Orange for a Cheerier February

Whenever February hits I characteristically find myself longing for spring, yet still I’m in the grip of winter. The kiddos often troop home from school with drippy noses, a chill finds its way inside, and the skies are often a dull gray colour. It’s about this time of year that I find myself drawn to the colour orange. It’s known for its energizing effects, so I look for ways to scatter its essence in all the corners of my home, with hopes of brightening my days and lifting my spirits while I await spring. 

I’ve gathered some of my favorite household items in varying shades of persimmon, tangerine, rust, paprika, coral and apricot. There is a perfect shade of orange for everyone, so join me in sprinkling a bit of this enthusiastic hue throughout the home this month.
