Bacon. X Marks the Spot

Do you love bacon? I'm going to assume that's a yes. I haven't met one person who does't love bacon - even my vegetarian son! 

Do you love bacon enough to put it on your walls? Not literaly of course but how about capturing those crispy, rich hues and bring them into your home? I think it's a great and delicious idea.  Come on! Let's build the perfect bacon cheese burger for your home.

I have a few colors here that I took right from the bacon itself. They are dark rich hues but are just gorgeous! Now the question is, where and how can you use these colors in your home? Let's try to figure that out.

The top color is very similar to Raucous Orange by Sherwin Williams. It's a super rich and spicy color that I see many people have in their kitchens. Here's how that would look. Now this is a contemporary kitchen but you can still use this color in just about any style kitchen. Also keep in mind, it it's too much color for you, use it in small doses or of course in accessories but this color would be great to start your day with.


Raucous Orange, Saucy Gold and Roycroft Copper Red by Sherwin Williams are the paint colors to use to get this look for your home. 

Like I said before, if you don't want to commit to these strong hues in your home, lighten them up just a bit and think about fabrics and accessories such as this Zimba Tangerine pillow from CR Laine Furniture.
