I'm still feeling skeptical about my choice of orange as my accent colour so I thought I would do a quick search to see how others have made it work. Here are my results...

Jenn and I spent the weekend at her place shopping and sewing. Here are some pictures of the end results.
The first picture is of the open shelving in my kitchen. We purchased the the 3 white storage containers for $2 each at the Dollarama. I think its a pretty nice way to conceal dog cookies.
The next picture is of my living room and shows the pillows that Jenn made for it. I got the fabric at Fabricland on sale for $3 a meter down from $10 a meter and all four pillows took only 1.5 meters worth of fabric. The orange colour is outside my comfort zone (I really like neutrals and earthy colours) but it is growing on me. I'm thinking I still need a few accents in orange to successfully integrate such a bright colour. Overkill maybe?
