What Houzz contributors are saying:
If you told me you wanted to decorate your room in orange and green, I would have said you were out of your mind. But here’s proof that even such seemingly incompatible colors can work together. It helps that the wallpaper and carpet are dappled with white, which acts as a bridge between the two hues.
You don't need blue to create a tropical design aesthetic. Use festive colors from the outdoors, like these greens and a floral print. The bold orange chair reminds me of a slice of mango. Again, notice that bright orange works well paired with green and toned down with neutral colors.
21. Boston Home Goes Ironic TraditionalThis home's early 20th-century architecture looks traditional but has been injected with a fresh take on preppy style. From the outside it's hard to believe that rooms full of oversize plaids, bold orange upholstery, zebra rugs and chevron armchairs live inside this shingle-style home.
The designer removed most of the pink punches and added a color that she felt best represented her spirited daughter — orange, and lots of it — with "dabs of magenta" and an animal print rug on the floor that tickles the feet and eyes with its zany design.
