Are You Obsessed With Orange?


Are you obsessed with orange? Is this spunky, cheerful, and zesty colour the one you love the most? Does it find its way into your interiors or your wardrobe without a moments thought?



Let's see what my favourite book about colour (Colors For Your Every Mood - Discover Your True Decorating Colors by Leatrice Eiseman) tells us about people and the colour orange.

To summarize...

If Orange Is Your Favourite Colour: You work and play hard. You are adventurous and enthusiastic. You're good natured, expansive, and extroverted with a disposition as bright as your favourite colour. You like to be with people, your ideas are original, and you are strongly determined. You are more agreeable than agressive!

Orange people can be fickle. Their newest friend is often their best friend (until the next one comes along). Orange lovers aren't always the best mates, as they are always looking for new worlds and challenges to conquer. Success in business can come easily to this gregarious, charming person.



If You Dislike Orange: Life is definitely not all fun and games to the rejecter of orange. Nothing flamboyant appeals to you. You dislike too much partying, hilarity, loud laughter, showing off, and obvious intimacy. As a result you may be difficult to get to know, if not a loner. You prefer a few genuine close friends to a large circle of acquaintances; and once you've made a friend, you've made a friend for life.



What do you know?: Do you love orange?

What do you think?: Do you fit the orange profile?

I love bits and pieces of orange in little bursts around my home... and I see parts of myself in both the 'like' and 'dislike' descriptions! (All the good bits of course - lol.)

  1. I love orange as an accent color! It's so bright and cheery :)

    And I find myself fitting in to a few of the likes and dislikes...which I guess makes sense!

  2. Hello from your newest follower - I just found your blog through your Decorating Forum ad! I have to say I don't LOVE orange but it's a great colour that I don't use often enough. That's all about to change when I put my orange rug down in the living room though!

  3. Personally I am obsessed with finding the perfect Orange. It varies pending on its environment for instance in fabrics and accent walls the Orange has to be rich and deep perhaps even slightly infused with red to suggest complexity and warmth, but in an outdoor setting I prefer lighter oranges with more yellow, playfull, carefree, casual. My wife on the other hand doesn't care for Orange like I do, sue doesn't hate it, but she doesn't has the obsession for it like I do.

    Off to hunt the perfect Orange.
