This 'n That Thursdays: A New Color Favorite for Me -- Butternut!

These Vincent chairs from Home Decorators Collection in two different styles caught my eye recently thanks to their beautiful color called "butternut".  This yellowish orange shade is a perfect seasonal transition color, falling somewhere between summer's bright tangerine and fall's mellow pumpkin shades.  The versatile hue would pair well with so many colors.  For example, a couple of those retro chairs would add a little spice to this office space done in cool coastal colors of pale green and bright blue:

These Parvati lamps and Fadeaway area rug would look great in a sitting room with the slipper chairs:

To really pull out all the stops, exchange the above rug for this Floating Cubes area rug, and then add a purple Sutton sofa* for a living room that will proclaim you are definitely not afraid of color!

I love that butternut hue, and hope to see it used more in the future!

*Sadly, the Sutton sofa is no longer available, but an eerily similar purple Paolo sofa by Sitcom Furniture can easily substitute for it!
