Re: Light Sofa, Shades of Orange LR

I always liked muted colors, but during my last reno, I went bold.  Although I don't have these exact colors, they're in the same family.  Never thought I'd love them, but I do.  My kitchen is pumpkin with cream cabinets.  My LR/DR has a cream sofa with bold golds and greens.  I have chocolate floors, so it all pops.  

 

I'm loving this room.  Thanks for sharing.

I am normally not a curtain person, but these make the room.

 

Happy colors, great furniture. This room makes me smile.

Like it. And this coming from one that would never do a white or cream sofa EVER!!

 

Like that floral/bowl on the table. Adds texture.

Those small stools have a lot of interest to them, like those too.

 

I would however make a few changes, like that lamp for one.

And, would of used a tad lighter shade for the drapery rods/rings too.

Re: Light Sofa, Shades of Orange LR

My youngest daughter’s favorite color is orange.  Her house is decorated with orange here and there. 

 

She’d love this!  In fact, it reminds me a little ( on a smaller and cheaper scale) of her living room.

 

She ( luckily) inherited my late husband’s sense of style and decorating.  He decorated and designed our entire house!  I was the labor.  I did the painting, staining of wood, etc.  It was the opposite of what usually happens and it worked perfectly for us!  Ha!

I must be changing because I never liked orange in home decor but I like this.

I agree that the curtain rods should be lighter.

I love it

The curtain rods remind me of eyeliner, it's bold but necessary, anything else would disappear.  You wear eyeliner for definition

 

I've found that colors I naturally avoid can be loved in the right SHADE.   I gravitate toward cool blues & greens, so if I find an ORANGE with a cool undertone, I can live with it.   And I love bold.    Not bright, but bold.   I had to learn a lot about color when I bought my house 15 years ago.    There was wallpaper everywhere.   It all came down & the entire house was painted.    Ourselves
