Decorating with Warm Colors

Warm colors will add warmth to any home.  Warm colors are colors like dark red, dark yellow and dark orange.  They add vibrancy and are very eye catching.  In this article, we will take a look at some of these colors and how to decorate your home with them.

Brick Red- Brick red is one of the warmest colors because it mixes red with brown which are both warm colors.  If there is a room in your house that you feel needs warmth, then brick red is the perfect color choice.  Brick red is also a great color for any room in your home that faces north.  Why?  Because rooms that face north get the least amount of sunlight.  So to brighten up that room, you need to add warm colors.  If you are thinking of decorating a living room, a nice Oriental rug will bring warmth to the room.  Most Oriental rugs have brick red coloring in them.  Some rugs have just a hint of brick red while others have brick red colors that totally stand out.  If you like the color red, you can also incorporate brick red with other reds such as maroon or cherry red.  These two colors have more of a blue tint to them than a red tint so the colors look stunning together.  Again, still in the living room, you can add gold upholstery to your couch for the perfect warming touch.  

Daffodil Yellow- If you are a gardener and have a garden full of daffodils then you know how beautiful the rich, warm color is.  Daffodil yellow is the perfect way to bring warmth to any kitchen.  Of course the best way to use daffodil yellow is to use actual daffodil flowers.  A nice bunch in a vase will bring warmth to any kitchen counter or table.  When purchasing dinnerware for your new decorating look, try some white plate sets with daffodils on them or daffodil yellow plate sets.  And don’t forget the matching daffodil yellow linen napkins.  

Tangerine- Tangerine is my favorite color as well as my favorite fruit.  Tangerine is the perfect color in the fall and winter to warm any room in your home.  Tangerine is the perfect color for any room in your home from the bedroom to the living room to the patio.  Even little touches like tangerine colored frames in your bedroom will brighten up your room in an instant.  A tangerine upholstered couch or painting your walls tangerine may be a bit too much so try adding a tangerine upholstered chair in your living room to add color.  

With any of these colors, you can bring warmth and closeness to any room in your home.
