orange and white

Orange living room with orange lounge

Orange just seems to be able to transmit energy, happiness, lightness and bubbly-ness. Don’t know if my personality is energetic enough… but it’s such a happy colour. Maybe when I buy my own place, I’ll empty the hall closet, paint it orange, hang a Moroccan lantern and put a simple white armchair and call it my happy-space!

    wow! Great rooms. I was sad that I ran out of rooms to paint, because orange was the only color I didn’t get to use. :( I might try to use it in the basement some day. Thanks for the inspiration.
