Blue and orange are on the complete ends of the color wheel so they are known to compliment each other. By adding a warm color tone (orange) to a cool (blue) color scheme livens the space by adding in a complimentary pop of color.

The RULE: When figuring out what colors go together or as we designers say, "compliment" each other, use the color wheel.  Anything on the opposite side of the color wheel, is that color's complimentary color. Use this rule when deciding on an accent color for any room.
