interiors: energizing orange

Yes to color therapy! Our living room recently got an update. I’ve always loved the burnt orange walls and neutral sofa with the blue oriental rug. But to freshen this room for summer, I focused on the windows. Those yellow silk drapes made me nervous — four floor-length panels. It was my first time sewing withย dupioni silk, but it was amazingly easy, and way more affordable to DIY. I also made new pillow covers (also a newbie at slip covers — an addictive project!) and made some table cloths, then turned my attention to the gallery wall.

I think it turned out great. Whenever we walk into this space, it feels fresh and vibrant. The kids practice their violin here, and it has become our favorite reading room.

This palette just makes me happy.
