Orange You Glad You Like The Color Orange?

So, that project I mentioned the other day we were starting? Well, it involves a lot of orange. And my husband. The very visual, creative type husband. ;) And since this is his room, I obliged and said “fine,” maybe even after a few temper tantrums occurred.

But when a man asks for orange, by golly, you give him ORANGE.

Not rusty orange, not red orange, BRIGHT ORANGE!! Can you sense my enthusiasm? :)

Sure I’ve painted our laundry room in an orange, more coral, but that’s a tiny room. This room is ummm…bigger. It really is a good thing I at least like the color orange!

So let’s see how this goes. Wish me luck? Wish us luck? Pray for our marriage?

  1. As wives we forget we can’t always have our way with décor. It’s the art of compromise. It’s what makes a good marriage! ;) Can’t wait to see what you come up with. I’m sure you’ll make it beautiful!

  3. I love the color orange.

  4. I too have orange in our bedroom which is quite large – but what I did was paint ONE wall the orange and the other three are neutral – the wall our bed is on is orange – we have vaulted ceilings in our bdroom and it turned out beautiful – I knew the entire room would be overwhelming. I first used an animal print comforter and solid brown curtains with heavy texture but recently changed out the animal prints with a neutral linen color coverlet and used orange and a soft turquoise with a little green mixed in the various prints and a different throw at foot of the bed. I also lighted it up with new lamps with burlap textured shades and changed up the artwork and used the same soft turquoise color curtains. My hubs loves it! It is actually quite relaxing with the softer color scheme for spring/summer. We both wanted orange but not a solid orange room. I got a Benjamin Moore orange – it is lovely and everyone loves the accent color wall.

  5. I overdosed on orange – like the SW 6887 on that chip – in high school (early 70s) and still cringe in the orage paint chip section so I’m of no help here! Look forward to seeing the completed project and your hubs will be happy!

  6. You will be fine! It is always paintable! And since that is his room; don’t go in it! HAHA! Oh, that that will be one less room you have to decorate during Halloween and Thanksgiving!
