orange bay window curtains

Find your colour: Orange

Orange is a bright and bold colour associated with excitement and energy, so it may feel daunting to introduce it into your home decor. But at Stitched, we love the warmth it can bring to a room. Whether you choose to add a subtle hint with burnt orange cushions and throws, or go big with bright orange curtains, a lot of interiors will go with an injection of orange so be brave!

Designing with Orange

Warm and cosy, but also energetic and lively, orange is the unsung hero for a fashionable and versatile colour scheme. Pair your orange curtains or blinds with white walls like Farrow & Ball’s Wimbourne White or go bold with lime green, cool blue or black walls. Orange is a great choice for rooms lacking natural light. From easy to live with earthy colours such as Relaxed Linen in Sienna Sunset to brighter shades like Wool in Reef, orange will add a touch of warmth to any scheme.

Stitched Homes: Luke

Luke chose orange curtains for his studio bay window in Flax Sunset. This was the perfect fabric for his maximalist style.

Fashionable in the Art Deco period, orange was often teamed with soft blue or black. But for a lot of homes, this interior combination may be a bit too ‘out-there’! If you have more of a neutral aesthetic, we love how rust coloured accessories look with warm neutral sofas, curtains and rugs. For soft furnishings, go for neutral colours with warm undertones as these paired with rust coloured throws, cushions and even artwork, will create the ultimate cosy feel. Or for an even more subtle approach, go for an orange pinstripe curtain in a neutral interior. This will still warm up the room, but complement a neutral aesthetic beautifully.
