Pumpkin Orange A Color for All Seasons

Updated on November 15, 2012

Designing with Pumpkin Colors

The rich warm orange color of Pumpkin is reminiscent of sunrises, sunsets, and autumn leaves. Spiced-up colors can add a fiery glow to any room, with a palette that is not too bold and yet not too dull.

Pumpkin Orange is energizing like the sun, so it is a good choice in rooms where your energy may need boosting - the kitchen perhaps. In this toned down form, it can also be ideal in a home office; it has an energizing effect, but isn't so bright that you won't be able to stay still at your desk!

      Orange is so cheerful. I only use it sparingly since it can be pretty strong.
