pumpkin orange and 300

Loving this "pumpkin orange" book shelf and the way it adds a pop to this neutral room. Now I want a painted bookshelf to call my own. Maybe all the orange pumpkins are sending me subliminal messages. I just looked down and spotted that I have "300" followers. Thank-you to each of you for visiting. Hope you will visit often and be inspired to live an artful life, even on the gloomiest of days!

It is funny you write about pumpkin orange. I am green gal yet over the weekend I saw some beautiful bath towels in pumpkin orange that were calling my name. I didn't get them, but I haven't stopped thinking about them. Hmmm... maybe this is my little voice saying yes add a splash of color to our bath. xoxo

I went through an orange phase awhile back something about that color makes me smile! Listen to that inner voice!

The seasons have so much to do with it, don't you think? I love all of the browns, russets, oranges right now- but after Thanksgiving... reds, greens, gold, burgundy, olive......
We must find you a bookshelf and a console. Have a great day-I know it's going to be a full one. My word verification is 'cutie'!

I love pops of color in a room, and orange has its magic. I have a few orange bird of paradise silk flowers in a large urn I love looking at them!
Good luck finding what you want, and as always, there is always paint, as you very well know. :)

I was actually planning to do an "orange" post tomorrow! It's one of my favorite "boom, pow" colors to add a punch to any room. That bookcase definitely has an Hermes vibe to it. So striking!

Pops of color like this add so much interest to a room's design!

I believe that you cannot get enough orange.
Congrats on 300!!

Nessa said...

That makes me want to paint something... anything orange.

The pumpkin orange is so nice and especially in the combination with this white chair in front of it! I do like everything on this picture!!

Stunning- it really is offset by the minimalistic coloring of the room! Great find and congrats on 300 :) Perfect excuse for a cupcake!

Love the pop of orange against dark chocolate - Hermes got it right with their color scheme!

Congratulations on the 300!!

OMG! I am trying to pick a colour for the hallway of the 1850's building where I work. I've gone from pale yellow to silver sage, from a greeny beige to pumpkin!

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Oh yes - I'm particularly in love with both spicy oranges and saffron-y yellows this season! They really warm a space up when it's cold outside!

gatherings home said...

I have been loving all the beautiful shades of orange. Been debating on whether or not I should paint a vintage serpentine bureau a high gloss pumpkin. I'm kinda thinkin' I should!

Woo hoo on the 300! But I am NOT surpised;-) I too am looking for a punchy orange for a cool table that I scored at the Salvation Army thrift store a few weeks back. I need to revisit that project asap.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

I find that pops of orange very much like yellow, make a space so intensly happy. I adore this bookcase. Congrat's on the #300 - testimony to a fablous, inspiring blog & person.

gina said...

300! Good show. :-) I'm smitten with orange and I've also wondered if it's the world o' pumpkins that surrounds me. The Southern Living mag I just picked up had an orange front door that I'm in love with. I'm thinking of buying some orange towels for my powder room to inexpensive get my fix. :-)
