Hot, Hot, Hot!

Monarch Orange is the new red! Orange takes flight with characteristic optimism. Warm and energetic, this vibrate shade has the power to uplift. This year you will see the color orange in men and women clothing, shoes and home furnishings. Orange is symbolic of courage so it is no wonder that designers working with this color use it to bold effect. When it is the dominate color, a room becomes electrified, simulating conversation and social interaction. It may be grounded in mocha or sage green or pop color with black, indigo and pearl. Take a look a Benjamin Moore paint color Orange Nectar. It’s a great way to take a dark, drab room right into the festive spirit of the holidays.

So this year create an updated holiday theme with bright orange combined with moss greens. Southern states may like the refreshing blues paired with accents in orange. This combination trends towards our costal customers. And if you’re like me, I always want to be reminded of the sea, so why not decorate with those thoughts in mind. Be like orange… courageous. Happy decorating!
