Gray Skies but warm inside

 
Burnt Orange
 
 
Burnt Orange:
 
 
This color emits a negative vibration indicating pride, tension and aggressive self-assertion.
 
The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.

Orange relates to 'gut reaction' or our gut instincts, as opposed to the physical reaction of red or the mental reaction of yellow.

Orange offers emotional strength in difficult times. It helps us to bounce back from disappointments and despair, assisting in recovery from grief.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This iconic orange and zebra hide room is sheer balance to my eye.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A bagged Birkin and a little leopard and fur to boot!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Of course the beat of vintage Hermes, black riding boots and a little brown trimmed ribboned orange box does brighten a gray sky.

Humm, storage in the shower and on your night stand by style fizz.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I think these boxes may also help me get organized and in a warm happy and cheerful way!

This Hermes orange inspired foyer is glistening with happiness and gleaming with strength!
 
 
 
 
 
From the decorator bible this one tote in burnt orange sets the vivid color in this room.
 
 
 
 
 
 
From Flor, these stacks of orange boxes and blue and white chevron designed flooring is hard to beat!

Just a pop of color is enough to set off an otherwise traditional vignette.

I am off to get more boxes for all my goodies!

Love the addition of orange to the rooms. I like the foyer picture with the elaborate gold table and orange accessories. I think using bold colours and/or elaborate furnishings/textures in a white room saves the room from being too sterile and adds warmth and character.
