A recent advertisement for Netflix’s ‘Orange is the New Black’ got me thinking about how much I truly love the color orange. I know it’s one of those hit or miss colors for most people; there is rarely ambivalence where orange is concerned. But from bright citrus to deep pumpkin, it’s a color that always draws me in.
Orange can be cheery, a pop of color against a neutral background of white or black. Or it can create a darker old-world library-like space when paired with woods and deep brown. I used to have orange in the living room of my previous house, and I find I am missing it terribly. Perhaps I can add an orange rug to my family room, or replace an aging leather bench with an orange substitute, just to give that little extra oomph.
Where do you have orange in your home?
