Best color of curtains go for orange walls

Enhance your home’s bold walls with these interesting curtain combinations for orange walls.

The phrase “orange is the new black” proves how special this colour is, which is often associated with happiness and joy. After yellow, if there’s any colour that can put a smile on your face, it’s orange. But admittedly, it’s not commonly seen in home interiors. Orange walls are not popular, but it’s inimitable. The charm of this fruity shade is in its vividness and glow — the same feature can get challenging when you plan to paint your walls orange. So here are some designer-approved tips to pick the right curtain colour for your orange wall.

In interior decoration, the cheerful orange colour is usually used in moderation. While bright orange shades can feel extravagant and warm, light orange shades look tender, romantic and sophisticated. And when you match these intriguing oranges with contrast curtains, your space brings excitement into your home interiors. Whether it’s blue and orange, white and orange or green and orange — it’s the compatibility of the colours that adds to the overall look. Here are some pictures that show you how to get it right with curtain colours for your orange walls.

Ethereal White Curtains For Bright Orange Walls

Whether you plan to embellish your living room or bedroom — the combination of white curtains for orange walls gives the space a royal and spacious look. It’s also a good match for those who want to play it safe. If you’re willing to experiment a little, you can go for white curtains with a trendy print.

Grey Is A Safe And Subtle Curtain Combination For Orange Walls

Complementing grey curtains with orange walls requires some amount of research. Colours that belong to the same family as orange like brown and beige, yellow and red can be combined with dark and light orange walls. Ensure that the intensity of the orange shade does not affect the ambience of your room. To avoid any mistakes here, go one shade lighter or darker when pairing the walls with your curtains. For example, pair a grey or pale grey curtain with a bold orange or even white as these hues will easily blend with the overall colour scheme.
