Color: Vibrant Orange

One of the many brights to appreciate.

We've been watching the steady rise of popularity for bright colors for some months now, and I am so happy to seek inspiration for my own wardrobe and space from several different sources. We can look to nature — to fruit — or even to graphic design — to printed business cards, packaging and stationary (just look at those die cuts and beautiful envelopes!) — to furnishings — simple glass furnituremakeup and fashion — in lipstick, hats, etc. — and then of course, there are some inspiring people, such as the beautiful Hanneli, who pulls off brights in such an effortless way, you cannot help but be inspired...
