What Houzz contributors are saying:
The easiest way to bring bold orange into your dining room is to pick a hue you like and paint a wall or two. Having trouble selecting the right orange? Pull a shade out of a favorite painting or upholstery fabric. It's likely a color you are drawn to, and it will coordinate well with the decorative item that inspired it.
A brown and orange version — like a sunset against the red faces in Zion National Park or Ayers Rock in Australia — in a contemporary setting. Like other warm colors, red ocher is said to stimulate the appetite, making it perfect for a dining room.
Some call it rust, but I prefer to think of it as terracotta. Like fresh clay walls, the rich color heats up the space. The glow of the floor lamp and pendant lighting also assist in creating a warm, intimate atmosphere.
