Orange and brown has long been one of my favorite color combinations. This combo graces my home and my clothing and my jewelry. It is a down-to-earth, yet bright, combination that constantly reminds me of my favorite season.

I was married on a Fall day. I picked this time of year because of the beauty of the colors, and the crispness in the air. And, it was our fortune that the Pastor forgot to prompt us for our first kiss: we had our first kiss beneath the gloriously changing fall leaves.

{I just noticed for the first time ever how the telephone pole makes a cross above our heads. I am going to be giddy about that for a while.}

I will definitely share more of our wedding pictures with you in the future {we do have an anniversary coming up, after all!}. And at our wedding, the colors of Fall dominated the scene. I have always loved the colors of Fall.

Orange and Brown rise to the top of the list.

Enjoy this feast of a glorious color combination. I can’t wait to hear which one inspires you the most:


This photo makes me feel alive. The smell of crisp Fall leaves defies explanation.











Orange and Brown is smart and dapper combination. Don’t miss that splash of pale-blue contrast behind that tie. Oh, how I would love to see that tie on my handsome man.













This room is exquisite with drama. Orange zebra stripes and glossy orange accessories are center stage with a muddy brown backdrop. However, that dramatic chandelier upstages them all. Now, that is some high-gloss glamour that I could love!














And now for the farmhouse simplicity of orange and brown. Just a simple touch of orange, amidst brown pin-striping, surrounded by cream and symmetry. And oh, those sheets!



















For the dramatic color lovers out there, this is a no-messy-roundy way to use orange and brown. Certainly one can’t miss the turquoise stripes on the ceiling. There is that blue contrast again, like on Mr. Handsome, above.











This clutch makes my heart sing. That is all.











and more blue contrast. Doesn’t this photo make you smile? Color can do that, no? Satin tuxedo shorts in brown, and bright orange everywhere else.












You know I am a sucker for gorgeous drapes, and this room calls to me! There is that zebra stripe again.








A more traditional take on orange and brown. I love the easy addition of fresh oranges to add brilliance to the color scheme.











This stunning hallway has a bold color of orange {don’t miss how the light switches are orange too!}, that is framed with blackish-brown edging. The botanical art is stunning in its symmetrical form. Brown is ever present in the leaves, the butterflies, and the natural woods in the stairs and furniture.








Which of these rooms speaks to you the most?

Can you find a way to bring some gorgeous fall colors into your space?
