Orange Crush

Jun 30, 2011

Normally I am not an orange girl at all. Especially for interiors I tend to gravitate more towards blues and grays but lately I have been loving this burnt orange color. Tibi’s new line sparked my interest, when I saw these beauties. I mean I seriously need that one shoulder dress.

Then I came across all these gorgeous interiors and I am kind of loving the pop of orange. I could never commit to this in a whole room but I am thinking a few accents like pillows or lamps would be fab!

I most definitely love orangish nails. Chanel’s Orange Fizz is one of my favorite summer colors.

And one of my favorite drinks is a mimosa, so maybe I am orange girl after all??

What are your thoughts on orange? Yay or nay?

    Being a huge Carolina fan, I tend to stay far away from Orange. But my Clemson bf must be rubbing off on me because I find my self gravitating towards orange a lot more frequently now…crap.

    i never was a huge fan of orange but seeing it pop up more and more this summer and in cute lil other places, i really enjoy it 🙂 xo

    yay!! go buy the one shoulder dress, so pretty and would look amazing with a tan.

    I have a little of the burnt orange in my living room, in the carpet and some accessory pieces, I agree could not do that as the main color in my room

    I am an orange lover but also in small doses. Fashionwise I can't pull of yellow with my complexion & hair, so I tend to lean towards orange! Decor wise, I agree with you it is a great accent!

  5. Sara says:

    I agree, you should definitely get the one shoulder dress. It would look great on you.

    I never liked orange…until I went to Univ of TN…and then I wore it every weekend 🙂 Now, I still drift towards it and buy it for fun shirts…but I'm LOVING that one shoulder dress!!! I have to say, I would not paint any walls or decorate with it much. Not yet, at least….

  7. This color looks great on most. Esp love it on the nails!

  8. I love the nail polish. Something about orange in an interior makes it look so 1970's don't you think? Not necessarily a bad thing but it gives a retro vibe.

  9. I never gravitate towards this color but I think you just convinced me to change my mind! Love all of your picks. Anything Tibi makes me happy!

  10. Ooo love the one shoulder dress! And those interiors are stunning AND I love the nail polish. Love orange…it's the color of the Giants! 🙂

  11. Amanda says:

    I love that orange dress though!!!

  12. Natalie says:

    Ooh I'm with you, I never really use or wear orange, but I need to– it looks so chic! You'd look gorg in the one-shoulder dress.

  13. Christina says:

    i am definitely an orange girl. i wear it as much as i can. that nail polish color is similar to the pedicure i just got!

  14. You DO need that dress. And the skirt. I LOVE orange and I think they would look great on you!

  15. Laura says:

    I love orange! It looks great with a tan and blonde hair!! The one shoulder dress is a hot number!

  16. I have a huge crush on orange right now! I love how it looks with navy. I am really loving that one shoulder dress and that nail color. Dreamy.

  17. Becca says:

    I love burnt orange too with a hint of coral! The room with the tree painted on the wall is gorgeous! I wouldn't mind a mimosa either :-p


  18. Oh huge crush going on right here, honey! I love what a pop of orange can do for a room… hello, HERMES (c; I love that room with the equestrian flair…makes me almost wish I liked animals that much…

  19. Val says:

    I'am beyond on love with all things orange these days…..It just makes me happy just like yellow!! =)

  20. I'm not a big fan of orange, but I like to see it in other people's houses 🙂
