Mad about Orange

I'm absolutely mad about orange as an accent right now. Who knows when this interest started, but I guess I really caught on when I found a beautiful set of pillows at Pottery Barn with Rachael a few weeks ago.

The pattern: Tea Garden Toile. I loved them, but decided against purchasing them at the time because I was afraid M might think I was a little out of my mind. I could hear him thinking "Little dancing men with parasols?!?" I know, I know. It is a bit much, but I love love love them. So last Monday evening, after lots of thought, I did it. I ordered them online. They arrived on Friday, and I couldn't be happier. Now I just need... a new set of sheets, bedskirt, headboard, mattress, and beautitful duvet. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all...

While thinking about all this orange, I realized that many of the photos I adore have hints of orange. It seems to give that burst of energy that we all need right now!
