Decorating With Orange Can Be An Awesome Treat!

The color orange is the most recognizable  symbol that fall is in full bloom. 

It’s been said that Orange is the happiest color in the world.  It’s the color of saffron, pumpkins and apricots.  It’s also said to symbolize enthusiam, creativity and determination.  Wow what a color!

Orange was a hot color in the fall fashion collections from top designers and it’s a color trending in home decor too.  If you want a statement making room there’s no better color than orange.  

It’s not for the faint of heart because orange in a room can be brilliantly bold.  What I personally love about using orange as a home decorating and fashion choice is this:

Orange is beautifully original, and orange exudes confidence and warmth.

In honor of Halloween and the boldness of this brilliant color I hope you enjoy this journey into fall’s brilliant orange for decorating and fashion.
