Orange Loves Aqua, Too!

Check out my giveaway - WELCOME vinyl from Wonderfully Wordy. TWO winners, so what are you waiting for? Enter by midnight July 25!



So I've been sharing the loveliness that is aqua blue - sharing that love with Martha Stewart, of course. Yesterday I showed you how beautiful aqua and red are together.
Today I wanted to show you how my absolute favorite color holds up with aqua - ORANGE!
Opposites on the color wheel, blue and aqua look fabulous together!

I. want. this. skirt. Don't you LOVE IT???


I am really into pendants, and I love the simple geometric pattern!


This is so cute - I love the striped tie closure. It's a great contrast to that cute and modern floral.


I would gladly replace my tomato pincushion with this little lovely - I think it looks great with chocolate brown.

Love the cheerful color and shape of these flowers. Orange makes me SO HAPPY!

I want this orange patterned star, but check out the clever fish hanging with the SHELL BUBBLES. That is awesome!


All of these beautiful colors do make me want to sew something!


I love this - I HEART birds, and I think I could put something like this together. Cute - cute - cute.


First of all, I want French doors in my bedroom (won't happen in the fifth wheel) - LOVE THAT FABRIC!


I want a ton of these tins. A TON!!!


This is not a subtle light wash of aqua, but it's gorgeous. This bedroom is also about the size of my entire upstairs - and about 5 times as bright!

Have I convinced you how great these colors are together? ORANGE you enjoying all this aqua beauty? What colors make YOU happy?

  5. Following you back :0) I love your idea of paring down. It's a good thing to do regardless of your goals. Too much clutter adds to the confusion...lol.

    You are right, aqua and orange are lovely.

    All the very best,
