Home Decor 101: Orange Does NOT Go With Blue


Hi everyone, Katie here.

Not long ago Glogirly did a little Townhouse redecorating. She switched things up from red and olive accents to blue and citron. At first I was thrilled. Even the rugs matched my eyes.


The accent pillows were modern and fresh.


My khaki colored napping blanket was replaced with a Caribbean blue one.


I even got my very own blue chair.

I'm certain orange was NEVER part of the color palette.

  1. The only way to cover that "obviously" out of place orange is to sit on it Katie! You better do it now before he gets too big for it!

  2. Well Katie, at least they'll know where he's been by the furs. That way you'll never get the blame for anything he's done. And, if you're sneaky.. you can hoard his furs and stick them in places he's not supposed to be! Or at the scene of crimes so you'll never be the one accused again!

  3. I don't know how it is in the States, but here, in our little country in Europe, I mean Belgium, it seems there are two coulours in the fashion shops: orange and blue... So, forget it: you will not dispose of Waffles Too because he does not fit in the Townhouse! :-)

    Smoochies to both of you!
    looloo

  10. Glogirly we kind of like him on blue. But nothing is more gorgous than YOU on it!

  11. Katie, we actually thinks he looks very nice with the blue. He is really more of a cream with nice gold stripes. Waffles rocks the blue chair.

  13. Well, Katie, I think orange goes with everything and I make sure I lay on everything to get some orange on it.

  18. Waffles Too looks good with the new decor. I say accept that he isn't going any place. I gave up long ago about getting rid of Abbi. We've just got to work with what we've got. Purrs, Ateret.

  19. She must have been anticipating W2 cos he'd have never gone with RED! Red and orange is a faux pas, whatever that is.

  20. We think Ornj goes with EVERYTHING!

  22. Katie, blue and orange are complimentary colors on the color wheel. That probably isn't what you wanted to hear, is it?

    ReplyDelete
  23. They are all pretty colors, but especially the orange!

  24. But look how adorable and sweet Waffles Too looks on that beautiful blue chair and blankie. An orange tabby goes good with everything and so does a pretty tuxie.

  31. Katie darling, we adore the muted tones. We think you should 'permanently' mute that orange one though.

  36. Katie, Orange and blue are the Miami Dolphins colors! We have similar colors in our founders office along with tan and brown. There is one orange accent named Jean Pierre--he's the eldest cat and Christine says we have to respect our elders. Waffles Too will learn!

  37. It scares me Katie to see you having to put up with so much uncouth behavior from W2...I worry what I might do if one of those orange, or any other color kitty thingies ever shows up in my home...ugh
