The powers that be have dictated that green and orange are going to be the big colors in interior design for the upcoming season. Before I saw evidence to the contrary, I used to think of this color combination as feeling very electric and even a little bit childish.
I have managed to locate some elegant rooms done in a green and orange color scheme, and they are quite compelling. All of these designs share a playful feeling, but they manage to remain adult because of their textural layers and unique accessories. It also helps when the colors are toned down from their brightest hues. For example, we love the tension created by pairing a cool green with a warm coral.
