Here’s an inviting orange color to use for anyone who likes the shimmering brilliance of a tropical sun.

Orange was used full force in this 1960s living room, where color spotlighted the fireplace and set off the accessories above the mantel.

There was no monotony in this one-color scheme, because of the variety of textures in the upholstery of the chairs and sofa, in the drapery fabric and Venetian blinds.

This hot orange living room’s color blended beautifully with the neutrals in the room — the soft-toned carpeting, the wood table, and the fireplace marble.

If you’re a sun worshiper, you’ll want to bring the oranges of the sun into your home with a quick coat of paint, by reupholstering a chair, or by adding some accessories in “hot news” hot orange.
