I am SO into orange this summer. It's such a warm, pleasant, spicy
color, don't you think? The first photo is the lid of an African hand
carved soapstone box I picked up at HomeGoods, of all places. I also
found a luscious burnt orange silk throw there, last weekend, as well.
Clockwise in the collage photo, throw pillow from the sofa in the
family room at Willow Manor, my fave orange handbag, orange
ginger jar (also a HomeGoods find), and a sweet little piece of vintage
Orange brings to mind this poem I love, by Janet Frame.
At midday then the sweltering mother
bedded in wheat and wharves rose
to give food
gold sea and salt bread to the city.
Deep from her blue apron pocket
she drew a ripe orange to slice
and squirt light
--your mouth was stained with sun.
