Frosted Orange

No we are not at the Varsity and since I am being truthful I might as well admit I have never even had a famous Varsity Frosted Orange. The HandyMan loves them and so does my Sister but not me LittleMissNeverTriesAnything but I not afraid to admit it :)

Not Today :)

Anywho, this post is not about a drink nor a restaurant(even though everyone should visit the Varsity at least once in their life - if only for the ambiance.) Nope this post this about how I can not get the color Orange out of my head these days. If you pair it with the color Gray then I am even more over the moon about it. There is something about those two colors together than looks so good. One Bright - One Plain yet as a pair they both ROCK!

During the recent Ikea Adventure I kept seeing O & G in every section. They had an orange sofa with gray pillows, they had some fabulous gray dinner plated with orange napkins on a table, they had a gray bedspread with an orange throw tossed across the bottom. EVERYWHERE I tell ya!! Since that trip I have been on the lookout for O&G rooms and/or accessories. I am determined to have some O&G in my house soon.

I also want to clarify that I am not late to the O & G game -- I was just taking the long way around and enjoying all the scenery along the way. :)

What are your favorite colors of the moment? How do you incorporate them in your home?
I know that Beth @ The Stories of A to Z is having a major Pink Crush this week - drop by and check out the beauties she found.


  1. You know I am loving grey and yellow! I can't get it out of my head. I am loving that pillow in your post. Also - the are opening a Varsity in Dawsonville...we will have to go!

  2. I just found your blog, I'm kind of a DIY blog junkie!!

    The hubby and I recently finished our mudroom/ laundry room and I painted the room gray with an orange accent wall! It looks great, well, I think it does. The accessorizing, my fav part of a project, hasn't really started. I have lot's of ideas swimming in my head, though!!
