Love to decorate with bright hues? Yellow and orange are without a doubt the happiest and most refreshing colours to use for your home decor. They emulate glowing sunshine, pretty spring flowers and refreshing citrus fruits to open up any room and make it look instantly cheerier, brighter and more welcoming, even when you may not get ample natural light in the room.

However, orange and yellow are best used as accent colours, since using too much of such a bright hue in a small space can quickly overwhelm the entire décor. Here, we give you 6 ideas on how to decorate with orange and yellow to add some bold, warm colour to your own home.
 
Idea #1:

Yellows and oranges are attention-grabbing hues that are best reserved for elements in a room that you want to stand out. For example, a piece of statement furniture in yellow paint or orange upholstery is an excellent choice, especially when the rest of the room is done in neutral tones. 
 
Idea #2: 
In classical interiors, yellow is most often combined with white. Similarly, orange also looks fresh and clean when combined with white, thought cream, beige and stone are other excellent neutrals to pair with orange or yellow alike. This trick also makes a space look larger, especially when the wooden furniture used for the room is in oak and chestnut colours. Add bright accessories in gentle blue, lilac, green, burgundy and brown.
 
Idea #3:

All shades of yellow and lighter shades of orange look great when paired with chocolate. This combination gives contrast and warmth, therefore, is perfect for the interiors of the dark rooms that are situated on the North.
 
Idea #4:

You can make your interiors look very calm with the combination of soft yellow with soft shades of grey. This creates an instant modern look for your decor, as these are unexpected colours to pair together. In fact, a pattern with pastel orange and grey looks fabulous for sofa upholstery, curtains, rugs and even in wallpaper designs for the accent wall. 
 
Idea #5:

Orange and yellow do not have to be the main colour in a room to have any impact. A guest bedroom, with conventional grey and browns in the linen and flooring, will come alive with the addition of an orange or yellow rug or throw. Use the same tone with your lamp shades and pillow covers. Detailing, like this, also works for occasional chairs if you reflect the hue with some artwork, for instance.
 
Idea #6:

Don’t just use orange and yellow as accent colours. They can also be used alongside reds, greens and blues, especially if you love bold colourful decor. And – they can even be used together! Try a light colour orange wall against a yellow ceiling, for instance. Mid-orange walls against a burnt red ceiling will also coordinate. Complete the look with some complimenting upholstery for your furniture. A pretty mix of a bright yellow accent wall alongside a teal blue wall with the other two walls and ceiling done in white or cream looks very fresh and contemporary.
