Three Ways to Go Orange in the Entryway

As I open my doors to trick-or-treaters tonight, these three entryways will be somewhere in the back of my mind. They're very different from one another, but each incorporates orange - the color of the hour - in a successful way:

Allover: The first entry takes an allover approach with a soft, yellow-y orange. A contrasting door in kelly green completes this tidy entry. We love how this space so straight-forwardly provides the essentials: a roof over your head that's articulated with exposed framing, hooks for hanging scarves and jackets, a simle mat underfoot, and a lantern right by the door.
The Door: We love bright orange as an alternative to the traditional red front door. A bright welcome that will be seen both inside and out.
Accent Furniture:This entry takes orange about as far as it will go in one strong accent piece - a bench. It's a perfect complement to the soft blue walls and the bits of orange in the rug and artwork.
