Color Dose: Orange

Today, we welcome a new contributor to La Dolce Vita! Kelly, of the blog and stylish graphic design studio, Fabulous K will be guest posting once a month with a series on color, aptly named “Color Dose”. Today, we start off with the ever-chic hue of orange. Welcome to the LDV team, Kelly!

There used to be a time when my decor predominately consisted of white and gray. I’ve always adored color, it just wasn’t something I incorporated into my own home very much.  There’s no doubt that adding little pops of color to a space can completely change the look and feel, but some find it a bit intimidating. I’ve found that adding a colorful accessory, small or large, is a great way to start. As a contributor here at La Dolce Vita, my goal is to share accessories that can be added to your home for a dose of happy color. Right now, I am really loving orange hues, which feels modern and pairs well with neutrals.

Now tell me, does color intimidate you or do you embrace it?

  1. I can’t get enough orange at the moment. I definitely love color, but in interiors it can be tricky, ’cause you don’t want to tire of something too soon. I think your advice works well, adding a splash here and there.

  2. I would like to wish you, first of all, the greatest year, since so many of your dreams are about to come true and I truly wish you the best, eventhough I do not know you in person; but I guess that when a person decides to share a bit of her life for years with total strangers, and those on the other side decide to follow those flashes willingly, effortlessly and eagerly we kind of become friends. I´m from Portugal, I do not post very often but I follow your blog daily, anticipating with excitment what the news are going to be this time, never disappointing and always revigorated and inspired. Secondly I’d like to thank you for letting a door open for us, so that we could appreciate through time the way you’ve evolved into someone so inspiring, so creative, so meticulous, so spontaneous, but above all, so genuinely true to yourself. Thank you, for I have also grown with you. I’ll keep on coming here, visiting you, hoping that if you come to my country one day, I’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you personally, opening then the doors of my house to you and hoping that you’ll feel at ease, just like I do, everytime I come to your blog. Cheers to you doll! Keep on being very Happy! and i hope that one day you may have time to visit my blog – it would be an honor!
