Can I ask you a question? I want your opinion. Don’t hold back. Tell me like it is.
What do you think of orange?
It’s kind of like the forgotten fall color.
I’ve been looking for ideas for fall and it seems that everyone is all about the blue and the red and the gray and the white for fall decorations this year. We are in such a rush to find new colors to decorate for fall that we forget all about a classic.
Poor orange. Everyone just forgets about it.
It’s like orange is so fall 2005.
But truly? Just between us?
I love a little neutral with my fall. But nothing says fall to me like an orange pumpkin.
Hang in there orange.
I’m on your team.
When I was planning out fall in the living room, I tried so many different colors.
I tried yellow.
I tried maroon.
I tried just blue and white.
And then I found these orange stems.
They were the perfect pop of color among a sea of blue.
I bought every single one that they had and filled a white pitcher on the table in the bay window between the blue and white striped chairs.
Then I added these orange hydrangea stems.
Just a little pop of orange here and there. The key to making them look extra cute? Find a vase with a narrow top. There are 2-3 stems in each vase and the narrow top allows them to stand upright and look like little tufts of fall.
I scattered them about the room.
There is still tons of blue and white in the living room.
It’s my favorite combination.
It looks even cuter and extra fall-like with all that orange.
Now that you’ve seen the living room what do you think about orange?
Are you team orange or team over it?
And what colors do you use to decorate for fall?
Neutrals or pops of colors.
The back of the house is all neutral.
But in this living room? When you walk in the front door?
In the middle of blue and white pillows and the blue and white rug and stacks of books and navy bookcases.
In the middle of all that?
I’m so happy this showed up.
I know, right?
Orange with a side of orange on top.
I love you, orange.
Welcome to 2021.
