Which interior style is suitable for a burnt orange sofa?


Is burnt orange a nice colour?

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine a home? Maybe peace and warmth? These two concepts always go hand in hand. So, let’s unite them and together make this dream of yours a reality. If we stick to the current interior trends and look for a living room feel, we must emphasize both the furniture and the colours. The colour scheme of warm autumn tones is a great way to create different interior styles. If you are looking for the right style for your interior, the article “What is your interior design style”, will be extremely useful.

Fans of the mid-century style, which is quite popular in most major cities, such as London, are seated on an burnt orange sofa in their living room. Proponents of country living prefer a corner sofa and a stylish coffee table with table lamp. And what would be the living room without a comfortable sofa? Maybe just a room. So, I focused on the burnt orange couch and how to combine it with the rest of the interior.

I can say that at first glance this warm tone is as pretentious as it is easy to combine in different styles. This in turn allows you to use it for furniture as well as for walls or curtains, for example. And here comes the question: What colour goes well with burnt orange? In the following lines I will look in detail at this and other issues related to the different rooms in the home, such as: Is Burnt Orange a good colour for a bedroom? Or: Burnt orange and yellow go together? But first let’s define the basic colours that match perfectly with this colour. 

What are the 3 best colours that go together?

Why exactly three? Not necessarily, of course. Although there are rules in interior design, there are always exceptions. But please be careful. If we consider the creation of small interiors as a complex task, then I can say that this is art. There is one main question that I am asked very often: Is burnt orange and rust are the same colour? The answer is yes and no. The truth is, you can’t explain colour. Colours are subject to perceptions and I would find it difficult to give a specific answer.

I prefer to give an example in combination with other colours, and you decide for yourself whether you like it or not. If you choose a burnt orange sofa with the question will come: What colour paint goes with burnt orange furniture? Royal Blue, dark teal and ivy grey, will be a great choice. This seemingly bold combination will turn your living room into a cosy room. 

What colours go with burnt orange sofa?

One of the most suitable colours for a combination with a burnt orange sofa is navy blue in all its shades. Sky blue would be an appropriate combination with bright orange. If you are wondering between teal or aqua blue, then the combination with dark or burnt orange will be great. If you are looking for a pleasant visual effect to create a memorable interior, then the combination of navy blue and burnt orange would be a great choice. Read more here.

However, I draw your attention to the right combination. First of all, consider the size of the room. If it is small or medium size, the choice of burnt orange accent furniture would be appropriate, but it is good to limit yourself to a burnt orange sofa in this colour and a decorative pillow. Also pay attention to the amount of natural light. If you decide to place a burnt orange sofa near a large window, it’s great.

Natural sunlight will enhance the depth of colour. You could paint one wall near to your burnt orange sofa in dark blue and the others in a much lighter shade of the same blue add wall lights with daylight. Choose parquet, carpet or other light grey flooring. Use furniture with dark and saturated tones, such as burnt orange accent chairs, for example. Choose light walls and floor.


Burnt orange living room furniture

I’m going to share with you some of my favorite orange living room ideas. And since interior design is my biggest passion, I can’t miss showing you some of my favorite living room furniture. Following the trends in burnt orange furniture décor, the stylish couch retains its leading position as the most desired piece of furniture in the living room. As the founder of Urvission Interiors, I select with extreme care all the furniture to meet both the high demands of the client and the latest fashion trends.

Each client’s preferences are different, as are the features of each property. Bespoke furniture is the best solution in this situation and for every connoisseur of stylish, individual interior. The advantage of custom-made furniture is that it is made to a specific size, material and colour. As a creative person who does not like strict frameworks, it is my pleasure to design and furnish interiors that meet even the most sophisticated wishes.

But let’s get back to burnt orange living room furniture. Leather sofas have never gone out of style. They are especially suitable for interiors in modern, contemporary and industrial style. If you choose a burnt orange sofa in leather with steel black legs you will enjoy a great modern interior. Leather upholstery for sofas and armchairs are extremely easy to maintain and will provide you with comfort and a gentle touch. Furniture in this style gives a subtle austerity and accentuated style, especially if they are in dominant colours.

But be careful when choosing upholstery. It could be made of artificial or natural leather. To make sure you make the best choice, study the composition and durability of the coating. There are manufacturers who will intrigue you with a low price, do not be fooled, you will be disappointed. Nowadays we know that packaging sells.

And this is exactly the reason why there are extremely many beautiful furniture on the market, but made of poor quality materials. My advice is: Don’t make this mistake. Do a preliminary study and choose your burnt orange sofa with the perfect ratio between price and quality.

What colour furniture goes with burnt orange walls?

If your home is large enough and you have the opportunity to design it so that you can afford open spaces, such as living rooms and kitchens, you are lucky. In this case, roll up your sleeves, I come up with great ideas! As I mentioned in the above lines, burnt orange can be used in various styles in interior design. Large, open spaces will allow you to create a contrast that will stand out from the rest of the furniture. 

In particular, you could paint one of the walls orange and combine it with a dark blue armchair. Also combine with different colours of the same scheme. If the open living room has a view of the dining room, for example, you could use the same accent by choosing burnt orange dining chairs. In this way you will enjoy absolute balance and harmony without burdening you. And here again I want to pay attention to the amount of daylight. 

For these colours, natural daylight is extremely important. Believe me, they look radically different. It is as if they come to life and radiate warmth.
The rich tones, whether dark or light, would be a great addition to burnt orange sofa and any furniture. You could use them for sofas, paintings, curtains, flooring, carpets and even kitchen cabinets. But remember, if you decide to use these colours on large areas, pay attention to the size of the room.


Burnt orange and brown living room furniture

If you prefer to stick to the traditional and prefer to live in a home with a modern interior, the large burnt orange sofa would be a great addition to your living room. You could pair it with the ever-modern dark brown, such as decorative pillows, a footstool or an armchair. And here you can see the difference in colours. When one colour is placed on different materials, it looks different. In this case, I pay attention to high-quality fabric, which will guarantee you comfort for a long time. This burnt orange sofa would be a great addition to the interior of your office or hotel, for example. 

They would also look great in a city apartment, as well as your cottage, for example. If you combine light cream and brown you would achieve a great unpretentious interior with memorable accents. You can see how many different options this seemingly strong colour has. As an interior designer, I like to play with colours and believe in their energy. You could also use small 2 seater burnt orange sofa as an accent in your kitchen. You will achieve a great accent if you choose ivy grey or light beige for your cabinets and dining table and put burnt orange dining chairs set of 2 as an accent.

Where does Burnt Orange come from?

If you want one of the freshest colours to be present in your interior and be on top of the “orange wave”, then burnt orange sofa or velvet sofa are your right choice. For a rich burnt orange, it is necessary to mix pale cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, with cadmium red and a hint of burnt sienna. Follow this sequence exactly. Otherwise, the colour will not burn orange. Although there are other colours that bring enthusiasm, this shade of orange will make your project design. The exact description of this colour is brighter orange mixed with shades of red. In addition to interior design, it could be used to attract the customer’s eye.

This bright colour would also look great on your company logo, as an accent or base colour for websites. But be moderate, because as I mentioned above, excessive use will have the opposite effect. Тhe human eye perceives burnt orange as something natural, as it is extremely close to the naturally reddish and brown earth colours. With it you would achieve a calming effect for the living room or bedroom. Enjoy life and think colourfully, yours burnt orange sofa awaits you. So the smile will never disappear from your face!
