Color Combination: Orange & Navy Blue

Welcome back! Hope you all had a super weekend! The weather has been insanely HOT here, like 106 degrees....I walk out & I'm slowly roasting. It's crazy...

Something else that's HOT these days is color. I'm seeing a resurgence of bright & neon colors all over the web..... so it's safe to say, color is VERY much 'IN' right now.  From home decor, to artwork to fashion....color is everywhere!
 
Two colors I've always loved TOGETHER are navy blue & orange.  These colors are always beautiful if done right...meaning, I don't think it can be pulled off by just anyone. It takes SKILL & vision to create harmony with these colors. 
I came across this cottage on Style at Home that I thought did it PERFECTLY!! 

Don't you think?
 





And you? Do you like the blue & orange combination?

ooh, throughout the house, I love. So beachy and fresh. I spy a Jim Dine print on the wall as well, where the girls are running. Too fab.

OMG! This is sooo pretty! And look at those adorable girls! I wish I was so brave to continue the color scheme throughout the house, it looks wonderful! And I like that it`s still not over-done and fresh!

Obsessed of course! How can you not love them? With all the white to off set both colors, amazing!

This is the color combo in my living room! Mostly navy/gray/silver/white/tan with orange/peach as an accent. Really pops. Loving the piping on the upholstery here.

Just had to let you know that I love this room so much that I'm using it as the inspiration for my bedroom in my new apartment.

P.S. I've told everyone I know who's currently decorating about your blog. I love it!
