I need some serious help with my newly painted room

So I just painted my room orange this weekend. I was hoping for a light brownish orange that would match my red and orange ikea bedspread. However, the walls turned out very bright and I now feel like I'm living in an orange dreamsicle or with some orange sherbet ice cream. I need to tone this down a bit because it is starting to give me headaches I think. I even tried switching out the light bulb in my room to a lower wattage to see if it would get darker but it is still so bright! So I'm thinking of sponge painting a brownish orange over the top of it. I still want the light orange to show through a bit, but just so that it isn't so overpowering like it is now. I'm not sure about sponge painting though. It looks really hard and I don't have much patience. It was hard enough for me to paint this room with just a roller the normal way. I don't want to mess it up by doing the sponge painting wrong or using the wrong amount of pressure. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I should mention that the room is empty right now too. So that might add to it's brightness. When I throw my red curtains up over the window it still looks bright in there, but do you think the room will look less bright once I put my bed and white furniture in there? Is it a bad idea to paint the trim and crown molding in the bedroom white as well? Should I try to paint them a darker beige or something to offset the orange?

Please provide advise. Thank you!
