Have You Ever Painted a Room Orange?

I once painted my office a color called Tequila Sunrise, and the vibrant cantaloupe shade really made me productive (or at least, I think it did). While orange is a tricky color to get right, it can look fantastic in the right space.

I painted my dining room a wonderful orange!! The trim was bright white. I LOVED it but I was teased by my family for a very long time. My living room was peach and my bedroom was royal blue!!!! The colors made me happy and I loved being at home. Unfortunately, I had to sell my condo and move into an apartment with white walls!! At first I felt like crying but now I'm used to it. I have colorful fabrics to kind of make up for the lack of wall color. If I ever get another house, I'm heading straight for the paint store and getting orange for one of the rooms, pronto!!

I haven't painted a room orange, but I believe that'll be a vibrant color.

No, I would look awful in that room. I pick room colors that compliment my skin tone. :)

I haven't, but I would. There was a bathroom at my college that was covered in one inch glass tiles that were a perfect tangerine color. Overwhelming, but refreshing and energizing. There was another bathroom that was covered in tomato red tiles that was just as fab!

No, but I've always wanted an orange guest bathroom.

I had always thought about painting my room Lime Green ... but I'm now in the process of picking colors like Spiced Apple, Pumpkin, and Rusty Orange. I'm a complete convert to the color.
