Color Update: Complimentary Blue and Orange

There's such a great mix of genres in this transitional space: ethnic, contemporary, traditional
 I love how the rug pulls it all together

sky blue wall, crisp white beadboard wainscot, slipcovered white sofa with playful, orange patterned side pillows = cottage chic!

Notice how great the orange and blue look with rustic wood in the pictures below...

the rustic bench is the perfect touch

great with the rustic coffee table and mirror

blue walls, orange accents, incredible rustic dining

neutral room enhanced with orange and blue accents (notice sunburst mirrors - big trend!)

bright orange and blue accents in the nursery are a welcome alternative to princess-pink and baby-blue

sophisticated, smoky, dark blue with a pop of persimmon is masculine but soft

looks great with contrasting zebra print

great quilt!

earthy oranges and soft sky blues combine to create a naturally inviting living room environment

Given the recent popularity of the color Orange in home decor, I thought it would be appropriate to share some Outstanding design images that showcase the Outrageous color with its favorite compliment.  It can be challenging to combine warm and cool colors in a complimentary scheme, but these interiors beg to differ. Orange is fun, playful and optimistic. If you're feeling blue, may I suggest adding a bit of Orange in your life?
