Burnt Orange: The Hottest Colour For Your Home This Summer

Whether you’re working with a muted minimalistic palette or opting for deeper, darker tones, burnt orange can be used to add a glowing warmth. Because it has a natural tone, burnt orange manages to be somehow bold and subtle all at the same time. And it works exceptionally well as an accent colour within a room too! Think terracotta ceramics, burnt orange lampshades or even a velvet sofa to create a colour sensation that never threatens to overpower a design.

To help you get the look within your own home, I’ve created a few product boards to get you inspired! Whether you’re looking to add some burnt orange to your walls and floors or within your furniture and accessories, I’ve got you covered.

What are your thoughts about burnt orange? Personally, I’m not a huge fan of orange, but I think burnt orange is a very contemporary shade. If you are a bit scared of using burnt orange in your home, consider pairing it with navy blue or soft neutrals for a calmer feel.

    I always thought of burnt orange as a fall color, I don’t know why I never thought to use such a bright fun color in the summer. Thanks for your insight! 🙂

    Orange is definitely not my colour but for some reason I’m really drawn to the table from Made?! I love that you’ve thrown in some simple accessories for people who’d prefer a little pop of colour x

    Orange always makes me think of Autumn and Halloween! It’s not a colour I would think of going for usually, but this has definitely made me think of the possibilities! I love light orange colours on my nails at this time of the year, a lovely pastel orange is gorgeous 🙂

    I have often wanted to incorporate warm colours into my room’s interiors but I don’t like the idea of a whole wall with a warm colour. However I love your idea of using small details in burnt orange to give it a nice artsy vibe.

    I really like orange, I love how it so bold and eye catching. I actually think the sofa would work really well in my lounge as I have a green feature wall. Thanks for the inspiration, I love your selection Eve! 💖 xx

  7. I don’t think too much on the trends of colours for furniture on a whole. I think I notice themes more. But man, that was a lot of burnt orange! I like the furniture #2 and #5 picks – pouffes are so cute.

    I honestly never would have thought of using this color around the house but you’ve definitely inspired me to! Great post! xx


  9. Nice!!! I love organe so this is right up my alley!!!
