Pictured above is a Greek Red-Figure Lekythos and a Pantone color strip. The vase provides inspiration for the color match. Orange is a vibrant, social, happy color. Orange teams well with other members of the orange family and their close relatives–the browns and yellows.
The right orange can be an elegant accent for doors, trim and windows. Orange as an exterior house color can be accented or trimmed out with cream, tan, taupe, or beige. Orange will intensify when used outside, so be careful when using orange on exterior surfaces.
