The Best Sheet Colors If You Have An Orange Duvet

When you think about the color orange, what comes to mind? If you're like us, you probably think of your favorite freshly-squeezed juice, but what about a duvet cover? It may seem scary because orange is such a bright color, but according to BournCreative, orange represents happiness and excitement, and who doesn't want to start their day feeling happy and energized? If you're worried about choosing the correct colored sheets for your orange duvet, it is actually easier than you think. All you have to do is decide which aesthetic best suits you and your bedroom space.

Sure, you can go the safe route and choose white sheets for your orange duvet, or you could shake things up with an unexpected color. Take a step outside of your comfort zone and try something new (after all, they are just sheets). If you're uncertain which colors to look at, we have a few tips to help you decide. Now, let's take a look at the best sheet colors to complement your orange duvet.


Before you go running for the hills, hear us out. According to Live Science, red is the color of passion and courage, so by pairing red sheets with your orange duvet, you'll wake up supercharged and ready to take on the day. If this color combo scares you, good! Like we said, everyone deserves to try something new and different, especially when designing your home. Remember, you don't need to overwhelm yourself with an entire room of orange — just make your bed the focal point and add a few accent pieces here and there.

To really make your bedroom pop, choose a set of red sheets with a fun pattern. If your duvet already has an extensive design, consider solid red sheets instead. Or, you can get really crazy and have an entire bed of patterns — there are no rules! It's all about your style and vibe.


For a more funky, retro vibe, pair your orange duvet with purple sheets. Nix explains the color purple represents royalty, power, and ambition. Combine that with orange's determination and creativity, and you've got yourself a power duo. Orange and purple were especially popular in the early 1960s when interior design was bold and "groovy." The two were known to get people's attention, which is why they were often found in kitchens and bedrooms, Vintage Unscripted explains.

If you're interested in trying out the purple and orange combo, New Idea recommends choosing a similar shade of each. For example, if your duvet is a deep orange, find a deep purple set of sheets to go with it. The same goes for bright orange and bright purple. If you've never considered a funky 1960s mood for your bedroom, this fun color combination may just be the thing that changes your mind.
