Orange Crush

{Kelly Wearstler for Pickard}

I’ve been crushing on orange hues a lot lately. Orange wasn’t a favorite color of mine until a couple of years ago. It looks so great paired with so many other colors and it always looks chic, classic and crisp, not matter the context. It’s the perfect color for summer! Here is a little round-up of a few of my favorite orange items lately via Pinterest, natch!

{A Fabulous Necklace}

{The Fun, Orange Exterior of A Home in Mexico}

{These orange stools add the perfect punch of color to this lovely, classic kitchen.}

Orange is my least favourite colour, but it is so enticing in these images. I would really like a pair of orange trees in my house, have to choose the sunniest spot.

And that Rothko piece is beyond. He is one of my favourites.

Mmmm. I love orange/coral. Some of my fav combos are orange/teal and orange/hot pink.

I didn't think it was possible for my love of orange to grow - but that necklace and the Rothko print might have done just that!

Ha! I just took a break from baking, guess what? An orange cake! It's smelling good! :-)

The kitchen is my favorite one. Love the stools!

I love orange! It's so vibrant and fresh and I love it when paired with gray. I love the Dovecote Decor vignette with the orange lamps, garden stool, pillows, and storage boxes.

I love the pop of orange in that otherwise neutral, classic kitchen - gorgeous! I love orange and have posted about it also here: http://bjdhausdesign.blogspot.com/2011/02/absolutely-orange.html
