Midwest #3: Mansi's Orange Sunrise

Name: Mansi Location: Auburn Hills, Michigan Type of Home: Apartment

What inspired you to use color? Orange is the color that represents rebirth. It stands for all there is to come and all that is new. It screams welcome to a whole new you!

Inspiration continued: As I enter my apartment after a long and winding day, I want the orange hue to stand for the sunrise that will come the next day and make me feel like tomorrow is a new day and not cry over my today. Doesn't Fall stand for rebirth too? Melange of a beautiful sunset giving birth to a beautiful dawn!

Color Tip: Don't overuse orange. Too much orange will mean you are totally living in your tomorrow and not today! Orange and black go well together. .
