As we begin to welcome fall, summer is not quite behind us yet. A perfect color to transition summer to autumn is orange. Deep shades of brick, medium tones of pumpkin spice, and pastel shades of melon all have a place in our homes from now through the end of November.
For those who like a lot of contrast, shades of orange pop against white.
And lighter shades of orange blend beautifully with deep brown woodtones.
Orange is a perfect accent color for creams and taupes.
Even the kitchen looks beautiful when dressed in this color.
Formal or casual, summer or fall, brick or melon, it all works this time of year. Enjoy!
