Orange + Green

= Spring! (Well, spring inspired).

I'm really loving the combination of a bright spring green with a citrus-y orange.  Check out the fabulous wallpaper in the second photo! 

Do you find you prefer different colour palettes depending on the season?  You know me & my penchant for warmer weather.  I think I'm always looking for ways to make the townhouse look cheerier and sunnier and colour plays a major role in that mission.  Last month the grown-up pastels I admired hinted at spring and I've already had my eye on this great shade of leaf-y green.  But now I'm seeing that a hit of bright orange is a dreamy addition and really warms up a space.  But I think I have to try to choose shades as bold as those in my inspiration folder . . .

  1. I'm absolutely smitten with orange, red and bright chartreuse or lime green.

  2. orange and red can never go wrong with spring green...awesome collation :_)

  3. Huh. I don't know if my color preference is seasonal or not?? I like red. ALWAYS.

  4. I didn't used to like orange much - it reminded me of the 60's. But now it's fresh, especially w/green, like you've said. Also with turquoise, too!

    Thanks for stopping by today!

  5. I would put orange everywhere if I could. Seasons don't matter to me. I want it to feel like summer all the time. award for you...from me...
