Let's Do Color-Spring Living Room

I have really been loving my white walls and neutral color scheme, but I think we need a little cheerful color for spring.

 I have a current crush on Tangerine/Orange and have been using it all over the house.

 If you missed my last post I showed you how to make your pillows do "double duty" by being reversible and -

 how to make your "faux's look real".

I love me some color don't you?

Be sure to check back on Thursday to see how my ORC Master Bedroom Closet is coming along.  It is starting to look good.

  8. I love, love, love the mix of tangerine and black you have pulled in. What I really love is you have kept it fresh by using the flowers and the prints on the fabrics. Orange and black can be tricky because no one wants to look Halloween in the spring. But you have managed to pull it off and still keep it spring. I can hardly wait to see your closet tomorrow! So excited!

  9. Oh Marty, your spring colors could not have been sweeter! I love your orange, tangerine colors, the touch of black is stunning! Wha a spicy spring addition to your beautiful room!

    Have a wonderful day!

  10. Love your spring colors Marty, such a pretty room!

  11. Marty I love the pop of orange you have in your living room! Brings a smile. Thanx for partying at my place.

  12. Tangerine.....such a wonderful, cheerful color. You have the NEATEST home in blogland! So sparkly clean all the time! So beautiful!!

  13. This is so bright and cheerful. Right now, it is SNOWING outside my window, so bright and cheerful is exactly what I need to see :) Whenever I visit your blog, I'm always amazed at the talent that you have for making a space look beautiful. I love the lamp on your end table matches a floor lamp that I have in my own living room, but I've been looking for a table lamp since I got it.

    I'd love if you'd be willing to share this today at my link party. Have a great day!

  17. Love navy and orange/tangerine, the room looks fabulous, I wonder if this might work bringing some orange into my room for winter as we are heading towards it here in New Zealand.

  18. The tangerine adds lots of zest!! Really pretty!
