Orange Accents

Since it's starting to feel like Fall, I am seeing a lot more orange now. Whether it's the orange pumpkins, orange pansies and mums or more orange accessories in the store. Here are some orange decor inspirations.

This orange door looks great with these green pots from Things She Loves 

I don't think I have ever seen an orange door in person, yet her is another one from Simple Dwellings

Ferns can be found all over in your interiors, from vintage framed prints (My fave!), to fabrics, or even using the fern leaf in a vase, on a table setting or using fern colored paints for your rooms!

Lamp Finials

Lamp finials are an easy, inexpensive and non-committal way to add a pop of color to the room. I love finding unique lamp finials, from a hand carved Chinese inspired bone one I have on a blue and white ginger jar inspired lamp, to a sea urchin I have on a fun kelly green lamp in the bedroom! Here are some fun and colorful lamp finials I found! What is your favorite lamp finial?
Turquoise hue would look great against a black lampshade Chic Shop

Fun pop of pink could be cute with some brown Chic Shop

Light green stone would go great in a neutral room Chic Shop

If you decide to collect them and not have enough lamps for all, you can display them on a mirrored tray

Just a reminder how fun lamp finials are!

Striped Walls

I checked out the blog of a new visitor of mine today, Vanessa at Design Dreams Japan and saw that she painted her walls with bold stripes.... a feat I admire! I first read about this DIY tutorial about 2 years ago at Young House Love. I went out and bought the frog tape, already had the paint, but still have not attempted the striped walls look. They look great and I think it would look great in one of my bathrooms in neutral colors. Have you tried striping your walls yet? What 2 colors would you or did you choose?
