The contrast between the beige and orange is a bit low. The ratio is currently 3.2:1 with f94a0a being the orange, If we switch to CA3C08, then we can bump the ratio to 4.6:1.
Even against white (#fff), the ratio is only 3.5:1.
Why is this important:
http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/visual-audio-contrast-contrast.html explains why 4.5:1 is a minimum that we should aim for. Essentially it greatly will increase the readabilty for people with low visual acuity (roughly people with 20/40 vision).
http://leaverou.github.com/contrast-ratio/ was used to check the ratios.
