Coral & Orange and shades in between

It's hard to look at a design magazine lately and not see shades of orange everywhere.  I have to say I love a pop of coral or orange in any room.  It's a warm tone that mixes nicely with a variety of other colors.  Whether it's used boldly as a wall color, or as an accent color, it adds vibrancy to a room! When using it as a wall color, I'd stick with neutral furnishings and avoid the use of too much black.  Check out the rooms below, all of which, I think have incorporated the color nicely!

Accent Walls

I am often ask my opinion on "accent walls" and over the years my response has been the same.....they work in some applications.  My favorite place to have an accent wall is on the headboard wall of a bedroom.  And over the years it has been the one place I've use them.  Here are some examples of some well executed accent walls.

oops...more on this later...........I accidentally published this post before it was complete!!
