Is Orange Making a Comeback?

Is Orange Making a Comeback?

Orange was big a few years ago, then it died away for a while, and now we've seen it returning as a popular accent. Orange sheets, couches, and trim have all appeared recently on Apartment Therapy and it's reappearing as an upholstery option at chain stores like West Elm and CB2.

We love seeing it again, especially as a way to introduce some bold color into the mostly-neutral spaces that have dominated for the past couple of years. What do you think? Is orange making a comeback? Do you prefer it in small doses or do you think it could return as a popular wall color too?
