I’m not a huge fan of orange, but I do like it when it’s a bit on the red side—particularly when paired with grays.
I have orange numbers on my house. These were designed by Erik Speikermann for DWR in 2006. Unfortunately, they have since been discontinued.
From LivingEtc. I know, this is pretty much heaven. See what that purple velvet chair has going on with the burnt-orange leather sofa? They’re going to run off into the sunset and get married, I know it.
Uh, where do I start? The crooked floorboards, the glossy gray paneled walls, the ceiling, the chairs, the sideboard—WOW. But you know it’s the orange lamps (yes, plural—see what’s going on in that back bedroom?) that make it. From ShootFactory.
Okay, the polar bear rug is a bit much, but shamone. LOOK AT THE ORANGE CHAIRS. Again, they totally make the room. Panton chairs really are at their best when they’re allowed to just chill out on the sidelines. And that orange striped rug in the next room over?! Oh, yes please. Both photos are from Sköna hem.
Eames Red-Orange is one of my favorite shades, but I don’t own a shell chair in this color (yet). I love how it looks with the white walls and the wood bench—and how it picks up the orange detail in the pottery. Lovely. Photo by Roland Bello.
I know, that’s right on the verge of being red, but let’s call it orange because it’s too perfect to leave out of this post. From LivingEtc. (Jenna Lyons, why are you so perfect? Also, WHY ARE MY BEDROOM WALLS NOT BLACK?)
p.s. If you happen to have a spare copy of the September issue of LivingEtc lying around, I would LOVE to buy it from you. For some reason, my regular magazine shop never got that issue in, and I missed it. That’s the first issue of LivingEtc I’ve missed in YEARS, and it’s one that I’d really really really like to have. attygreen13, you are awesome!!
p.p.s. If we met at the Remodelista party on Friday, speak up and say HELLO!
