This time of year, orange is everywhere. We see it outside in the swirling leaves and in the pumpkins on our doorstep. When we bring orange inside, it offers a beautiful punch of color in any room. Bright orange accents add energy, while lighter shades of orange can add contrast but still keep things calm.
At In Its Place Kids, we’re always looking for storage and organizational products that are both functional and stylish. If you want to incorporate orange into your kids’ spaces, add some of these fun pieces into the mix:
Mini Locker / P’kolino Book Buggee / Boon Stuffed Animal Bag / 3 Sprouts Storage Bin / P’kolino Clothes Tree / Stegosaurus Bookend / Nested Wooden Storage Crates / Skip Hop Bath Toy Organizer / Round Custom Storage Ottoman
1. As an accent, orange will not stand out as much when used with colors that are adjacent to it on the color wheel (red and yellow). Orange works with these colors to warm up and energize a room.
2. When orange is used with complementary colors (those that are opposite to it on the color wheel), it packs more visual punch.
Bright orange, paired with bright green, adds vitality, energy and a sense of fun to this kids’ play space.
In the rooms below, your eye goes immediately to the orange accents. Orange used in lighter and more muted tones adds contrast and interest to these nurseries, but still keeps things calm and restful for their tiny residents.
