Colour du jour...Orange!

     Orange is positively ubiquitous this season.  And you know, I'm kind of loving it, which is odd because I've always had an aversion to orange.  It is probably indicative of the post traumatic stress I experienced from my childhood room that consisted of giant orange flowered wallpaper coupled with Florida naval orange curtains trimmed in chartreuse pom pom fringe...are you getting the picture?  I know, I don't paint a pretty one.  But I think I might be changin my tune on orange.  Now I'm not suggesting you go out and paint your entire room orange, or wear a head to toe Mrs. Brady get-up...

Oy vay, Alice you are in head to toe orange and wearing the cursed tiki idol that is causing all that trouble!

But pops of it actually work...

Pair an orange throw with a neutral color like gray, and it gives life to what would have been a pretty, but somewhat boring room...
