My husband and I also recently bought our first home and I wanted a burnt orange color for our living room. The only problem was the room has gray-blue carpet which we can't afford to replace quite yet and I wasn't sure how to make it work. I spent forever trying to find a color scheme that would work (and not look like the 1970's) and finally found my inspiration at Goodwill...I found a poster print of a painting by Monet called "Crepuscolo" (means "twilight"). It uses burnt orange, a bit of red, gray-blue and a tinge of green....sounds awful in writing but the picture is beautiful. Maybe it will inspire you too! Also I found a lot of inspiration with that color in pictures/art about Morocco.

Good luck!
