Orange and blue are showing up in design as a popular and modern color scheme. Orange and blue are complementary colors and make a great pair. The warm and vibrant tones of orange contrast well with the cool and calming tones of blue. Orange is a very popular color in design, fashion, and art; by pairing it with calming blue, you bring balance to the space, giving a warm and cool vibe.
Orange and blue can create different aesthetics depending on the shades and hues of the two colors that you pair together. Orange comes in softer tones like peach, sandstone, and rust. When paired with soft blue colors like sky blue, coneflower blue, or tiffany blue, the color combination makes the space feel both warm and soothing at the same time. You can create a homey inviting atmosphere using softer more muted tones of each color.
Styling Your Blue And Orange Rug
A blue and orange area rug in traditional oriental patterns gives a classic feel but still creates energy and adds vibrancy to the space. Or, choose a vintage style blue and orange rug in faded tones to your modern or farmhouse style living room.
A blue and orange rug in muted tones can be a good fit in an earthy entryway with a bohemian style. Blue and orange together look natural yet vibrant. Add some vivid art to the walls, a natural wood bench or cabinet near the door and top it off with an indoor plant.
On the flip side, blue and orange can be very vibrant and energetic tones. Bright oranges like tangerine, tiger and fire orange to add a punch of color and a playful spirit to a room. Bright blues like navy, teal, and electric blue can cool things off without being boring in the slightest. A radiant blue and orange striped rug can be the perfect addition to kids bedroom.
An orange and blue outdoor rug in your outdoor entertaining space gives a playful and energetic feel. For a more natural feel, stick to oranges that are more organic like rust, sandstone, and gold tones. Pair with pastel blues to give a nod to beautiful sunsets.
Runner rugs are long narrow rugs that are typically 2-3 feet wide but come in different lengths. Runners are a great design accessory for kitchens, bathrooms and hallways. They help to reduce noise and can even help prevent slipping on hard flooring. A rich blue and orange modern runner in your hallway can add pizzazz and brighten the space. A soft blue and orange vintage or traditional runner can help to neutralize a busy hallway area.
Runners also work well in bedrooms. Place one alongside the bedside--or add two for a more cohesive look. We recommend a cozy, high pile shag rug in the bedroom to give a soft place for your toes to land each morning.
Blue and orange rugs are the perfect combo for any style. To find your perfect orange and blue rug, sort by style, size, material and more!
