Four Easy Ways To Add Orange To Your Home

September 14, 2015
I found some photos of our previous home, it was good to visit her again.
We had just completed some of our remodel back in 2013, and I was beginning to decorate for Fall.  As you will see I was crazy over adding more of the traditional colors associated with the season.  Our gray walls, white trim and rich hardwood floors were a perfect canvas for seasoning our home with Orange.


Orange can also be referred to as tangerine, nectarine, bittersweet, titan.
Maybe even ocherous.
But at the end of the day, I suppose it is still orange.

If you are a fan of orange here are Four easy ways to add orange to your home for this most lovely time of the year.

Tip One-
Add orange pumpkins, with so many varieties and colors to choose from now, it seems like 
orange is at the bottom of the list.  Orange pumpkins add just a nice pop of color.

Tip Two-

Toss in a few burnt orange pillows-a more subdued tone on the sofa adds charm and not
overpowering color.

Tip Three-

Add Pip Berries to a grapevine wreath, centerpiece, napkin ring or candle ring.
I added a few orange and white pip berries to this rustic twig tree.

Tip Four-

Incorporate Art that has an orange theme.

I am crazy for orange, it is true. 
For me orange exudes, warmth, welcoming, comfort, coziness and a true symbol that Summer has given way to wonderful, colorful, vibrant, glorious Fall. 

I loved sharing my "old," home with you today, it was good for me to see her again.

  1. Wow! That view of your 'old' home, is amazing.... Not having been reading here for long, I don't really know the story, of why you left it.

    That living room had the perfect coloring, for adding any/all holiday decorations. A lovely, simple back ground... Just waiting for pops of color.

    I am afraid my home does not make a canvas, for orange decorations. :-( But I still put a wee bit in, especially at Halloween time.


    1. Tessa,
      We left our "old" home for a one story on two acres. My husband will be retiring in a few years and is looking forward to the space.
      We will be keeping with the gray and white color pallette in our new home as well, however our gray hues will be gentler and lighter in tone.
      Orange can be very overpowering, I suppose that is one of the reasons that so many of us prefer the white pumpkins that are all around this time of year.

      Thanks so much, I think all of those Southern exposure windows gave the room super quality light.
      It was a neat house to decorate:)

  10. I love that dark vibrant orange - man it was so beautiful - the perfect accent. Andy thinks we should paint the walls orange! Lol

  11. Your old home was lovely, and while I'm sure you're missing it right about now (btdt) your new home will be even better!

    I love orange too, but you're right...it's best used judiciously.

  14. Beautiful Jemma. I love the touches of orange. Everything pops. I know your new home will be gorgeous. xo

  15. Your living room is (was) gorgeous Jemma! The poppy painting looks beautiful on the mantle and ties all the orange accents together so beautifully! There are certain shades of orange that I love to decorate for fall in but I also adore the white pumpkins! Just imagine how much you will love decorating your new home! I, for one cant wait to see what you do.

  16. So beautiful and I love the poppies on the fireplace!! I can't wait to see how you decorate the new place for the tour!

  17. Very beautiful Jemma, and the orange...I'm smitten simply smitten. It's such a warm inviting color and perfect for this season. I've always wanted to paint one of our feature walls in our old condo a series of seasonal colors but never quite got around to it...

    Love the greys and whites too!


  18. Hello Jemma. Love your pops of orange. How beautiful. That poppy painting is the best! To me, orange is perfect for fall. Susan

  19. Your old home was gorgeous, and I know your new one will be as well. I am not a lover of orange, but girl; you do it so well! I do love it for Fall and Halloween, but don't have a lot of it in my home on a regular basis. I display red/orange poppies in my bedroom for part of the summer. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
