Orange has always been my favorite color. I need to restrain myself from using it too much. For a house under construction I think I got it right in the dining room and stair well, but the powder room . . . . when I figure out how to tone it down I will.

I totally love orange! Always have. And just like Pangaea I have used it so often both personally and for client's jobs that I now worry new clients will think I'm not color vast. But mango for me is always calming and yes out there without getting too much in your face. Here's one of my favorite ante-rooms.

Peach, Mango, Orange whatever you want to call it it brightens up a space and generates light and shadows. It constantly changes with the light in the room. Whatever you do-use it somewhere I know you will love it.
