Etsy Color: Orange
Logging on to Etsy is like walking into a gigantic galleria with a blindfold on – you can’t take a glance at a kiosk to find out where the hell all the cute stores are, and you certainly can’t ask anyone which way to head since your supposed to be a highly-esteemed shopping connoisseur.
Etsy is such a fantastic resource for all things vintage and handmade – and the thousands upon thousands of virtual mom-n-pop shops are typically the innovators and artists that inspire Mr. Corporate to stop in and shoplift (see: Etsy vs. Urban Outfitters controversy). It’s no surprise this happens (although it’s a total shame it does), as most products are ridiculously affordable and perfectly unique for those of us who like to maintain a series of conversation pieces throughout the home. Plus, the vast Etsy is the first venue I enjoy plunging into because, again, you just can’t find original and ornate stuff anywhere else, physically or virtually.
For instance, I think we’ve finally decided on an accent color for our wooden-white-and-khaki living room (fingers crossed this is the one!): orange. No, not Halloween orange – that’s weird – I’m talking orangey-melony-salmony-coral. Duh. Maybe think emberglow? Whatever the shade might be (or turn into), Etsy has especially helped to organize a few of my favorite orangey-melony-salmony-coral things…
