From the Runway: Dreamsicle Design

Earlier this week, we showed you outdoor dreamsicle design featuring Elaine Smith pillows. Today, I’m sharing some dreamy products I would use if I was going to incorporate this trend in on of my designs. Thanks to the University of Texas and all its die-hard fans there’s plenty of burnt orange in Austin, but over the past 10-to-15 years this color has been underutilized in interior design.

Bright and bold colors like orange, red and yellow were very prominent in the ’60s and ’70s. In the early ’80s those trends began to fade and by the 2000s were replaced by cooler colors like greens, blues and soft silver. Until recently, it was difficult to use orange as a stand out color in a room, because there were not enough available coordinating accessories and fabrics to create a cohesive look.

Now orange and white products are everywhere I look! I love the newly released orange products below, especially the zebra rug by iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. Comment to let us know what you think of this trend! Would you use bold orange as a pop of color in your home?
