Our Latest Favorite Color: Orange!

We posted last week about our favorite shade of blue.   Another color we absolutely love, in moderation, is orange.  It is the perfect accessory color.  Or, if you are very brave, you can use it in an even stronger way.  We love it in rooms, and we love it in our wardrobe.  It is the perfect way to add warmth to a room or that pop of color to an outfit.

We love Ivanka Trump, particularly her fashion and decorating style.  In her bedroom, the cool blue walls are perfectly brightened up by orange accessories.  Candice Olson doesn't own the light blue market afterall!

We have posted Barrie Benson's home on MoS a thousand times, but it keeps inspiring us.  The pair of orange chairs at the foot of her bed is so unexpected and keeps the room young and interesting.

Leontine definitely knows how to use color in such an effective way.  We love the crisp white bedding contrasted with the bright orange monogram.



Orange walls are not for the faint of heart!  But when paired with simple black and white or navy and white (even better!), it works!

This beautiful Ruthie Sommers room reminds of Ivanks Trump's room above (or vice versa).  A coat of paint is the perfect way to jazz up a lifeless chest of drawers- wouldn't orange be a welcome change?!

Orange is quintessential Hermes.  If you can only get one bangle, we think orange is the way to go.  Although we love drooling over the fabulous magnetic rack of bangles in every color at the Hermes store!



Since it's January, are we allowed to get excited about resort fashion?!  These flat embellished orange leather sandals from Kate Spade would be so cute with white jeans and a fun Tory Burch tunic.



Wayfarers are back!  My father in law still rocks his awesome Wayfarers from the 70's, but if you want a fun new color, how about orange?! 



As much as we love Pamela Skaist-Levy's taste in interior design, we aren't usually nuts about Juicy (unless it's at Rugged Wearhouse), but this watch has made the cut!  What a fun statement piece!



I was lucky enough to receive this candle as a gift from MoS Washington, and it smells as fabulous as it looks!



I recently went in Kate Spade to check out their new arrivals and fell in love with this bag! It's a big orange tote with a navy ribbon- orange with navy is the perfect color combination.


Z Gallerie always has the best home accessories. Aren't these lanterns so cute?! They would be so pretty arranged on a table or on the edge of a fireplace.



Tory Burch does orange so well. She always pairs it with fab colors in such an unexpected way. Before Tory, we wouldn't have thought to wear orange and fuchsia together, but it totally works!



And yes, we have mentioned this leontine-esque bedding from Z Gallerie before, but it's still available (and marked down to only $60!). Grab it before it's gone!


Do you wear orange? Do you have something orange in your home?  Tell us about it!

I never wore orange before-- but found a cute oil cloth tote with an orange and white geometric pattern-- and have been able to get a lot of use out of it! Love pairing it with my deep purple coat. Great pictures of orange decor!

Ummm, I LOVE orange (clearly evidenced by my blog's design). I also carry around a big ol' orange leather work bag that is truly divine, and I'd like to think it is my signature accessory. I am sprinkling orange accents around my living room.

I am a firm believer in orange - and I find it to be the perfect punctuation color - it is a wonderful color to use in small, strong doses. Love this post!

Orange is my favorite color. I have lots of things in my closet and my house that are orange...maybe too many things but I do LOVE it!

I love orange! I just posted today about my orange and turquoise bedroom which includes the Solano bedding from Z Gallerie!

I didn't think I like orange. You may have just changed my mind.
