Hi and welcome to our Blue and Orange Fall Living Room. I carried on the aqua and orange in here from the foyer because the colors just make me happy and smile. There’s something soothing and refreshing about these 2 colors when paired with gray, pops of white, and dark browns. You can see our fall dining room here and halloween-fall foyer here.
I love colors, pattern and texture when decorating our house. I begin with big impact- like the rug, then go from there. I try to keep other accents pieces neutral or in the same color palette, and use accessories to add big impact.
The oversized clock is an example of the “punch” of impact.
It ties in with the dark color of the chair legs, curtain rods, tv, and fireplace.
The lampshades are another “pop” of pattern/color. I love how dramatic they are- they add just the right funkiness to the room.
The navy shades pick up the cobalt in Boomer’s dog bed.
The orange in all of the accessories spring to life against the aqua, and give the room a certain playfulness/whimsy.
I borrowed the “love” pillow from the foyer to accent the chair, and tie in the orange in the pumpkin. The black and white striped basket also ties in with foyer and the clock.
Here’s the view from the foyer side- below.
Here’s the view from the kitchen side. The barstools carry on the same warm gray undertones to keep things neutral. This is one of Boomer’s favorite places to sleep during the day- under that chair.
I am writing this post as well as the foyer post with a very heavy heart. We were flooded by Hurricane Harvey in Katy, TX (Houston area) a month ago, and all of these pictures were taken beforehand. My first blog post of the dining room was published the Friday the storm hit the TX gulf coast, and this has been my first chance to post these other 2 rooms.
Our house will never look like this again, so it tears me apart to post these pictures. Please pray for our area as we rebuild our homes and our community. I will post pictures of our recovery/rebuilding as it happens. Thanks for your understanding.
Have a VERY HAPPY FALL!!!! Love & Hugs 🙂
