Orange inspiration

Robin emailed the other day looking for some colour inspiration: "I was wondering if you could dig up some photos of orange rooms. I painted my living room a clay orange to match a fabric I love and now I’ve lost the orange inspiration! Help!" I dug up some photos of spaces with orangey walls to hopefully help Robin finish her living room. Note: grey, white, taupe and chartreuse seems to be popular choices to use with orange.

I'm not usually a big fan of orange rooms but that Michael Robinson one is just gorgeous! This has given me an idea for my own sitting room that requires a unique color. Thanks!

I too am not usually a fan of orange for interiors, but these work very well.

lots of orange w/out some white or nuetrals really is heard to bear.

hello, from "orangered":
i'm going back to the name "pinkorangred"
(in celebration of not the cocteau twins song of the same name, but of
the US getting it right this time,
electing Obama...a huge ball of stress has lifted, we've come out of a cave...w/ fingers crossed of course...).
THANK YOU, your blog has never felt more beautiful !
