Orange Crush

Who doesn't salivate over the blue-blood color of Hermes orange? It's regal and refined, but not showy or over-the-top. It's the perfect dose of color. And the best news: it's all about equal opportunity.

Here's the inspiration of adding a dash of orange, from the bowl of oranges or nectarines, to the orange shades and accent colors in the pillows:

And here's six, semi-affordable ways to bring it home:

1. CB2's orange formosa tray table (below) is not any, old TV tray, but it is only $49.2. Anthropologie's Ikat bowl (below) will have your friends complimenting your grandmother's china pattern. If only they knew, they could get it for $14.
3. It may not be gilt, but who ever said that orange can't be glamorous? This orange scroll mirror and its curves run around $1,000.

4. Red lacquer is so-- 2009. Why not buck the trend with a paint color is a subtly different shade and has the same effect? Try this orange side table for $199.

5. For $34, water coral and orange pillow (below) adds a hint of orange, just enough to tie together the color scheme.

6. Or go for orange lighting with Jonathan Adler's capri bottle lamp, retailing for $275.

7. For $410, Design Within Reach's side chair (below) is light and stackable making it a prudent addition and accent chair for a small space.

Now, orange you glad?
