Orange you glad it's almost Summer?

Orange is the color of sunshine, flowers, sorbet and SUMMER! Today we celebrate this vibrant and fun loving color. It's easy to incorporate orange... inside, outside or anywhere you choose.

Coastal Living states that zesty oranges add fresh-squeezed style to any interior or exterior space ~ I agree!

"Wake up a sleepy bedroom with a coat of bold orange paint. White linens and draperies will balance the bright color, providing simple, soothing contrast." shares Coastal Living.

  1. Orange 'cha glad we love it! Now I have to try to figure out a way to bring it in the living and dinning rooms, very cheery...

  2. I love it!! I would love that porch area, what a great place to entertain or just sit! Just what I needed on this dreary morning in Michigan! Thank you!

  3. I’m following you now on New Friend Friday! Please follow me back on my blog “Inspire!”


  4. I actually love the color orange but never use it in home decorating or clothing. The only place I have varying shades of orange is in the garden. I am going to check out the slide show to see how I can incorporate a little bit of orange in my home.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Love the orange! Happy New Friend Friday. =)

    My mom is going to build a patio soon and I will have to share this with her so she can maybe incorporate some of this into it.

  8. I've never really been a fan of orange but coincidentally I've been finding myself drawn to it in the last few months...not sure why but I do find it a very cheerful color, maybe that is why?

    Enjoy your weekend...

  9. I found your blog via, Get Your Blog Followers on fb. I have been on hiatus while finishing my book and I also had pneumonia. Hope you'll give me a visit.
