When I saw this article I knew I had to comment. Up until I recieved my BHG mag that highlighted the color orange in very pretty hues, I was adamantly anti-orange! I kept getting 1970's flashbacks of my mother's orange and lime green livingroom! Yuk! I clipped out that page of orange paint colors from my BHG mag and put it in my home decor notebook. I recently varnished our beadboard walls and ceilings in our foyer and they gave an orange cast. I had told my hubby that I would be painting if that happened. But, I actually like it! And refinishing my knotty pine kitchen cupboards with clear varnish instead of the old shellac gave them a nice fresh orange cast. Okay, I won't disparage orange ever again. Well, I still won't wear that color, tho. I noticed in the picture that you have featured that powder blue and brown goes rather nicely with that orange color on the walls. I love chocolate brown and powder blue together and the orange is nice with it. Thanks for the link and this article. I'm going to paint my sewing room in orange now!
