Super Moon-Super Color

Last night's epic Harvest moon, with its bold burst of orange and apricot hues reminds me once again how vital nature is as a inspiration to both fashion and interior design.  

One of my favorite fashion designers, Naeem Khan, channeled a summer sunset in his 2014 Spring collection.
From salmon to cinnabar, you can turn up the volume and make a statement with orange or add subtle peach highlights to a room with the added benefit that the color makes everyone's skin look fabulous!
I'm so enamored with the color that I used Beacon Hills gorgeous Silk Lantern in a showhouse dining room earlier this year. Voluminous ballroom curtains were paired with muted gray for a fresh, modern twist.  
Amanda Nisbet paired her nature inspired tree floor lamp with lush orange curtains.
Katie Ridder's exotic bathroom features an cinnabar hued wallpaper.
A bright orange banquette plays off deep blue lacquered walls in a room by Miles Redd.
