Simply Orange in Decor

The forecast promises warmer weather next week. It will be nice to wake up to sunshine.
(Don't forget to come back this Friday for my $125 giveaway!)

My favorite juice wakes me up every morning.
For the cost of a supermarket bouquet, simple orange wakes up my decor.

Look at the size of this cinnamon roll from local bakery, The Donut Factory! 

Lucky to find this little tray for $1 at a yard sale in the popular lattice/fretwork pattern. 


Pops of orange.
 Wouldn't you want to rise and shine in these bedrooms?





Velvet softens the look.
Keeping it simple with flowers.


Always fun in a kid's bedroom.

Palmer Weiss makes it pretty in a family room.

And Tobi Farley shows us how to balance.

Really lovely pictures. I am normally not a fan of orange but paired with the right colors, it adds freshness and zest to a room. Just like orange juice! Thanks for the post!

Hello my friend,
A punch of orange here and there certainly wakes up a visually quiet room, doesn't it. I love the rooms with orange and light blue, they look very striking together. In my first home I had orange curtains and an orange rug. It looks like it is in again, doesn't it.
Hugs, Cindy

Oh, my dear! Your oranges are just perfect for spring and I love them all, but my favorite is the orange with the sky-blue walls and draperies... miam-miam!

I have been "off the tracks" so to speak this week.

Love all the orange! I'm a Clemson girl! When I was a teenager, I convinced my mom to let me paint my bedroom orange-it was more like the color of orange sherbet. I really like that green tray that you got for such a steal!
