Trend Color Spotlight: Burnt Orange

Golden amber. Warm brown. Burnt orange. The colors of fall are one of the most loved attributes of the season. Here at Carpet Mart in Louisville, KY, we’re all preparing for the fall season with some of our favorites like pumpkins, scarves, and warm apple cider. As the area’s leading flooring retailer, we’re constantly keeping up with evolving seasonal interior design trends so that we can provide excellent flooring design advice to our customers. This fall, we’re seeing burnt orange as a beautiful trending color.

Trend Color Spotlight: Burnt Orange

Reminiscent of fall foliage, burnt orange is sure to bring the season alive in your home. While bold and daring, burnt orange can also feel deep and rich depending on how the color is used in the home. When paired with darker colors, burnt orange is toned down. How can you incorporate burnt orange in your own home?


If you’re ready to welcome a new and exciting color in your home, burnt orange is a gorgeous paint color that can be warm and inviting. Paint an accent wall in the foyer or kitchen burnt orange for that extra wow factor. Don’t be afraid to use burnt orange paint in small spaces, like the powder room, as well. We love this orange paint pallet on Pinterest.


Throw pillows or accent pillows in burnt orange are the perfect way to incorporate the color trend in your home. These decorative pillows from Amazon instantly bring fall style into your home. Another option is to add a burnt orange throw blanket over the sofa or arm chair for a color infusion. From lamps to accent chairs, burnt orange will amp up your space.

Flooring and Rugs

Burnt orange looks beautiful against dramatically dark hardwood floors. For the ultimate in durability, also consider waterproof floors. Area rugs are an ideal way to introduce burnt orange in your space. We personally love this Tuscan-style rug from Oriental Weavers.
