From simple to bold, orange paired with blue can add a fun and contemporary twist to any room.
If you have a bit of stage fright when it comes to committing an entire wall to a blue hue, consider breaking up the wall space with bead board. In the living room below, the crisp white cottage feel keeps the space low-key while pumping up the fun with splashes of blue and orange.
For a more glamorous feel, consider a slightly deeper shade of orange for the walls with hints of blue sprinkled throughout. This dining room is an excellent example of combining contemporary and traditional sparks of orange and blue.
And don’t forget the kiddos! An orange and blue combo works well for any nursery or little one’s room.
