color story: crushing on orange interiors / sfgirlbybay

just like the california orange groves i love the smell of so much, i’ve got a crush on orange this week’s color story. but this orange is a very modern, hip version of the bold, bright color. orange always reminds me of the mod 60’s and 70’s (our house growing up had mid-century modern orange velvet lounge chairs in the living room) and its retro vibes always make me smile. it’s just a very feel-good color, and in the right dose is just the kind of vitamin c i can live with. not too much, mind you, but if orange is your color, have at it — it’s definitely a mood booster! and in this crazy world, we could all use a bit of that cheerfulness right about now.
