mad about orange!

September 7, 2010

This morning I woke up and everything was grey. How drab… Here’s a fun shot of color.  Please enjoy my spotlight on one of Holly’s favorite colors and all the fun it has to offer!

Did you know…

* Orange is said to stimulate activity and your appetite

* It also promotes socialization; which might be why Native Americans associate it with kinship

* The great artist, Kandinsky, once said, “Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow”

* The color orange was extremely important in the Elizabethan Era. English Law even dictated who could and who could not wear this color of status!

* Watch Ken Nordine’s smooth and cheeky poem ‘orange’ come to life on youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH8Ir1djOAs&feature=related

In this collage, I have found some fun orange items for your house!

  • The sofa/ bunk bed is from MobileForm. How cool is this?! 🙂
  • The fun console table is from Somerset Bay
  • The  floral fabric can be found at Kravet
  • The pendant light is sourced from Currey & Company
  •  The plates and mugs with orange spoons are from CB2

cheers!
