Orangery

Following up on yesterday's post on orange rooms, here is a room painted in Farrow & Ball Orangery. Created by D.C. interior designer Camille Saum for the D.C. Design House 2009, it is a refreshing change from the ubiquitous red in the dining room. This is another perfect example of how orange can be used in a more traditional elegant room. And head over to Chinoiserie Chic for more pictures of Sara Story's wonderful orange Chinoiserie bedroom.

Beth, I love this room. It's so restful and soft, yet very elegant. Always love your finds! XO

Anne-Thanks-I do think it is a great example of how people who are color shy, and you know who you are ;) , can keep a predominantly white and beige palette, but inject some color and life into the room.

This is a surprise - I never would have thought to put a grayish taupe with orange - but it works!

SF-As you know, I am not a graduate of the white, greige, beige school of interior design, and posted this primarily to show the wall color. Yet I do think it shows how to keep a neutral palette but liven it up a bit. I like the feel of it.

Hmmm....think you've schooled me. Prior to reading this post, I'm afraid I just would've labeled it "peach," with 80s interiors flashbacks!

MLHP-Farrow & Ball paints have a depth and richness that is hard to capture in a photograph and need to be seen in person. This is a lovely orange that would work in many settings. If you haven't seen their paints, go online and request a free color card-their color chart has real paint chips, not printed, so you can really see the colors.
