Isn't orange a great color? Especially in the fall.

It's the color of leaves, and pumpkins, and chrysanthemums. It's also a color I use in decorating my home this time of year.

I re-hung my orange vintage drapes in the bedroom....

put the black crow with the orange heart and sunflower on the kitchen window,

displayed an orange painting and a paperweight on the bookshelf,

put a few pillows on the sofa with warm orange and red colors,

and speaking of warm, a few throws,

and last but not least, some yummy orange slice candy in the candy dish.

How's that for some orange.
Bring some orange into your home this time of year. It will make it feel warm and cozy.

The shades of orange you use are so warm and those pillows on the couch!

I hear that orange is the new red. Orange you glad? sorry. Mimi

Indeed, orange and hues of brown and red are my favorites; very warm and significant of fall.
Lovely pictures.;))

Aren't you clever even having orange curtains for fall! We love orange, too. Such a happy warm color! And... who doesn't love orange gummy slices? (although the red cinnamon ones are our favorite!;0)

Donna, everything looks so warm and pretty.

Aund, my favorite of Autumn leaf color is orange. My husband prefers the red leaves.

Everything looks so warm and cozy.
I would love to see the fields of cotton you showed in the previous post.
Have a wonderful weekend.
A tickle and a pat to the doggies too.
