Knock-Knock, Who’s There? Orange!

I have been thinking a lot about Orange lately…seems it has been knocking on my door and I finally answered it.

Now if I was a really Rich Girl (like Gwen Stefani)


Orange Leather

I would run out and buy one of these, saw it @ Crate and Barrel for $1249.00 on sale wow ☞

Then I would decorate my back yard like this next picture

Orange Hue Backyard

Reality hits and I have to think smaller. So I have hit the accessories shops. In the past year I have been collecting Orange accessories’ here and there and finally brought them out and have been placing them strategically around my home.

The bright color brings me joy so I looked up its meaning and this is what the experts say:

Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food(maybe should not paint Kitchen Orange). It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck’s color is orange ( Next time I go to Vegas I am wearing Orange). I have been told that if a change of any kind is needed in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.

Put some orange in your life when you want:

to spice things up when you feel time is dragging

to become more involved in something

to increase creativity

relief from things becoming too serious

I am pleased with my Orange Splash’s thru-out my home, it curbed my Decorating Frenzy I was in with the new fad, I wonder what the next fad will be? Do you have a color fad going on? Please share!. I hear that Grey is the new Brown, so at my office I am re-modeling a few things and adding in Grey and Yellow. Cant wait to see it!

  1. I seem to have a lot of lime green going on right now, but with splashes of other colors like yellow and orange and red. Seems to work for summer. πŸ™‚


  2. Orange you lovely! (you had to know that was coming : )

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos, your home looks great . You are quite the decorating diva!
    My theory exactly….. fill your surroundings with color and things that make us feel so good and happy. You make me smile. My new color frenzy….plum. Living in the forest I have to keep it just enough but not too much.


      1. I have been so into chocolate, and had the Tuscan thing going for awhile. Not to be surprised but the other big accent color in both places has been orange! Deep russets, paprika, that hue. So now I need change (always change, like dishes, sheets bedding etc) I guess it’s more like a brownish plum or eggplant, I’m on my quest for! just enough change to keep me satisfied for awhile until my next phase…. Did I tell you I’m a fabric freak and Potter Barn-a-holic! We are undergoing huge landscape project, so when done, I will get creative and send some pictures of my projects.
