Jen - just awesome collage of photos! I totally agree with you about white. I love splashes of bright and pastel colours against white. I've also noticed that for some reason, the combination of - white, baby blue - robin's blue goes with practically every colour.

p.s. I always look forward to your Color of the Day posts.

Thank you for visiting my blog :)
I LOVE orange! Well, I love bright colors, but I have been on a orange kick the past year! Beautiful post!

orange is a color that is supposed to make one hungry... the dining or kitchen would be appropriate; however, those stair cases are amazing!!!!!

love those stairs. thanks for your comment on my blog- i never know if anyone is reading?? :)

i'm obsessed with orange too. i'm going to redo my living room this summer and i'm trying to find inspiration...there are so many things i like but i don't know what's "me," do you know what i mean? i never commit to anything because i'm afraid i wont like it...but there's nothing wrong with changing it up, right?
i've lived in my current address for 6 years and all that's on my living room wall is a giant clock, so sad.
i'm totally adding your blog to my reader!
