fall colors

September 15, 2011

Cooling temperatures means that it’s my favorite season of the year!

Fall!

I love it: I love the cool, sunny weather… being able to wear my boots…the wonderful smells of crispy leaves… AND the beautiful fall colors!

We perused one of our go-to showrooms at IMS, Francis King, for furniture, lighting, and accessories in the warm reds, oranges, and yellows of the season.  Here’s what we found to inspire you on how to bring these fall colors into your home this season and year round…

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!
