A burst of citrus

Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! Is there any color more cheerful than orange? We think not, which is why we’ve put together a list of citrus-inspired home accents bursting with eye-catching style. Whether you want to take a room from drab to dazzling or simply add a pop of bold color to your overall home décor, we’re sure you’ll love these juicy-hued finds.

A burst of citrus

5. Toaster (Bodum, $60) 6. Seat (Horchow, $199) 7. Runner (CB2, $20) 8. Pillow (Inhabit, $54)


There's something about colorful kitchen appliances that we just can't get enough of. Not only are they fun to buy, they offer a simple way to spice up the busiest room in the house – your kitchen. Since toast is such a morning staple, we thought we'd showcase this fabulous orange toaster (Bodum, $60) -- the perfect way to wake up.

6Garden seat

Display this tangerine-tinted porcelain seat (Horchow, $199) inside or out to add a pop of bright color to your patio, porch or anywhere you want to punch up the surroundings. One thing's for certain – no matter where you place it, this elegant yet playful piece is sure to get noticed.

7Table runner

Take your next summer soirée to the next level with this vibrant orange table runner (CB2, $20), featuring a smattering of small white polka dots for added whimsy. We love how easy it is to set a fun and festive table by starting with this citrus-hued runner.

8Orange pillow

While we're partial to the brighter pops of our favorite juicy hue, we couldn't help but fall for this pretty oversize throw pillow in a lighter, creamier shade of orange (Inhabit, $54). Toss one or two on your bed or couch to really freshen up your space.

4 more fun ways to add a pop of orange

  1. Fill a wooden serving bowl with oranges, tangerines and other citrus fruit for a vibrant dose of the real thing.
  2. Orange and yellow cut flowers in a tall glass vase create a sunburst effect perfect for the kitchen counter or even the bathroom.
  3. An orange accent wall can be a great way to instantly give new life to a room. Opt for shades that have yellow or cream undertones for a more subtle splash of orange.
  4. Fill Mason jars with orange candies as a fun, colorful treat for guests – send them each home with their own jar after the party.
