The coldest time of the year – and the interiors are glowing in orange. I was listening to Mom-2-Mom radio show last night and their guest Lisa Young was giving great decorating tips on the show. One of the tips was that orange is the trendy decorating color of this winter. You can easily get the trendy orange look without breaking the bank with a few easy tips and product finds. Get some Vitamin C for your home and don’t let the cold weather bother you – enjoy the warmth inside.

1. Wall decals are a great way to decorate trendy! Stick them on the wall and peel them off when the next trend comes along. Orange Polka Dot Wall Decals ($8.99 for 25) will pop from your white walls! 2. Get some inexpensive black frames and change the picture when you change the decorating theme. Use post cards, photos or even wallpaper, gift wrap or decorative papers from craft stores to get your unique look. I like photos, and this bike photo with orange background by ScarletBeautiful2 ($9) really caught my eye. 3. Kitchen is one of the easiest places to decorate by season or trend. Just change towels, get some new pot holders or get the daily utensils or dinnerware in the color of the season and swap them when the next one comes along. I like having colorful everyday items, and this orange Calypso Colander (sale price $15.99) looks awesome & gives a nice splash of color on the top of your counter. 4. Get some orange candles, some orange napkins, and fill a glass bowl full of oranges and you have a dinner table decorations in the trendy orange. The Ember candles ($0.79-$14) are from Pier 1. 5. The same ideas work for your trendy orange bathroom too. Use wall decals, framed pictures and candles to get some orange in your bathroom and finish it with plush new Tommy Hilfiger Towels (sale price $7.99).

1. Inhabit Living pillows ($60) bring nice color and get either subtle orange print or the propeller in sunshine print with bolder orange. The best thing is that you can mix and match so many their other products – or just get the pillows to get the trendy orange look. 2. Moorish Tile Rug in Clementine Orange (sale prices $79.99 – $99.99) is on sale at Pottery Barn. I am a huge fan of Pottery Barn rugs, and used to stock up when ever I saw nice ones on sale. With three kids and a dog, our rugs get their fair share of use and I have always been pleased with Pottery Barn’s rugs. This Moorish Tile Rug would make trendy color statement in almost any space of your home. 3. Alessi’s Alessandro Corkscrew ($88) gives your orange color splash, and pops nicely on your countertop – but when the orange color trend is over, it’s easy just to move inside your cabinet and you’ll have something fun and functional to keep even after you are done with orange decorating trend. 4. To get nice warm orange in your bedroom, check out Marimekko Tamara bedding (sale prices starting at $59.95) at Crate & Barrel – also on sale. The print goes well both in traditional or contemporary homes, and is high quality Marimekko. 5. Lucero 16-pc. dinnerware set ($44.62) is inexpensive and brings nice color to your kitchen and dining. The orange dinnerware set is available both at Walmart (cheaper) and Target, so it’s really easy to find. Photo: Tuomas Kolehmainen, gloriankoti.fi Easy decorating – modern wall decals
