    Orange can be an extremely difficult color and slight variations can make the difference between awesome and awful. The amount of sunlight in the room and the temperature of your indoor lights will also make a difference. This orange actually hedges towards red and brown. It looks a bit dark on a small swatch; however, when it was applied to a large surface, it felt much brighter. Don't go too brown or it will start looking like poop. Don't go too bright or it will feel like Halloween 24/7. Good luck and remember, it is only paint, so if it's not working, don't suffer with it, repaint!

    April, thanks. Do you know the name of the orange? I am collecting orange ideas.

    I painted my daughter's room one wall plus the inside of her closet BM Orange Blossom and it looks great, with the other walls white dove and the carpet a basic gray. Now I'm interested in painting my dining room, perhaps, part orange. On the chip I love BM's Williamsburg collection's Hale Orange CW 295. Maybe Hale Orange above the chair rail and something more neutral under, like a lighter gray. Wouldn't want it to look like a rugby shirt, though.
