Beautiful Color Combo: Blue & Orange

When a new season approaches I start thinking about a few touches around my house I can change or add too to fit the time of year. For summer I like refreshing colors and then for fall I like to incorporate a few of the lovely colors of the season: browns, oranges, yellows, plums, the list goes on and on.

This summer I got some pretty pale blue drapes for our living/sitting room and I really enjoyed them and was quite happy with picking that color because it goes with so much. I had thought about getting some different drapes for fall but have decided that I am going to incorporate some touches of orange and rust with the blue drapes. The colors are really pretty together and I will share some photos of the room when I am done. Until then, here are some stunning rooms with some pops of blue and orange! So many shades of blue can go with orange, a lighter paler blue, a deep dark midnight blue or turquoise. They all look great!

I have a zebra rug in the room that I am working on, so seeing this photo makes me know that it will work well! That's what I love about a zebra rug, it looks great in almost any room and all colors!!

And who says these fab color combos have to stop here, they look great on too! Check out what Ashley Olsen did . . . she took a simple, pretty orange dress and added this blue scarf! Fabulous I say, just fabulous!

Happy Friday and hope all of you have a wonderful, safe weekend!
