Hello friends! I know we are still in the throes of Summer, but I can’t help but be drawn to these warm autumnal colors, Bittersweet and Zinc. I love all the varying shades of orange, from the palest apricot to a rich warm rust. I know many clients shy away from this color for fear of it feeling juvenile or Halloween-ish. But paired with grays and cream, orange can become sophisticated and luxurious.
Oh how I would love to be bold enough to try a persimmon lacquered ceiling.

Mary McDonald, who is known for her use of rich bold color, has a beautiful kumquat orange fabric from her Schumacher line.
I love these more relaxed patterns from Thibaut in soft grays and orange. These would be great in a kids playroom or a kitchen breakfast nook.
And this room just makes me want to sit with a hot cup of tea and a captivating novel.
This space is probably my favorite. It has a luxurious feel but with a touch a masculinity.
Its all in the details, orange drapery panels with a contrasting gray and white banded edge.
So, how about you? Would you try some orange in your decor or do you have visions of pumpkins and Home Depot?
