Hello, Style Fiends!

I would like to wish everybody a happy equinox! Today is the first official day of autumn in our neck of the woods – and I am so ready to start seeing my favorite color, on everything from trees, bags to rooms! It’s ORANGE season.

Many people may hesitate to sport the color orange with their outfit for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s too bold of a color for you, or the thought of having to go through your entire closet finding something to match it is intimidating you.. Let’s stop there!

I am going to show you where you can add some orange in your life!

Wallpaper is great way to have orange. This rich vibrant hue will make an excellent accent wall – for larger spaces, feel free to paint the whole room.
