
Of course, we have to rope in black to add more definition in the bedroom with soft orange. One of the easiest ways to use black to add contrast to the soft or pastel orange interior is through a metal bed.

A low footend bed or a four poster bed, you can go for these and anything in between, depending on whether you want the bed to be a statement piece or a subtle element of your bedroom. This will provide the right amount of contrast and bring out the beauty of orange.
We just can’t forget the spooky season when we are talking about orange & black. A cobweb pattern wallpaper with an orange iron bed is a great option. A moodboard with halloween pieces can take the place of an art piece on the focus wall. For the true halloween spirit, use appropriately themed bedding! Some candle and pumkin decor will round off the look.
