Orange in the Bedroom

It’s amazing how one simple change

 can sometimes change the look of a room.

I picked up this orange pillow at Homegoods the other day.

I thought it would be the perfect accessory

for my 10 year old’s room.

Since orange and blue are complementary colors

the pillow is the perfect accent in here.

And I love the way it looks against the blue and white.

 It even picks up the orangy tones of his Pottery Barn bed.

 So I added a football 

and a ceramic pumpkin he painted a few years ago…

And I think we are set for fall in here!

Now I have basically the whole rest of the house to tackle!

Have you added any orange to your decor?

Enjoy your day!

    I love orange! It's such a happy color. I love how you paired it with the blue in your son's room. It looks so sophisticated.

    Orange does add that pop of color needed sometimes! Love the navy, white and orange in the room. Very masculine! I have a large orange gourd and a pumpkin on my front porch…does that count?!

    It looks great. I too love how much one pillow and pop of color can change a space.
