Orange you glad we are having a discussion about orange pillows?

MAYBE I JUST WANT TO PROVE THAT YOU CAN BLOG ABOUT ANYTHING!

or perhaps, I need to confess, my brain can't handle any thing more complicated than a discussion of what color pillows to put on the couch?

I used to think what color pillow goes on the couch was a simple decision until, I decided that I needed to be more in touch with the times and the trends of home design.  A perusal of current home and interior design and decor magazines and catalogs revealed that orange decor was all the rage as there was orange furniture  and orange decor items.. 

 

 

I was beginning to think well orange it is and orange is what is will surely give a couch a little zing. I can help you save money now, because I am here to tell you that you  don't need to invest in orange pillows. You can have mine!  I bought two bright orange pillows and got them at Pier One, so you  won't think that I was just a skimming down through the sidewalk sales and got tempted by cheap orange pillows!

You see, my pillows are big fluffy, bright orange, and maybe that is what is wrong, they are too bright.  I almost invested in two orangy/rust colored pillows too, but I got a grip and ahold of myself. If the two bright orange pillows dont ever seem to look right on the couches I have, what makes me think that rusty orange will look better?

I hate to admit it.  I don't really care for orange.  Therefore I won't put orange pillows on my couch or stage with them on somebody elses couch.

Yes - this is the first orange pillow blog I've seen!  Not too sure I like them, either.  I'm more of a green pillow guy.

Richard, a green pillow is good!

Shelton, orange pillows got you to comment, smile!    

Cynthia,  yes orange is cheery, that is why I thought they would be useful for staging.  Maybe the next house!

hi Bev ~ orange pillows photograph beautifully and as long as you have another orange decor item or two in place around the room, really draws buyers' attention to what you're highlighting -- so feel free to use them, even if you don't personally like that color!  Tying the pillow color on the sofa to a color in the art above the sofa is another way to make it look "put together."

Hi Maureen,  I like your idea of tying the pillow color with art above the sofa.   I think that is why I originally bought the orange pillows is that they sure look bright in the photos, but you are right need something else orange in the room to hang onto!

Beverly,

I love orange pillows.  I did a staging with orange and teal pillows and even a rug that had the same colors...the house sold in one day and the buyers wanted to buy all the furniture, rugs and pillows.  It works for me...maybe give those orange pillows another try.  I enjoyed this post!

Linda, thanks for your comment and I still have my orange pillows, and when I look at them I think of this blog and smile a bit.  Orange is a cheerful color.  I am warming up to them!
