Guest Post: Orange And Blue Decor Inspiration...

 Hello Everyone!

Today I'm delighted to welcome Joanna to my blog. Here she will share some of her fabulous inspiration for decorating with gorgeous orange and blue tones in the home! Orange is one of my favourite colours this year so I hope you all enjoy:)

Hi! I’m Joanna, a guest blogger for Arcadian Lighting, a terrific online source for light fixtures and lighting ideas. I love my job. I spend every day searching the web for the most beautiful interior design images and ideas to share with blog readers like you. Today, my post is about the lovely combination of hues—orange and blue. This pair has been trending lately and looks as if it will be around for awhile. I hope you enjoy the post!

Orange and Blue Decor

This is a mellow space decorated all in orange and blue from the sofa to the picture frame on the right.

I love the upholstery in this living room. The chair and the carpet are lovely together and the gallery of prints brings all of the colors together.

The dog portrait in this room is so cute! Not just that, it pulls all of the colors (orange and blue) together and creates a focal point.

Orange and Blue Decor

An Asian-inspired master suite boasts orange and blue in its own sophisticated way. The mural above the bed is feminine and whimsical.

Another gorgeous bedroom gets its own splash of orange and blue in differing shades. The pendant light pulls the pattern from the wall wallpaper to the ceiling adding height to the space.

A subdued version of orange and blue is nevertheless sophisticated. The walls have an almost metallic sheen to them.

A peaceful combination of orange and blue grace this contemporary space. I love the contemporary seascape.

Orange and blue make for the perfect combo in this charming room. Love how the striped rug picks up the colors of the chest and sofa. The little light fixture is so cute. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

    PS: today I am going to the post office to pick up the candle.. can't wait!!

  2. Lovely decors. I love these colors together too. Those 2 bedroom are so much fun. And I would love to have such a nice office-library : )

    1. Yes a bright airy office/library would be lovely:)

  3. I especially love the orange and blue combination in the first room and the last two (gorgeous rug!) I'm so pleased with the orange I added in my kitchen - such a cheerful colour. Have a good week.

  4. I'm delighted you are pleased with your kitchen:)
