In the past I have always shied away from this color.  However, I recently decided that I would like to give my own room a makeover (more to come on that later!).  After two long years with my current room colors (avacado green, dark brown and white), I have decided to try something new!

No . . . I am not painting my room orange!

I will, however, be incorporating soft, warm oranges into my new color palette.  I think that when orange is integrated tastefully, it can come off as bright and fun in a room that is mostly made up of calm and relaxing blues & greys.  That’s the effect I hope to give off in mine, anyway.  Bright, sunny spots amongst some cooler colors.

Here are some old photographs of mine to help get the ideas flowing.  Enjoy!
