Orange is the New Black?

Orange isn't Just for Fall

In light of all the hype around the Netflix series "Orange is The New Black" I decided 
we need to talk about this fab color!  It's not just for prison jumpsuits, although I do think Martha Stewart totally rocked the look when she was a resident.

It's that time of year, when we are gearing for the change of seasons which means putting a little  Fall into our decor.  I have to admit, one of my favorite fall colors to decorate with is orange.  It makes the otherwise neutral fall colors much more interesting. I love orange flowers, orange linens and just about anything orange.   Over the past few years, orange has been creeping off the runway and into home decor.  It's not just for Fall or Halloween decorating anymore.  How did this love affair with orange begin?  Could it be from popularity of status brands known for their bold use of orange?  I mean come on, who doesn't think of Hermes when you think of orange?  Which one of you wouldn't love to find an orange Birkin or Clic H bracelet on your bed when you get home today?   Exactly! I would be lying if I told you I only use orange in the fall. I discovered the versatility of orange, about 10 years ago, when I bought my first pair of Tory Burch Patty Wedges  I quickly found out that it was a perfect accent color.  It goes with everything! Pop a pair of orange shoes, handbag or scarf on an otherwise boring outfit and it kicks it up a several notches.   It's the same with a room.  Throw in a couple of orange pillows, a vase or rug and voila instant update! Just look what the Hermes boxes do for the vignette in the first photograph above created by Elizabeth from Little Black Door.

  3. Love it!!!! I'm thinking of accent colors to warm up my neutral interiors for fall, and orange is definitely high on my list! Once again, you are right on it. Look forward to seeing your orange sofa, Lisa.

  4. As much as I can appreciate the love of orange, I can not wear it! It makes me look 95+, and at my age I don't want to look any older than I really am.
    I am a believer that if you can't "wear" a color, you should avoid surrounding yourself with it in your home. So, sadly, no orange at the BLH!

  5. Lisa, I do love orange and have a variety of furnishings & accessories in my living room.
    Then, I also have art with shades of orange. The terracotta's, rusts, burnt orange, clear Hermes orange. Beautiful.

  6. Haha! I planned on posting this exact trend since orange is my favourite colour, but I figured I already bombard my readers with orange images too much, so I went with an all black everything post today( which I've also be noticing a lot of in design). I have quite a bit of orange in my home so LOVE this post!

  9. Thanks for sharing my picture Lisa! The irony is that I am always scared of orange. I love it but am always worried it won't work. Thanks for all the good inspiration pics, it gives me the incentive to try more orange!
