What should happen to catch my eye? Two 18" ikat accent pillows in precisely the shade of orange in our master bedroom. I mean precisely the color, shade, saturation, absolutely-identical-color-orange we have as an accent in the room.
I stood there staring at them for awhile and turning them over in my hands and then I thought, what the heck? If I get them home and hate them I can take them back. But I don't hate them. I love them. I think they tie the chair and our bedding together even better. I love the layers of color and texture on the bed. The moment I set them on our bed I thought, "Yes! That's what it needed." Plus...isn't there something luxurious-feeling about flopping down onto a mountain of pillows?
Tangerine was such an outside-the-box color for me but I really love the pop of bright and after five years am still really glad I went outside my comfort zone in here. I think bedrooms are a great place to play with color!
