The color of SOLD - ORANGE

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Properties Seattle

Above is an actual swatch from a recently sold property.  The huge living room was painted in this color.  The furnishings were very neutral, the walls were not.

In fact I've seen quite a few shades of orange and brown-orange lately.

Here are a few ideas:

Benjamin Moore's Flamme Orange above

Robust Orange below:

And one of my favorites from Pottery Barn that mixes well with Robust Orange

Semolina:

These colors go especially well in properties with lots of natural light that were built in the eighties and have warm caramel colored wood trims.

But they go just as well in a newer townhome or condo that has dark cherry kitchen cabinets.

The color of SOLD is not always white and boring :)

ARDELL, Great post!!! I love it. I wrote an offer on a house because the colors were the colors of Tuscany! There was this rich gold - almost like that Semolina that had a large crackeled type finish. The house I bought in Bremerton has what my husband likes to call Starbuck's walls because they are a latte color - a mocha light brown I love it -it was painted this way to sell. No one had ever lived in the house with this color. I am looking for a rich color for the kitchen and that Semolia would rock!!

Jo,

My bedroom is Mocha and Espresso accents :)  I didn't do the browns yet.  I'll do that post now.  They mix well with the Semolina.
