Orange Crush

I used to despise orange. Never wore it, never decorated with it. In fact, never ate an orange because of the texture. Things change. I now love orange. I have accents of it throughout my home... from the front porch to the powder room to the family room. I LOVE orange. And I tolerate a glass of oj (no pulp of course).

My favorite pot on the front stoop, filled with ranunculus, pansies, new zealand flax, western sword fern and ivy.

The guest bathroom. A silver sage paint with orange accents. The small landscape oil paintings were done by an artist on Maui. We picked those up on our last trip there and they're the perfect accent by the orange orchid.

I also got this beautiful fish drawing at a map store in Maui. And I had it framed with the orange mat and thick dark wood frame.

Moving on to my moorish tile rug from Pottery Barn. And lookey there, a very tired orange and white puppy (even the pet complies with my color scheme). Her name's Pixel (more about Pixel later as she deserves a post to her own). She had just completed 6 weeks at bird camp and was very exhausted.

And finally, our family room/kitchen is painted Sherwin Williams Rustic Adobe.
