Fall in love with orange

There's no escape: fall is here. It is surrounding us with warm reds, oranges and yellows - the same hues that we like to use as accent colours in our homes.

And while red really brings life to beige and taupe interiors, the vibrancy of orange and yellow is best appreciated when used in grey colour schemes, which are so in vogue right now. It's the contrast between warm and cool that makes the combination interesting.

Orange has been a popular accent colour for some time now. If you consider it for your home, first assess how pure or muted the other colours in the room are. Adding a vibrant orange to an otherwise muted colour scheme will not look right.

Beaver Canoe collection.
I saw some neat orange pieces when visiting the Target store in North Bay last week. They were part of the Beaver Canoe collection - a collaboration between Target and Roots. Make sure to check it out! It's a contemporary, organic collection that feels warm and inviting for this fall!

  1. At a garden tour this summer I noticed MANY of the gardens had beautifufl peachy-orange accents. There were orange wrought iron fences, orange garden stools, orange pillows, and even orange hippos! The bursts of colour were just beautiful!
