<b>The Color</b>: Fresh-Squeezed Orange

Where to Use It: Whether it's juice from a roadside stand or cool sherbet on a hot day, orange has long been the color of summer. For a quick spruce-up, add orange or tangerine throw pillows to a neutral couch. If you're a true fan of the juicy color, add statement pieces such as painted side tables or a sideboard.
