When you think about the entertaining center of your home, your kitchen is probably the first room that comes to mind…but it wasn’t always that way. The living room, previously known as the drawing or sitting room, used to be the most important space. It was where ladies received guests during the day and where everyone met before and after dinner.
Physical walls used to determine the furniture layout of a room, but architectural designs have since evolved to include more open spaces. I love an open space plan because it gives you the opportunity to create various layouts using sectionals, sofas and lounge chairs! The position of each piece determines how the room flows and what the vibe of the room will be. So whether you want one large open space or one with a smaller space within, you have the flexibility to make it your own!
You have probably noticed that we LOVE gorgeous pops of color, in almost any space! And from our Pinterest page, you may have noticed our obsession with the vibrant red-orange we like to call ‘Tangerine Dream’. Our board features great ideas on how to incorporate this color into your home, all at-a-glance.
From a Dreamsicle pastel version, to a muted pumpkin, to brights that are the visual equivalent of a hefty dose of Vitamin C, orange is a great way to infuse your space with a sunny energy!
One classic pairing is a cool gray with a vibrant tangerine it – looks modern and bright and clean!
Another favorite combo is combining lavender with washed out orange. It’s feminine, but not too frilly.
You can bring this energetic and refreshing color into your space in so many ways; a single accent item or wall, a small grouping or accessories collection, or coating your room wall to wall in tangy color for a bold effect. Check it out and feel free to show us how you have incorporated a little tangerine into your own spaces!
