Orange Accents Bring the Sunshine In!

Education & Training with Staged4more School of Home Staging

Warm weather inspires warm tones - and there isn't a better or brighter one than orange.  If I could pull orange lipstick off, Nars Outsider would be my choice.  Unfortunately, it doesn't complement my skin tone and I might resemble an Oompa Loompa.

Until there's a hue that make me look as bright as I feel on most summer days, I'll stick to home styling. Check out these Outsider inspired accents from HGTV:

It truly is! It's one of my favorite color. A great accent color for staging as well ;)

Cindy Lin - the above photo is a great example of using colour to its fullest potential.  I love the way the colours of the cushions are pulled from the stunning artwork.  Great example.  You could never look like an Oompa Loompa - maybe a Cutie Tootie?
