a new hue














I find myself quite suddenly and out of nowhere infatuated with orange.
I've added coral to my closet, peach to my blush, bronzer to my daily routine. It hasn't entered my decor yet, but I'm thinking it would play really nicely off the creams and blue!

I think when we see something in the media and in print we become more taken with it and we try to think of ways to introduce it in our lives. It is a perfect summer color with tans. I am not a gal that likes any of the orange family, but a soft shell blush color is always a classic beauty to me. I think it would look great with the grays and blues that you seem to love, A fun new pop!! Enjoy your weekend, Kathysue

I adore orange and blue together, especially a paler blue or aqua... Lovely.

Orange is such a happy color. I like it, and am also really liking yellow lately.

I've never been a fan of orange but recently I've changed my mind! Must be all the orange that is in fashion at the moment. I started off with a pair of orange ballet flats and last week bought a bright orange dress with gold studs all over it - not me at all but fell in love with it and wore it out Thursday night and got great comments! Go orange!

I too, have fallen in love with orange! I just redid my family room in tangerine orange and powder blue. Soothing but punchy...
