Decorating With Warm Colors

Last week, we talked about decorating with cool colors as part of my series for Color Theory month. This week, we'll heat things up with a discussion of warm colors.

Warm colors, such as red, orange, and yellow, are associated with stimulation, appetite, and warmth. These hues give a room a feeling of closeness, since the colors appear to come forward. They're great to use for establishing a cozy mood in a room.

What warm colors have you used in your home?

Our upstairs bathroom is huge, and the color the previous owner had on the wall was nothing short of awful. We ended up doing almost a "maize" color on the walls with white trim. The floor is a cream and beige tile and we accent with chocolate brown and ice blue. But it could be accented with shades of green, or red and gold... it's very versitle and... It's pretty.

Orange drapes in the family room and kitchen. Brown walls in the kitchen. Yellow in our bedroom.
