From Houzz: If you want to use orange in your kitchen but aren't loving the bright orange hues, try looking for light orange colors that have some yellow or brown in them — they will have a mellow vibe without looking too pastel.
A powerful combination of burnt orange and ever-so-light powder blue makes this kitchen a standout. The warmth of the orange walls is juxtaposed by the cool blue and creamy white tones. Dark hardwood floors also work to anchor the room. Turquoise and orange dishes behind the glass cabinets repeat the room's color scheme. Above the cabinets, indigo plates offer another splash of unexpected color./
