It is no secret that I love all shades of orange – from creamsicle to apricot to shrimp to this year’s color of the year (thanks to Pantone) – Tangerine Tango.  I love the punch of color that it can give to a monochromatic space and I adore it combined with other vibrant hues, like turquoise or hot pink.

I am working with a client now using pops of orange in every room so I have been scouring the marketplace for great accents and pieces of furniture that embody fun and functionality (and come in varying shades of ORANGE.)  There is something for everyone’s budget.

Below are some of my favorite things, rooms and looks -  Comment or email me things that you have a CRUSH on!
