A selection of orange dishes that can be used brighten any kitchen or dining room.

Gone are the days of drab and boring colors in our kitchens. We can now add some real color to our tables and counter tops with bold items like orange dishes.

Decorating Your Kitchen With The Bold Warm Color Orange

you can start with dishes in orange

Orange has become a very trendy color to use to decorate our homes and the kitchen need not be an exception when using this warm and bold color. Having orange dishes on the table and counter tops in our kitchen can add a really fun statement in our decor. 

You can go with solid orange or a fun combination pattern with different colors when choosing orange dinnerware and tableware to enhance your color scheme in your kitchen.

You can choose from the traditional round dishes or some fun and funky square shaped dishes. The choice is up to you.

What will using the color orange in your kitchen translate to?

Using the color orange in your decor combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow to any kitchen theme. So choosing orange dishes for your kitchen or dining room will give your family and guests a good feeling before they even taste your meal. 

Speaking of your meal, orange will stimulate your family's appetite. We often associate the color orange with healthy foods so there is yet another benefit to having the color in our kitchens.

By increasing oxygen levels in the brain, orange can stimulate our mental activity. This might lead to more interesting conversations at the breakfast and dinner table.

Since orange is very much a color of the autumn season it can also bring thoughts of the changing season with crisp fall days and orange leaves.

Mother nature uses the color orange in her beautiful sunsets. She gives us fruits in orange such as pumpkins, oranges, peaches, and tangerines.

Color Suggestions To Go With Your Orange Dishes

Are you wondering about some accent colors to use with your orange dishes? What color to paint your walls? What colors are going to work with orange?

You can certainly go simple and just do Orange and a shade of white but there are so many other colors to use as accents or complimentary colors such as:

  • turquoise
  • lime green
  • yellows
  • reds
  • shades of blue (cobalt is really cool!)
  • lavenders and purples (think of a lovely sunset)
  • hot pink (think psychedelic 60s themes)
  • other shades of orange
  • neutral colors like taupe or even brown 

A Couple of Orange Quotes

Kandinsky once said, "Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow."

Frank Sinatra has been quoted as saying, "Orange is the happiest color."

Orange is all the rage this season in fashion, I love it in dishes. What a great pop of color.

I think orange in a kitchen is great. Our kitchen in the home we are getting ready to move into has rusty orange walls. Maybe I should look into some orange dishes to match?!
