OK, let’s just cut to the chase…
Orange & Black
It’s a great combination isn’t it?
So let’s not just save it for Halloween.
The black part of the equation is easy. Orange may be introduced as simply as above,
with art, flowers, fruits, veggies in the kitchen, throws, books, glass or pottery in orange hues, candles, candy in a bowl,
leaving a luscious Leica laying around…
A minor touch of orange carries major impact!
and if you don’t have the element of fire in a room, orange is your man.
To further prove my point;
Love the art propped against the fireplace in this contemporary space.
These are Von’s roses, not from my garden. No scent, but they lasted about 9 days! Viagra roses.
Take note how many of these images have some form of natural wood working beautifully with the orange & black combo.
Such a cool kitch!

Do I see Viagra roses?
Here, natural wood, orange & black are adding a contemporary pop to an otherwise traditional room.
I want to hang a hammock inside somewhere, don’t you?!
How about a sexy Public Bike propped casually against your wall
This is a favorite photo so I’m sorry I don’t have the credit.
The coziness of a sleeping nook, dark wood and the arched leaded window are all so charming.
Here fiery orange & deep charcoal in my “Boy Barn”
It will be finished…eventually. You know how I hate to be rushed.

Black bookcases are terribly chic.
Splashes of orange tones highlight them to dramatic effect in these three photos
and Hermes blankets always make Mommy happy.
Pumpkin blankets and crisp black lines help to make this bedroom a triumph.
Oh, you naughty young Parisian man in Hotel Costes! How did you get on this post?!
I like the warmth of this living space looking out on to the snow and pines, but can you tell what’s going on on the ceiling?
and a touch of plum in these two pics
LOVE this bold, fun room, especially the burnt orange velvet cushions on the African bead chairs.
Go baby steps
but do think about giving orange & black a go-go (been watching Madmen much?!)
