Orange: The Hot New Colour for 2012

January 18th, 2012

Well, they say all good things come to those who wait!

I first started looking to add splashes of orange accents to my space a good two years ago and let me tell you it was a challenge.  It’s not easy being ahead of the times!  It took until last summer to finally start seeing bits of orange popping up here and there and with that I finally found some great eye popping orange and cream fabric that I could use for accent pillows.

I wasn’t always a fan of orange and like with so many things in life you either love it or hate it.  Happily that dislike didn’t last and I can’t tell you how much fun it is to see orange showing up in everything from fashion to furniture to kitchen products.

Orange is a power colour.  Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.  So, I say what’s not to love about orange!  So whether you go big or go small, here’s to surrounding ourselves with a little orange and enjoying what unfolds for 2012!
