Zest it Up!

According to Better Homes and Gardens and Colorstrology a love of orange means that I am "Outgoing, creative, expressive and young at heart." I'd have to say that is right on.

We've all seen some pretty amazing orange rooms lately. It being fall and all, orange seems to be a pretty popular color.

If you are a little gun shy and afraid to jump in with both feet on the orange train here are a few zesty accessories to bring orange into your rooms without a full commitment:


Add a splash of color on your sofa with any of these throw pillows

Labyrinth Pillow from Z Gallerie, the Ikat Pillow from fabricadabra or just a plain orange pillow from Crate and Barrel


I would die to have a beautiful monogrammed cashmere throw exactly like this one from Leontine Linens


Pretty storage buckets like these would sure add a pop of color in a play room, office or garage.



Any plain family room would get a fabulous update with an orange side table...I'd do a pair of these, a classic Nola orange lamp or a Moroccan stool like this one from Pieces



Everyone could use beautiful storage these boxes can hold anything from jewelery to your remote controls on a coffee table. From Plantation and Pieces these for are my favorites.


Orange and nailheads whats not to love?? This umbrella holder would look amazing in any front entry.


maybe just a hint of orange is needed- spice up any candle holders or chandelier with pretty candle sleeves like these. You could even make your own, a very easy DIY project for sure.



Spice up a boring office with orange zebra and orange faux bois. Maybe just one at a time though :)


These orange stools are for two different purposes but both equally as pretty and fun!



These wire candle holders could be used inside or outside, either place they are cheap and chic.

In my opinion you cant go wrong with a little orange....or in my case alot of it.


Have a great weekend everyone!!

love the orange! My living room is actually a tangerine orange (which I have *finally* grown a bit tired of after 6 years), but I still want pops of orange everywhere! Glad to see another tangerine dreamer out there :-)
