Orange and Cottage

I know that the color of year according to Pantone is Tangerine in my mind its a bright orange.  Not one that I currently have in my house and not one that really goes with my style.  Or so I thought. 

My style is most definitely "cottage style" and maybe a touch on the traditional side. I am not sure that orange would work with "me".  But before I jumped to conclusions I decided to search and see what I could find that was orange and "cottagey". 

There was much more out there than I thought and I liked a lot of it.  Maybe not enough to redo a room in my house, but I liked it nonetheless.

I really liked this living room with its touches of orange combined with fuchsia.  Just enough I think!!

This room is so very coastal.  I loved all the texture and just small pops of color.

The orange and periwinkle pillows were what drew me in here.

This one is by far my favorite.  It looks so calm and serene.  Now, this room is one I may recreate!!

I should add that all photos are from pinterest.  It was fun to see how I could make this color work with my style!!

What do you think?

  1. You're right - I don't often think of orange and cottage style going together, but you found some good examples. I did a post on decorating with orange awhile ago and I just had a look to see if any were cottagey. I think photos #5, 10, and 11 all fit that category and have orange in them. I especially love #10. Here's the link:
