“Orange is the happiest color.” – Frank Sinatra
Orange you glad it’s almost fall (on the calendar at least)? I couldn’t be happier. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but the thought of cooler temps, warm fires and a glass or two (or three) of a robust cab are sounding pretty luscious right about now. I’m also excited about bold, vibrant, hot fall colors, especially orange! Apparently, so is the paint company Valspar, which named “Orange Slice” as one of its 2019 Colors of the Year way back in January.
Orange is a color that is all in, you know what I mean? It makes you sit up and pay attention. It’s happy, joyful, uplifting, playful, energetic and optimistic. It’s the color of falling leaves, pumpkins, sunsets, marigolds and marmalade. Orange is mango, copper, persimmon, burnt sienna, citrus orange and blood orange. Orange is the color of the season. And I’m loving it.
So how can you squeeze all of the sunshiny goodness out of this happy hue in your home?
Orange is a vibrant addition to a contemporary setting.
It’s equally fabulous in a more traditional room.
Sometimes a little orange goes a long way.
And sometimes orange can take center stage!

Orange can be dark and moody. Or it can be the pop of color in a moody space.
It can also be bright, vibrant and literally bounce off the walls.
Orange is an awesome accent color and plays well with other bright hues.
It can also make a bold statement all on its own.
Orange brings warmth to a cool gray room. (For more beautiful gray rooms, CLICK HERE).
It’s the perfect foil for fuschia.
And it pops with purple.
Of course, we can’t forget orange and blue… a classic combo.
Walls come alive dressed in orange patterned or textured papers and tile.
And it’s a standout color in any artwork!
Orange doors make a memorable first impression.
And pop underfoot.
And kitchens “wow” with orange appliances!
We’re loving orange, what about you? Not sure yet? You could always try it out on your dog first.
