Of Orange & Spice and Everything Nice

Orange is everywhere in my neighborhood. Harvest wreaths with autumn leaves, pumpkins of different shapes & sizes and the occassional scarecrow with the orange hat. But of course, orange starts sprouting everywhere around fall, halloween and thanksgiving. In feng-shui, it is also known as the “social color” suppose to spark lively conversations & good times. In interior decorating, it is considered a warm color closely related to browns, yellows & reds.

Room with analogous colors orange, red and brown.

Blue is its direct opposite considered to be its complementary color.

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
