Burnt Orange

Shades of burnt orange like our warm Bjorn or terracotta Lisbet introduce a harmonising depth to living rooms and bedrooms. The Perfect Paintpals for many other interior colours, burnt oranges contrast wonderfully with navy blues, teals, dark greens, soft neutrals and blacks.

Burnt oranges are the ideal starting point when experimenting with colour due to their muted tones. But if painting whole walls is a bit too much for you, get creative and try colour blocking ideas like half and half wall. Paint the lower half of your wall in your burnt orange shade and opt for a neutral shade like Pixie or Emilia for the top half and ceiling. This complimentary colour palette will give a cosy feeling to your room that invites you in to kick off your shoes, sit back and relax.

Red-toned Orange

The perfect shade for brightening up woodwork, doors and furniture, our fiery and exuberant Reggie adds a unique touch to any space. Especially exciting in kitchens and dining rooms, vibrant red-oranges create inspiring and fun environments that the entire family can enjoy.

Feeling brave? Create a striking feature wall in your living or dining room with Reggie and add in splashes of our best-selling pink Bea, fresh Freddie or sky-blue Hudson for a modern feel. For your other walls and woodwork, opt for an extreme contrast with our inky Anders or serene green Sienna. There really is no limit to your creativity!

Coral Orange

If boho vibes are your style, opt for our coral-orange Dylan. Evoke the feeling of a rustic retreat and style Dylan with natural wood furniture, rattan textures and soft furnishings in animal prints and berber fabrics. Coral-oranges love to cosy up to pale neutrals like Eddie or Chloe, who both add a soft and stylish touch to any space. Add in more visual interest with gold home accessories, such as a gold mirror, quirky lighting and large pots with grassy green palm trees.

Yellow-toned Orange

Slightly yellow and slightly orange, our Leif is an extraverted character who instantly brightens the darkest of spaces. A welcoming shade with a sunny smile, Leif transforms hallways, kid’s bedrooms and kitchens with her cheerful spirit.

Enhance Leif’s vibrant features with stripped back, industrial features in natural wood, exposed brick and metal accents. Let the walls do the talking and opt for simple but modern soft furnishings in white and off-white shades. Our staple shades like gravel-grey Alfie and velvety black Cole add drama and sophisticated to this playful paint colour.
