Orange Love

Orange has been in and out for years now.  I remember the Spring 2005 Collection when I was at Armani and we received a beautiful tangerine leather satchel, that may have been one of those seasons when "orange is the new pink" was declared. I don't know as if orange will ever be the new pink, but it does seem to hang in a try. When we moved in to this house orange seemed to be having a bit of a peak (fall 2008)  and I was looking for a great rug for the green guestroom. My wishes were answered at IKEA where fell in love with a great rust-orange and white rug. Some great deep orange throw pillows from Madura finished off the room, along with a small orange lacquer tray from Pottery Barn. It's interesting that orange can be such a season-less color, I generally think of pinks in springtime, but orange brings up fall leaves, winter fires, spring flowers, and summer heat!


My Favorite Orange Rug





Lately, I have been seeing a lot more orange. It started with the introduction of Farrow & Ball's new colors, or more specifically their color No. 268 Charlotte's Locks. I really love this rich vibrant color, and want to use it as an accent in my sons next bedroom with greens, blues and whites.





These amazing new fabrics in orange are from Trina Turk's new outdoor collection for Schumacher. The bold graphics and amazing colors are a great way to welcome summer.
