~ orange obsession

By now, even if you've just started visiting my blog, you must be getting the signals. I have an obsession and it's called the color orange. Sometimes I forget just how taken I am with the color... I snapped a couple shots of these orange tulips last week... I love when they are bendy like this...
While making dinner last night, I noticed the color of these flowers... roses from my favorite florist, Whole Foods. Apparently I couldn't decide on just one shade of orange, I had to have both...
 I even have oranges and tangelos in the fruit basket to match!
I am also a magnet to the color green... what color calls to you?


I am photographing three inspired homes this week! I plan to post the first this Friday. I am so excited to see what's on the inside of these beautiful homes I've always admired from the outside...

Love clusters of flowers, especially on my kitchen island. Never get tired of them. The parrot tulips are beautiful. xx's

Orange is a favorite of mine right now too, and the roses are beautiful!! For everyday living I'm such a fan of a neutral palette...so calm and relaxing.

I love your blog and your post! We seem to share the same colour palette. I adore ochré, terracotta, brown-red and of course orange. I just took some pics of my birthday flowers this morn as well, orange roses!! I want to team them with some purple cabbages. Will show you the result on my blog, which I finallly got going! www.tasselsandtwigs.blogspot.com
