Feng Shui Benefits of Orange Lamp Shades
In feng shui, the color orange is a fire element. Orange can be used freely in the following feng shui bagua areas: South (Fame & Reputation); Southwest (Love & Marriage); and Northeast (Spiritual Growth and Self-Cultivation). A touch of orange can be added to the center of your home as well. However, avoid using too much orange in the following feng shui bagua areas: West (Children & Creativity); Northwest (Helpful People & Blessings); East (Health & Family); and Southeast (Money & Abundance).
Like most feng shui fire element colors, orange is generally best as an accent color. For this reason, custom lamp shades with a touch of orange are a perfect way to add the warmth, beauty, and cheer of orange. If you find red too intense, orange can be a great alternative.
Vibrant and playful, orange lamp shades can be a wonderful addition to your living room, dining room, kitchen, child’s play area — or any social living space in which you want to promote lively and cheerful interaction.
With a glimmer of orange, custom lamp shades can remind us of the beauty of autumn, the warmth of fireplaces, and the magic of sunsets.

Psychology of Orange Lamp Shades
In color psychology, orange is the color of social communication, interaction, creativity, freedom, and adventure. A color with flare, orange is optimistic, uplifting, rejuvenating, spontaneous, extroverted, and uninhibited. Orange can inspire a positive outlook and emotional strength during tough times. As a result, orange can help people overcome disappointments, depression and grief. A dynamic color, orange offers more thoughtful warmth than a more dynamic red. Additionally, the color orange is thought to increases oxygen supply to the brain, stimulating mental activity and invigoration.
Orange lamp shades can promote extroversion, playfulness, and enthusiasm in your home. If you love social dinners and lively conversations with friends, orange lamp shades are perfect for your kitchen or dining area. Physically and mentally stimulating, the color orange can encourage both eating and talking. However, if you’re trying to lose weight, you’ll want to avoid orange in the kitchen. Since the color orange has high visibility, custom lamp shades need only a touch of orange to benefit from the colors warmth, cheer and energy.
Orange has been an underrated and sometimes unpopular color throughout history. While it’s healthy and engaging, many see the color orange as abrasive or crass.
