Orange and Navy: A Perfect Fit

When we are away from things for a while, we tend to forget how important they are~

Here's my list from last Friday:

1. My sweet client "Jane"


2. Her stunning orange armoire

Last year, we put the touches on "Jane's" living room by adding
soft draperies, but what impressed me the most when I started working with her 
was the color combination she had going of...
orange, navy and cream!

Friday, we had a visit to pick out granite but we chatted most of the time instead:)

Sorry I don't have good pics, but the colors are so pretty in person!
Take a peek at the blue velvet stacked ottoman between the two chairs-
so cute:)

Another view... I loved the orange in the rug:)

My close up Iphone pic of the armoire- sigh

It is placed in her foyer directly across of the living room...
definitely a focal point in the room.

We tend to skip over the color combo of orange and navy when
thinking about designing our interiors, but it works!

Here's proof:

This entire room could be moved into "Jane's" house!

The weird part about this photo is that when I was searching for orange and navy rooms,
this pic popped up... which was featured by Cassie of Hi Sugarplum blog...
who earlier in the day contacted me since she lives around the corner.


Cassie is very talented at DIY projects, so check out her blog...
can't wait to meet her:)

Striking combo found on the blog Be Colorful

Another winner found on Cassie's blog

(my son has this lamp found at Target...
ages ago).  His bedroom is orange and navy and I
will get some pics when he cleans it up I can:)

Great inspiration board from Chasing Davies

Adorable plates from LA Plates featured by Cassie:)

And to finish out, I have coveted this chair since I saw it in "Jane's" house
a few years ago when we met.

If I snuck in and painted it navy, do you think she would notice?

Before I start my Tuesday, thank you again "Jane" for the yummy tuna croissants,
refreshing Chardonnay and delicious conversation.

I LOVE MY JOB and the people it brings into my life xxxooo

Until next time,


  1. I love orange and navy! I just did a living room in these colors, and it is soooo pretty!!!

  2. So funny that my post came up in the search!!! Obviously I love the combo!

    your blogs really nice, keep it up! I'll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later. Cheers

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
